Wham! Bang! You’re Dead, Man!

Today is the 1st anniversary of BlokRokinBeats. Each and every person who participated/doing exhibition before, was asked to pick one song with special theme: a track that they would use for their funeral, soundtrack of their last-kiss goodbye, song to overdose to, farewell-and-wish-you-well (or hell), a solid calibre of “danse macabre”.

Look at what they—and me, too—chose:

01. Rollin’ Over – The Small Faces [as chosen by David Tarigan]

  1. Congrats Dethu!! Hoping this isn’t the last-kiss goodbye from BRB?
    The Block Rockin’ Beats series has become one of my reference guide’s to “new music” (usually old music, written and released before my time, hihhi 🙂 So, thanks for spreading the art, and cock-melting (whoa!) the digital airwaves.

    FYI: the streaming works fine on my computer.

  2. Hey Lakota, thanks for the support. And no, this isn’t the last episode of BlokRokinBeats. I just used a different theme so it didn’t become cliché: hip-hooray kinda anniversary. This farewell theme is pretty much like Smashing Pumpkins’ “The End Is the Beginning Is the End”. Hell no, this radio show is still going, it gets even stronger. The streaming is still on trial so it’s good to know that there was no problem. Will inform the radio technician about it.

    I will upload the full story & complete description of “Wham! Bang! You’re Dead, Man!” today. Lotsa interesting perspectives about life & death. Stick around.

    Cheers -RD
