«Flashback« Sponge – Molly / Plowed

Sponge_Rotting Pinata

to see wide open with a head that’s broken

♫ Sponge – Molly (Sixteen Candles) / 1994

I always knew that one of my favorite songs from the 90s was “Molly (Sixteen Candles)” and that it was performed by Sponge. Hence the reason why I tracked this jam down to put up here. In the process of putting this post together I heard mention of their other hit off their ’94 debut Rotting Piñata, “Plowed.” Not remembering what that sounded like I nabbed it too. Holy shit! It’s that song! “Plowed” is for sure another flashback-inducing formative-years jam that I am embarrassed to admit I did not realize was by Sponge as well. Better for you kids, though. Double whammy flashback this week. Both of these jams are super nostalgia inducing for me. I don’t know why exactly but they both bring an instant surge of nondescript emotion. Crazy.

♫ Sponge – Plowed / 1994

Because I love it you, I’ve thrown in Sponge’s cover of the Speed Racer theme. Listen to it on repeat for 2 hours and I guarantee you’ll have ore fun than that Whackowski bros joint.

BONUS: ♫ Sponge – Go Speed Racer Go (cover)

SIA has taken a song YOU’VE heard before and CHANGED it. For the better.

sia

making waves was your hobby and i asked you to move me

♫ Sia – You’ve Changed

About a year ago Sia did a guest spot on a track for Lauren Flax called “You’ve Changed.” It was blogged about. People enjoyed it. Life moved on. BUT! Apparently Sia enjoyed it A LOT, cause she jacked the song for her forthcoming LP We Are Born, kicked the jam up 8 notches, and then leaked it for the world to enjoy. That’s how you do it, girl! This thing is dance beast that will get you hyped for sure. That guitar riff is epic and the delivery of “for the be-teh-errr” is on point. Kinda hard to believe this is the same Sia that had everyone crying during the season finale of Six Feet Under. Anyway, I’m stoked on her newfound energy and am looking too see what else she has cooked up for us.

♫ Sia – Buttons (CSS Remix)

In the meantime here get your rocks off to this awesome treatment CSS gave “Buttons.” One of my favorite remixes.

Remix Roundup Vol. 13 /// 11-20-09

Photo by Daniel GreeneIn my never ending quest to make these roundups leaner and meaner this post was supposed to be onl 8 songs deep. Then I started putting everything together and it was one “Oh, shit! What about….” after another. Anyway, here is another remix beast for your weekend pleasure. Some real jamaroonies in this batch so get pumped!

THE COOL KIDS X HEY CHAMP = something we WE ARE digging. CHAMPIONS of remixing can do that to us.

coolkids-champions

both heels clickin’ like they runnin’ in the same race

♫ The Cool Kids x Hey Champ – (We Are) Champions

The Cool Kids make hip-hop, and they exist in the world. I’m fine with that. I’m just not that into their stuff. Bring Hey Champ into the mix and now you have my attention. Apparently “Champions” is a track by The Cool Kids that I have never heard before and I’m guessing Hey Champ found it while Googling themselves and decided to make it awesome. It worked. They are champions. Woo. This jam won’t blow you out of your seat but it will make you sink into it a littler cooler and a little sexier. As long as you resist that urge to pop your collar.

Remix Roundup Vol. 12 • 11-6-09

Do I even need to write intros to these things anymore? I’m trying to keep these things leaner and meaner so let’s get on with the show!

♫ Prairie Cartel – Cracktown (Hey Champ Remix) / Umm, did you read who is on this track? Yeah, its fresh, but you knew that already. Bust out the strobe light and get freaky. [original post / more HC]

♫ Fool’s Gold – Surprise Hotel (Mad Decent’s Toadally Krossed Out Remix) / Toad croaking! Yes! Leave it up to Mad Decent (Diplo from Major Lazer, as far as I know) to come up with that stroke of brilliance. [original post]

♫ Major Lazer – Jump Up (Laza Beam Remix) / Speaking of the Major, how’s this jam for a “Jump Up” remix. Nothing mindblowing but it’s hard to mess up the banger-ocity on this track.  [original post]

♫ Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me (Gigamesh Remix – FINAL Version) / Mike Posner is back with a new mixtape full of his stoner hip-hop jams. There is an early version of this Gigamesh remix on it but ignore that business cause this is the version that you are supposed to be loving. If you are listening then you know why. [original post / more Gigamesh]

♫ Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) / It’s A-Trak on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, no surprise it’s a goodie. Better late than never.

♫ Phoenix – Armistice (YACHT Remix) / My favorite new remixers thrown down on this Phoenix jam (from their Wolfgang remix album.) If only they could make their own jams this listenable. [more Phoenix / YACHT]

♫ Passion Pit – Little Secrets (Hey Champ Remix) / Hey Champ put this one through the discofier for a jam worth of your best head bobbing, finger snapping, dance moves.  [more PP / HC]

♫ Just Jack – Doctor Doctor (Fred Falke Remix) / Fred Falke mellows this jam right out, turning it into one of those walking-home-at-twilight jams. [original post / more FF]

♫ Sean Bones – Dancehall (Bodega Girls Remix) / This one gets a bit repetitive but I’ve also found myself zoning out to it.  [original post / more BG]

♫ The Hood Internet – Just A Friendomania (Biz Markie vs Phoenix vs Classixx) / The Hood Internet are back again with this decade-mixing mashup that is inspired, to say the least. [more HI]
