2. Renaldo and the Loaf – Hambu Hodo

habo

I promised earlier more Renaldo and the Loaf songs and here it is finally, all the way up here. The second best song. Ever. It’s called Hambu Hodo and is the weirdest shit. The shit you just can’t stop dance to even if you wanted. It’s making you throw up and want to eat at the same time. And the lyrics! What the fuck is going on!!

Stop right here!!! This is by far the best thing that has come out of Awesome tapes blog. It blew my mind and now the world is upside down and I don’t know if I’m standing of flying, or perhaps dancing!

5. Carte De Sejour – Ouadou

What the hell is going on? Is it a plane? It is The Strokes? No, it’s French, it’s from the 80s, it’s great. Especially the vocals. Especially the drumming. Especially everything.

This is African Rock at it’s best. It’s impossible not to dance and smile when you hear this blast. Found on Awesome tapes from Africa (of course!).

8. Ilayaraja ft Kamal Haasan – Vikram Vikram

vikram

This Tamil megahit is taken from the 1986 Sci-fi action film Vikram. I have never seen the film but I’ve played this song over, and over, and OVER. I have played it so much that I started to hate it. Then I played it some more which resulted in love again! Well, it’s just in-fucking-credible.

10. Rondo Veneziano – La Serenissima

rondo

We have now arrived to top TEN FEL songs ever. At place number ten we have this splendid track because we love baroque music. And pop music. Rondo Veneziano does both in one lovely blend with this song called La Serenissima. The only problem with this banger is that it’s just too short!

Don’t forget to checkout the video.

11. Кино – Камчатка

kamchatka

This is by far the best Russian (including Sovjet times) song ever made. When I think of Russia and its culture, this is the soundtrack of the nation. I’m not sure what the song is about since I don’t speak russian, but with help of Google it’s not about the Kamchatka peninsula, instead I think he’s singing about an old underground rock club in Leningrad, but I’m not sure. When I Google translate the lyrics I find this amazing bit:

“I was looking for wine here,
and found the third eye
My hands are made of oak”

Not sure if Google are translating it right but hey, it sounds amazing!

12. Sunforest – Overture to the Sun

Sunforest

Well this song made me a sucker for music from the middle ages for ages. First I started a band called Knight Music because of this obsession. I want a cembalo now. I have to have one. And a horn. This is the cembalo song of cembalo songs. And the horn song of horn songs. When I hear this song I wonder why someone hasn’t invented the time machine so I can go back there to party with them when they wrote this classic. WTF. Cembalo is by far the best instrument. I go crazy when I hear it. U know that the cembalo was created before the piano right? And horn, how good isn’t that? I wish more music was made on these beautifully sounding instruments. If you have a cembalo or a middle age horn you’re not using at the moment, could we please borrow them?

14. Moğollar – Dinleyiverin Gari

mogg

Another Moğollar hit! This one a bit more dancier than the other Moğollar song posted here earlier. If I’ve done my research right, it was recorded during the 70s. Grow a beard and press play!

15. Tiny Tim – I Got You Babe

Tiny Tim Performs On A TV Show

It’s a cover yes. But what about the voice? It’s straight out of special street, you know the one. I don’t remeber the first time I encountered this magician of sound but I do remember what I heard was really weird and since then I can’t really get it out of my head. And it shouln’t get out of there either. Please stay in head 4ever Tiny.
