Rescue Me

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in tonight. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Tuesday nights are now quiet nights - after the one of the "peeps" on yahoo turned me on to the Dennis Leary show "Rescue Me"... I'm hooked.

A few of you have emailed me about the songs of the day/night on Hazelspeeps - and how my choices (I'm assuming that means my music tastes) range from "eclectic" to "different" to "old" (where in the hell did you come up with that) - I'm guessing that "old" refers retro choices. This morning was the calm before the storm at work - so I start goofing about putting together the Hazelspeeps Greatest Hits - The Lost Sessions compilation.

The double CD set would comprise great songs from the past and relative present that most of you have probably never heard (apologies to those of you with evolved musical tastes that know the songs about to be listed - bravo!). In no particular order and not confined to any particular genre of music - I give you the collection:

Disc 1 - Songs to start of your day.

Kotetja (Oh Bolilla) - Stewart Copeland. African rhythms and lyrics - great beat. A celebration song.

Watusi Rodeo - Guadalcanal Diary. I will never forget the dance of the two Asian cuties. You have to see the video - one classic scene when they sing "Warriors standing with spears in their hands, wondering whats next from a crazy white man."

Love Kills - Joe Strummer. Memories of mornings in Acapulco that began with a king can of Tecate. From the Sid and Nancy soundtrack.

Gypsy Blood - Mason Ruffner. A great driving song - definitely a guy song.

Mystic Eyes - Van Morrison. Another great driving song - everyone should listen to Van Morrison.

Tearin Us Apart - Eric Clapton and Tina Turner. Just listen to it - trust me.

Set Me Free (Rosalee) - Los Lobos. Latinos that can rock with anyone. How many have "Thoughts of Hazel Mae" after hearing this one?

Saturday Night - The Razorbacks. A Sunday morning song if there ever was one - these guys were big on the University circuit back when Hazel was hangin' in Toronto.

Conductin Thangs - Maestro Fresh Wes. Rap with music - Wes was very fresh when Hazel was hangin' in Toronto.

Voices/Cars - White Label Remix. A mash up of a Police song with a tecnho classic from Gary Numan.

Disc 2 - Night time songs your girls will love you for (or guys if you are so inclined - not that there's anything wrong with that).

All Come True - World Party. Look it up on the blog - you'll get it.

When Ye Go Away - Waterboys. See above.

Big Log - Robert Plant. A slow groovin song with a latin flavour to it - it definitely isn't Zeppelin, but believe me it works...one of my all-time favourites.

Suedehead - Morissey. A great great song - period.

Long Hot Summer - Style Council. A slow sultry jazzy little number.

Let Me Be The One - Expose. Cuban hotties doing latin flavoured dance music - 80's style.

Just An Illusion - Imagination. 80's house/dance music - great beat.

Bed's Too Big Without You - The Police. If you have the box set - check the live version...it really kicks.

Locura - Mariza. New style fado from Portugal...you don't have to understand the words to get the message.

Minha Alma de Amor Sedente, Sequiosa - Misia. This one will get you if you read the English translation.

There you have it...try finding some of them, they have the Hazelspeeps seal of approval on them. Enjoy!

Have a great one peeps.

Hazel I hope things are groovy in your world - this double CD set is available upon request. haha

Song of the night - I just gave you 20 - take your pick.

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
