Music That Makes Your Soul Hurt (in a good way)

Zara and Dmitry Pevtsov performing at the Day of Russia celebration in Crimea on June 12, 2015.  This is a mix of an old Russian folk song “Ohh you wide steppe” and “Dle Yama” (which i’m not even sure what language that is in, maybe Crimean Tatar or Tadjik.)  But it sounds amazing.

Just like some of the comments said, it makes your soul hurt, and brings tears to your eyes.


French Pop Music at its Best: Indila – Derniere Danse

Ohh my GOD !!!  This is a great track by a French speaking Indila.  I first heard this song performed by a kid on a Russian “Voice” rip-off TV show.  This 14 year old girl with an amazing voice sang this song, made my chest cringe, and brought a tear to my eye.  Literally.

In fact it was so awesome, I found a clip.  Enjoy.

One Hit Wonders: Bloodhound Gang – The Bad Touch

You and me, baby, ain’t nothing but mammals, so let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel.  Hahaha. Another blast from the past.  This time in a form of a one hit wonder: Bloodhound Gang. I don’t care what they say, its a catchy tune.  Apparently YouTube users agree.  The video has 247.6 million views as of right now.

Blast From The Past : Snow – Informer

Wow.  Talk about bringing back some memories. This track was all over the PPV Music Videos channels in Los Angeles.  I first came to this country at the end of 1991, and I was just 12 years old, and just learning to speak English when this song came out.  I was in LA, and Hip Hop was hopping in the California in the 1990s.

Years went by, and I completely forgot about it, but then I downloaded a “Mix for Your Ride #31”, by this Russian DJ, DJ Farta. And one of the tracks was Informer, by Snow.  So naturally, I had to throw that into my collection.  For the old times sake.  Old school.

Truth through music: Kate Tempest – Europe is Lost

I love this girl. She speaks the truth in her tracks. Although this is purely British, with the accent than all, she reminds me of Immortal Technique. If you enjoyed this track, check out Revolutionary. Vol 2 by Immortal Technique. Bringing you the truth in the form of Hip Hop.
