MidNight Gems - Undiscovered, Underrated and Forgotten Songs vol.11 "Guilty Little Pleasures"
For those of you that are new to my MidNight Gems series. Welcome to this nightly trip on which we will uncover & recover some amazing covers and we will do it a little different tonight....
It´s guilty pleasure night.... as 11 is a bit of a foolish number I thought I would give you a bit of insight in my corrupted musical soul....hence tonight we will be playing my Guilty Pleasures.
As a DJ in an alternative Rock& dance club I always tried to push it to the limits...both sides of the limit. Hence walking the very thin line between to heavy and to popular.....and that attitude was inspired by DJ Raymond . He was the only DJ in that club that new how to incorporate Madonna´s Ray of Light into an alternative set.
Yes ...that brought back memories......and still it´s probably one of her best songs ever. And even though Lady Gaga has done an amazing job becoming the Madonna of the 00´s & Poker face would have been a very nice follow up to this song ..... I hope you forgive me that I am not letting the mix lead our trip.
Today is all about pleasure and there is one song ....by Ms Gaga....Ga Ga that really does it for me:
The definition of a guilty pleasure for me is a cheesy or extreme poppy song that gives you that little warm glow inside....and one of the worst is one that lights the fire while you place the flowers in the vase....
Of Course movies or series are a great place for cheesiness and one of the worst has to be this one....I was in love with the original..but maybe secretly I like this one better and luckily we landed at #8 so it´s time for a cover.
And now my friends the end in near and so i draw my all time favorite guilty pleasure:
It come from the 80´s ...it was the first vinyl 45 I ever bought..... I was a cold war kid....caught in the middle between the USSR and USA.....afraid that one day they would clash over my head and secretly in love with Nikita´s psycho cold blue eyes.
Being a former DJ playing about everything and having a uncompleted study of radio journalism I have been wanting to do this for years....Thought about it many nights and guess now it´s time to finally take it to the streets.
Hope you enjoyed this slightly confronting wave of amazing music and you still feel like joining me on the next trip as vol 11. of Midnight Gems is coming soon.
