Kiss Me, I’m the DJ!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone! Unfortunately, I can’t say “Kiss Me I’m Irish!” but I can say “Kiss Me…bc I’m the DJ” 🙂 In light of all the drinking festivities going on tonite (or for those ambitious ones… could be during the day), I have elected to post music about DRINKING! Whether you’re sipping on green beer at an Irish Pub, decadently dressed in GREEN so that you won’t get pinched, or feeling brave and doing an Irish jig, I wish you a Happy & Safe drinking extravaganza and hope you will throw these songs on to your ipod for some music that will get you in the mood!

In case you DIDN’T know the story:

Legend                                                                                                                                                     St Patrick’s Day is held on 17 March, which is believed to be the day he died. Patrick was captured by Irish raiders from his home in Wales and reputedly herded sheep on the slopes of Slemish in County Antrim during his captivity. He managed to make his way home after six years, but later returned to Ireland with a mission to convert the Irish to Christianity.

Legend has it that he used the shamrock to teach the concept of the Holy Trinity and banished snakes from the island. It is unlikely there ever were any snakes in Ireland, but the snake story may be a reference to serpent, a symbol of evil, and the driving out a reference to Patrick’s mission to rid Ireland of pagan influence.

Irish Saying:

There are many good reasons for drinking,
One has just entered my head.
If a man doesn’t drink when he’s living,
How in the hell can he drink when he’s dead?

Songs:

Riva Starr – I was Drunk

Benny Benassi – I Am Not Drunk

Mr. V – Put Your Drink Down (Bob Sinclar Remix)

Florence  + The Machine – Hurricane Drunk

Since there will be lots of KISS ME, I’m this or that here’s one perfect for the kissing occasion! Bob Sinclar vs. Daddy S Groove – Kiss My Agony

Do You Hear What You’re Listening to?

These abstract wordless movements / they start off cells that haven’t been touched before / these cells are virgins waking up slowly / My headphones they saved my life / Your tape it lulled me to sleep (Bjork – Headphones)

They’re your escape, your journey, your solace as you put them on and they channel you into that musical realm that belongs to you and only you. They are the medium that takes you from reality to fantasy. As they rest on your head generously pumping sounds into your ears, you are able to bury yourself in a mood, daydream, or even temporarily run away into a sea of music notes.

Since these objects of musical transference play such a big part in our entire listening and DJ’ing experience, I wanted to share some pictures of my favorite headphones!

So time to take out those headphones, whatever color, shape or size they are, download these songs, and get excited!

SayCet: Opal (Error :: Love – Opalowsky Remix)

Kid Sister: Daydreamin’ (Jakwob Remix)

Booka Shade: Regenerate

Fred Lila, ImanoS: Be Loved

Mélomane Monday: Turn the Tide

I really don’t know where to begin for this post… the title today pretty much speaks for itself. I feel inspired to write about what’s been happening in my life recently and to sum it up one word it would be change. I’m sure we all have varying feelings and opinions on change – most of us, included myself, don’t like major changes occurring in our lives (especially change beyond our own power). But sometimes, change isn’t so bad. Change can be the precursor to new beginnings and may also lead to the bettering of ourselves and our lives if we are able to accept it. As always, I have listed some lyrics in these songs that I feel are appropriate for this post.

Di-Rect – Times are Changing (East and Young Remix) Everybody is in a separate zone /All together but we’re so alone/Staring out through a wall of glass/Look away because it’s gonna crash

Bobina – Time and Tide (Gareth Emery Mix) “Every water bonds, where it meets the coast line.
The birth of a brand new day…”

Schiller, Nadia Ali – Try (Thomas Gold Remix) “Believe it’s true, you know that I try to make you feel alright”

Fenech Soler – Stop and Stare “Stop and Stare because we don’t know where we’re going”

**Morgan Page – Only Human “After all we’re only human, flesh and blood we’re only human…”
