I stumbled through Chinese pop on Spotify for like 15 minutes after a misidentified Shazam linked me to a Chinese song and then I just followed the related stuff.

And eventually found this:

As best as I can tell, it's not a song about Untitled Goose Game, despite the cover. But it's weirdly catchy in a cheesy sort of way?!?

Neil Cicierega released another album of mashups, it's free to download as well if you want your own copy.

Ah the Pixies song is quite good! Their last album was, too! Paz is quite a formidable singer :)

I just read in the news that Billie Eilish released her James Bond theme song video, and I went to see it and...it is very boring. I mean, her album was praised to high heavens a while ago so I listened in and it was the same, so I wasnt really surprised. However, Hans Zimmer and Johnny Marr collaborated on that song, so at least there's those elements that are noticable and make it a bit more passable. I get it, its not cool anymore to shit on popular things, but my god I dont get the hype for that music at all. Its just such a forgettable, exchangable snoozefest. But the comments on the YT video were so full of adoration as if she's literally god bringing them paradise or something. Honestly bizarre. I get loving stuff, of course, and getting excited when your favourite artists bring out new stuff. Sure, happens to me too, but dear god, its like those people have never listened to music before at all.
Right, sorry for that rant. Now back to being oblivious to the existance of Billie Eilish :p

If anyone remembers Danny Elfman not as a soft spoken film and tv composer, but as the hell-raiser who used to kick all sorts of ass as the frontman for the new wave band Oingo Boingo, it seems we might be in for a big surprise.

5 years ago, on Halloween, exactly 20 years after Oingo Boingo's farewell show, he did what he said he never would: he grabbed the same guitar he used on the final concert, and performed Dead Man's Party (a personal favourite of mine for the Halloween season) as an encore on one of the Nightmare Before Christmas live cast performances.



And now, as we approach Halloween 2020, and the 25th anniversary of not only Oingo Boingo's end, but also the farewell of him as a new wave/pop rock artist, he has posted the following:

Today we recommend revisiting another beloved pop classic from the 00's, also prominently featured on GTA V's Non-Stop Pop FM 100.7 radio station. This version removes the staccato 4/4 rhythms and by doing so turns the song into the no-holds-barred tear-jerking ode about the frustration and pain of a failing relationship that it is at heart.
Featuring Zara Larsson on vocal duty and Jules Buckley conducting the Heritage Orchestra.

Listen, (lowers voice), I'm not that much into the whole spoopy season thing, but if it's your thing, I'm enough of an imaginary music-recommendation maitre'd professional to come up with something. Never worry. Just please don't make me and the rest of the waitstaff dress up as ghosts. Please.

Please.

Oh, you're back. You really do enjoy the pumpkin-heavy menu and the horror theme, don't you. Well you're in luck, after the psychological horror from last week, the chef has upped the ante to existential dread. Have fun with that.
