Regina Spektor -Samson.
A beautiful song ,perfect melody plus lyrics.An oldie but steel a goodie.
The curious fact about this song is that the lyrics are so clear and easy but not simple that I can perfectly envision the story on my mind , like it was a videoclip. This used to happen all the time easily when I was a teenager, now is harder to achieve , but if I can concentrate i can pull it . But with songs like this , just comes naturally.

P.S:Pro tip in soundcloud, follow record labels , instead of just the artists,much wide universe. This time is Ed Banger Records , turn.
Ten years ago i attended a show called De La Guarda , i have never seen anything like that before. A combination of aerial acrobatics, dance ,tribal and electronic music. Plus interactivity with the public. My senses were awake at that performance.I learned that it was a show made by an Argentinian dance company that was having huge success in NYC and therefore around the globe.
Five years later i went to see the Part II of that show and it was called Fuerza Bruta a completely different spectacle but with the same fiesta ,interactivity , be amazed and censorial excited feeling.
A few days ago while zapping the t.v i bumped over MTV the Usher video called scream which was filmed at the Fuerza Bruta Show. I think this is a great example of how something that was being relativity small and alternative can become something big and for the masses. And i couldn’t be happier for the Latin American dance company because it means a greater exposition of their art to the world. Also i´m guessing that the bigger the phenomenon more future shows we will get as audience .Isn’t it?
Drive has an excellent soundtrack , it works perfectly with the picture coordination,flow and sentiment of the film. Here a compilation of my favorite tracks from diverse artists ,doing unusual music for their style (Desire case) and their well made mark.
Yesterday December the 10th of 2011 a strong 6.8 Richter scale earthquake shocked Mexico City and some other Mexican regions. For “chilangos” (people who live in the City ) was a very frightful moment because of the intensity and longitude of the earth movements.And people couldn’t help thinking about the terrible event that happened in 1985´s tremor. Nothing mayor happened in the city but people´s nervousness and panic.
To lighten up the tone a notch here a very funny , half in English and half in Spanish song about Earthquakes called: La Falla de San Andrés - San Andres Fault and performed by the hilarious and bilingual Kevin Johansen.
I just found this old video , from three years ago in my previously purchased list over itunes , finding it very current to our times and not feeling it old at all. The illustrations are the best part.
