Jimmy Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy Jimmy

While we’re still talking Bappi Lahiri, here’s what’s probably his most famous song, Jimmy Jimmy Aaja, which of course MIA sampled (covered? recreated?) in her song Jimmy.

Speaking of Jimmies, here are The Undertones, doing their completely unrelated song “Jimmy Jimmy.”

Meredith Monk Time

This is seriously my favorite thing in the world right now. This is a part — well, two parts, I think — of a long piece of Monk’s called Dolmen Music, available on an album of the same name. A dolmen is a kind of neolithic tomb, so put this on your MP3 player the next time you visit one.

DJ Shadow sampled the cello from the album version of this piece for his song Midnight in a Perfect World. I don’t blame him. It’s a nice cello riff. But who’s going to have the guts to sample the nying nying nying nying no no no nying nying nying nying no no no bits?

Monk has a website and a Facebook page. Go “like” her on Facebook!

Low Sea, No Evil

1960

This is sort of my favorite song in the world right now. (Note: the worst dancer in the world, like worse than Elaine on Seinfeld, makes an appearance at 1:55.)

Fun fact: The band is not French, but Irish.

This song ain’t bad neither, and this is a real video and everything:

Ok, so now I have Porcelain Raft’s ‘Drifting In and Out’ stuck in my head

In my defense, it is awfully earwormy.

That said, I have no idea what’s going on in the video, or why it’s so damn smoky. I will not be eating at that restaurant, that’s for sure. Second-hand smoke kills!
