The Four Passions, Sept 24, 2012

The Four Passions, Sept 23, 2012 This set got a little sadder, probably I hadn't seen Leela in a few weeks, and of course, Rosalie in almost a year. Some story songs led us off: Lou Reed's Street Hassle and then a Turkish torch song which must be sad, by Sezen Aksu, my new favorite. I had never found a compatible groove with her, but I'm starting to catch on .

Then we played some Turkish film music, certainly with a story, this one a little silly, from the clip below.
Link here to the Turkish Film Music site Leela and I frequent.

Then more from the Amazing, Sleepy, Sludgy, Dreamy, Drifty Ethiopian Jazz Musician Getachew Mekurya, catch more of that one here.

Two songs by Ron Rege + Lavender Diamond, then some Carter Family, below (They might not be on the playlist cause I forgot them, but they were before or after Karen Dalton.)

I can't remember what else I played. Half the time I'm just barely holding on. I call this Music To Stay Alive By.
