JANUARY 29, 2009 MP3S OF NEW TRACKS TRICKLING DOWN TO YOU It's mashup Reaganomics! You'd think that posting mp3s of some of the new tracks I debuted on Saturday at my all-video set at Bootie would be easy, since I, like, already made them, and stuff. But that just shows how little you know! Or, um, how normal your brains are, since my brain won't leave well enough alone. I've been tweaking and remastering these little items all week, and so, to maximize their impact (ha!) I figured I'd dole them out one by one. First up, it's the latest "remix" of "Boulevard of Broken Songs" (the original of which you can find over on the Music page). Tell us more about it Jim.
Kanye West vs. Green Day vs. Oasis - "Boulevard of Flashing Lights"
Click to play: I hope people understand that there's a bit of self-mockery going on here, in the sense that it's amusing to me that one would take one's "hit" and then beat it to death with cheesy remixes, in, as I've said before, as good a sign as any of being on the back side of one's career arc. Did I just take away the funny by over-explaining it? Damn, that happens to me a lot. Anyhoo, isn't that Kanye song awesome? Isn't Kanye awesome? I seem to be mucking about with that guy's stuff a lot lately, but I promise I've totally liked his tunes since a way long time ago, for real.
More coming next week, along with another exciting edition of the Party Ben Mailbag. Oh, and PS, anybody around the vicinity of Europe interested in seeing Party Ben play tunes and/or videos this summer?
