Weekend Retro Rewind

 
 











Since I update FourthGradeNothing.com daily, I've decided to take weekends off and simply feature songs from my past... Maybe you've heard 'em. Maybe you haven't. 

Let's start with collaboration.

Tales From My Head blog talked about how excited she was to discover her two faves worked together on a tune. This inspired me to find collaboration tracks I dig and boy, are there many. I love British music and those Brits bang out some awesome songs together. It's like nuts in chocolate and peanut butter on banana -- if you like that sort of thing, you'll get what I'm saying.

To this day, I can listen to these two Chemical Brother songs featuring Beth Orton over and over and over again. I wish I had a voice as lovely as Beth Orton's.

"Where Do I Begin" Beth Orton & Chemical Brothers, Dig Your Own Hole circa 1997

"Alive Alone" - Beth Orton & Chemical Brothers, Exit Planet Dust circa 1995

I like peanut butter and banana with a little coco powder thrown in.

My favorite chemical brothers song is The Golden Path featuring the Flaming Lips. It's also one of my favorite videos.

You can't go wrong with nuts, chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas. YUM! I once had a friend who loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches but he said they were too dry so he always added mayo? I guess whatever floats your boat?!

Great music choice!! ;-)

Yum, love p butter and banana.
Reese's cups are my favorite fruit.
Good idea taking weekends off.

Thank you for stopping at my blog. I'm returning the follow. Unfortunately, I never heard of the Chemical Brothers, but those tunes are pretty cool.

What an amazing blog, I just adore it. I might have to do my own "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing". I guess I'd be a Fourth Grade Nobody...

It's like reading my life story lol...

Touche`, I will be following your blog regularly. =)

I love your blog! I'm so glad for this FF thing; I've found some awesome reads because of it. Yours is my fave so far. ;)

Great sounds. I love hearing other bloggers' fave tuneage. Most of their picks (including yours) are way better than anything I'd post....except maybe Winger.

I found you through Friday Follow and am now following you. I hope you follow me back. I haven't actually heard of the chemical brothers..

Awesome! Chemical Brothers rock!

Beth Orton can sing you are right! I like Galvanize by Chemical Bros!

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

Thank you for that! These days I am filled with the Wiggles music and i need to update my iTunes!

I love Beth Orten and those songs were a breath of fresh air. I heart alternative music.

We used to have 2 stations that played really great stuff and now they are gone :-((
