I left you all with a drought, and so now: a Music Monday deluge. The sirens crafted a playlist of divine proportions today, one so glorious I couldn’t possibly keep it to myself. Truth is stranger than fiction, and mythology makes for reality’s greatest musings… Art is expressed reaction to good and evil; Pandora: the curious curator of this gallery we call life – and the best thing to happen to music in a long time… ah, the wonderful world of playlistism #ohletsdoit
The Fugees – Ready or Not
Jay-Z – D’Evils
Lady GaGa – Just Dance (Red One Remix) ft. Kardinal Offishall
“This ain’t a mixtape, but the tapes mix…” today’s Music Monday is a melange of headlines, and hot tracks… kinda like the movie Good Hair.
DIY: Soloist covers “Poker Face” and “Irreplaceable” … 4 iPhones, 4 apps, 0 anytime minutes. iPhone: for when you need to stop calling, and start cutting tracks – mhmm Honey B.
DC’s Tuesday Night Primer: The Temper Trap & Florence and the Machine (4/6 at the 9:30 Club: Sold Out)

Quick and dirty lunchtime/BBQ mix for the holiday. Literal mix of older, new-ish, pop, hip-hop, this and that. It’s a general smattering: a bit random, not particularly thematic, but a universally decent mix for a mid-day holiday meal.
Start off mellow for the swelter. Pre-interlude: less local, a bit bossa nova and ska over funk, try it on for size …
Ridiculous mixtape: The Grammy Remix Project
a taste …
and now for the tenors
The rest of the best:
