Wham! Bang! You’re Dead, Man!: Soundtracks of Last-Kiss Goodbye

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”.

Joining the hype: Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. Been interested in Daft Punk since they first came out with that “Around The World” video, and then the Interstella 5555 album.

Domestic Groove: RICHARD OH

All this month, three songs seem to take possession of me: James Morrison’s “In My Dreams” and Jason Mraz’s “The World As I See It” and “I Won’t Give Up”.

:: Playlist, intro, song descriptions, and photos, handpicked and written by Misty herself ::

This playlist is a tribute to people from my old suburban neighborhood, the kind of neighborhood in which the Top 40 music reigned and where I thought the boot-legged albums of Prince were the ultimate score until the people I now call my friends made me listen to their Walkman or borrowed me their tapes.

These friends, my homeys, took me to out of the suburbs and brought me to the city’s obscure churches that turned into dope bass pumping B-Boy Extravaganzas, followed by Bassline parties and numerous accounts of impromptu events and performances. They introduced me to sounds that inexplicably made sense to my head and body. There were these sick beats that made people act like a cursing hustler swinging his gats or a spliff smoking brother admiring the booty and whatever person in between those two. And the rhymes, the brilliant rhymes, made people bob their heads all the way through, in whatever act they’re at.

I was totally sold, wrapped and I never returned.

I cherish my Top 40 music because it landmarks certain episodes of the past. But the music on this list is more than just a categorical device. It’s not just an important reminder of the good days of way back then, but it’s also my important ingredient for having a good time, period. This list is a timeless device and I have my homeys to thank for that.

What I’m trying to capture in this list is the great time we had in discovering one sick beat after another. Like most playlists, it is that trip down memory lane, it is that mini autobiography, and it is the place of giving credit where credit is due. This list isn’t coming from an expert and you won’t find any rare or unknown artist in it, but you’ll hopefully feel the gratefulness I have for the experts who allowed me to have a taste of their expertise in discovering all these amazing beats. I’m bowing down, oh great ones, and I’m forever thirsty and hungry for more of your discoveries.

…Deeply grateful to Rudolf for having me in this exhibition!
