Ordinary world by Duran Duran

This is maybe the best use of a song in a movie, I really like this movie Layer Cake, in this video since the begining you can hear the song in a moderate volume then the volume turn up and make a better atmosphere.

If you want to watch the movie you can see the video, there's no spoiler here, just something out of context.

Enjoy it

Song of the Day (Major Tom)

The Shiny Toy Guns is an American indie-rock band formed in 2002 from Los Angeles, California, they have released two albums: "We are pilots" and "Season of Poison", both of them sound pretty well.

In 2009 they performed a cover of Major Tom (Coming home) (it is a Peter Schilling's song) this song was used for Lincoln MKZ 2010's ad and after that they recorded a video for the full version of this song (you can check the video from their website)

Everytime that I hear this song and I'm driving, I feel like I'm going out of this world and everything keeps behind my way, a great sensation for a few moments.

The following are the original Lincoln MKZ ad and the Official video by Shiny Toy Guns.

Hey okay!

Well, this is the next coming new single by Anneke van Giersbergen & Agua de Annique. Anneke had great plans for this year, in 2008 I was talking with Jacques de Haard and after that I knew that they were planning to record and release a new album, but the highlight here is that in order to make and record their album, Anneke and her husband would build their own studio just in their home!!!!, that's great!!!!!, now Anneke has all the freedom to do anything that she and her band are having in mind.

The name of their new album is: In your room, up to now I've just listened "Hey, okay!" and I can say it's really a quite good song with a different style than the used in Air or in Pure Air. This new style is sticky and maybe after hearing this song you'll be surprise yourself repeating the rythm of it. I really like the lyric of this song, and I can't wait to listen the complete album.

"Hey okay!" will be realeased in Oct 6th, and "In your room" will be released in Oct 30th, these are good news for their fans that have been waiting for a new dose of Agua de Annique's music.

Up to date neither the album nor the new single have been published in Amazon, so that I think that a best place to buy it is the official band's store (you have time to save money and get it on time, yeah!)

Here's an official video where you can listen the new single, let me know what do you think about it.

Song of the Day

Transformers is one of my favorite movies of 2008, robots, battles, awesome transformations and an outstanding beauty Megan Fox.

After watching the movie I went directly to Mix up and bought Transformers: The Album, I have to say that it's a good album, BUT it is NOT the OST or Score (I thought it was the OST), this album only has 3 songs from the motion picture the others were just placed in the disc to "achieve" an album. If you are looking for a new rock album maybe it can be a good option, but I suggest to hear the album in the store before buying it.

After all this background the song of the day is:

This moment by Disturbed

I don't remember if this song is played in the movie, but it's a nice one, yeah!

Here's a video from youtube:

Have a nice thursday.

A Geek Star is not the same than a Rock Star

Today I found this hilarious Intel´s commercial, a good one and one of my top 20's commercial, it's incredible how a "Celebrity" is not exactly the same in different context.

Enjoy it, this is at least to laugh a little for today, yeah!

Song of the day - March 24th

Today I have been a really busy day so that I had to let the random option of my iPod turnned on the whole day.

The song of the day is Drive by R.E.M., it's a classic song (at least to me) slow, a little bit depressive and with an unique sound, like when you are just waiting to something happen and you have this song as background. This is one of those songs that you must hear while you're driving at the highway and going to nowhere.

Song: Drive
Artist: R.E.M.
Album: Automatic For The People

I remember the first time that I watched the video of this song, it was something like strange in those days to me, and since the first moment that I heard it I really really really liked it.

Here's a live performance of this song, enjoy it:
