Halleluja  performed by Jeff Buckley  1995
Recommended by elizabeth [profile]

An amazing arrangement of this incredible song, it is haunting and pleading and desperate.

What'd You Come Here For?  performed by Trina & Tamara  1999
Recommended by MMMp [profile]

This is an R&B song that I first heard on BET. It begins with the hand claps from the song "Car Wash" and then goes into a typically groovy R&B dance song. I like it so much because it is very easy to dance to and the lyrics are about a girl going to a club and wanting to get her groove on while the guy she came with just stands there "like he's much too cool." This is typically how I feel when I go out. Hand claps continue throughout the song.

  19 May 02 ·MMMp: Just thought I'd add; the comment, "this is how I typically feel when I go out," is a borrowed line. I've read the same comment about the Pizzicato Five song "Love Love Song" (A Television's Workshop e.p., TRIAD 1994, Japan) and I think I wanted to put it to use for myself, but it seems an awkard fit now. I don't typically question why anyone came out if they're not dancing, I'm just eager to dance, and that is the same feeling behind the song, a nice conflict of expectations that maybe we've all felt before. It's nice!
Sweet Talkin' Woman  performed by Electric Light Orchestra  1977

Try to remove this from all the boring "classic rock" trappings its acquired over the years. Appreciate what a fascinatingly strange combination of overheated pop, symphonic grandeur, and rock-ish muscle this is. So 1977, yet so timeless. Thank you.

from Out of the Blue, available on CD (Columbia)

Gimme that Wine  performed by Lambert, Hendricks & Ross  1959
Recommended by tinks [profile]

"I can't cut loose without my juice!" Dave, Jon & Annie get their priorities straight.

from The Hottest New Group in Jazz, available on CD (Columbia)

  08 Apr 03 ·singjohn: An LA-based acapella group called "Sixth Wave" has an interesting version of this song. A sample of it can be found here: Love LHR! The Manhattan Transfer borrowed quite a bit from them!
Zazueira  performed by Astrud Gilberto & Stanley Turrentine  1971
Recommended by tinks [profile]

A very funky track from Astrud's final US album. Very bass-heavy and percussive, just an excellent song. Stanley Turrentine's tenor sax doesn't meld with Gilberto's voice nearly as well as Stan Getz' warmer tones did, but that's a minor flaw that doesn't detract from the overall song too much.

from Gilberto with Turrentine, available on CD (Columbia)
