Playing tracks by
The Stranglers, Zero 7, Kyu Sakamoto, Syl Johnson and Dead Prez.
This mix is named after a certain line of one of my all time favourite stand up performances by Eddie Murphy (either Raw or Delirious, not sure.) Funny thing about this album is that Eddie is pretty badly homophobic in his routine. But his album cover features him wearing a bow tie and a flower in his hair.
This mix also features a usual trip into atypical music choices like “Golden Brown” by The Stranglers. It’s not hip hop or funk, it’s in their because it’s top shelf.
Other strange inclusions, that basically go with the “Apocalypse Now” record I have are “Sukiyaki” by Kyu Sakamoto. Such an incredible song I have 2 copies on 7”. It’s an interesting story behind the single because the original track’s name was “Yume de aimashou”, but that was deemed too hard to pronounce so the English record label Pye, renamed it “Sakimoto”. The song finally got to America on Capitol records and made the Billboard number 1.
