Will you be our Valentine? (Jaime’s Mix)

12 Feb
In honor of Valentine’s Day, we Daybowbow staffers decided to make mixes of our favorite love songs. We ask you to forget your cynicism, open your hardened hearts and, well, be our valentine. Also, feel free to steal any of our lists, or some combination thereof, and make a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone.

As opposed to Ms. Bagherpour, I’m pretty anti-Valentines day as I tend to find the whole thing pretty droll due to the obligations involved. No matter if you’re for or against the holiday there’s an obligation tied up in it–either you’re making it a point to spend the day like any other day, or you’re forking out wads of cash for no reason whatsoever. (Note: When I worked in a restaurant I loved the hell out of the holiday. It was money heaven). Anyway, in an effort to be a part of the site’s theme I’ve decided to concoct a list. Please don’t read too much into it.

Talking Heads- This must Be the Place (Naive Melody)

I am not, and will never be talented enough to sum up the greatness of this song. Let’s just say it’s one of the few love songs ever written by David Byrne, because by his own admission writing about love is one of the most difficult things one could do. That being said, he absolutely nails it.

Broken Social Scene- Lover’s Spit

An outright slap in the face to meaningless young love, Kevin Drew’s sprawling attack at what is precieved to be beautiful lends a certain weight to the argument that we may all just be fooling ourselves by letting emotions rule all.

Prince- Let’s Pretend we’re married

Prince is undoubtedly the godfather of sex music, and with a chorus like “Excuse me but I need a mouth like yours/2 help me forget the girl that just walked out my door/Let’s pretend we’re married and do it all night/I won’t stop until the mornin’ light” he proves that you don’t need to tell someone you “want to fuck them like an animal” to be seductive. Just make sure to follow it up with something like “I sincerely wanna fuck the taste outta your mouth”. Seriously, any time someone tries to say they like to do it to that insipid NIN song, it’s hard not to laugh. Continue reading

Man, Starbucks is fucking terrible about their Internet access, if it wasn’t the closest place to work at I’d never go there.

Wilco- You Never Know

Man there was a bunch of white people at Good Records last night, and I’m not trying to offend by saying that. (ok, maybe a little.)


Tuesday

Patrick Wolf- I just Wasn’t Made For These Times(Beach Boys Cover)

The legions of kids at this show are going to regret this one day, mark my words this look/movement makes the Flock of Seagulls fad look well though out.

Plastiscines- La Rgle Du Jeu

One of my best friends dates a girl from Germany, she’s cute, hip, and an all around vixen. She would eat this shit up, and it annoys me.

I’m not usually this negative, blame the weather.

Picking a poster is aways a bit of a bitch

So, our Art Director Blaire, mocked up a bunch of posters for the showcase next week, and I have no idea which one to use, so I’m opening up a poll to you people, so we can have a democratic decision, but first a word on the bands. Continue reading
