American Woman- The Guess Who

This is the original (though NOT the album version). The Lenny Kravitz version is a cover.

Fun fact about The Guess Who— they’re actually a Canadian band. Chew on that for a bit…

P.S. If you want to know more about the song & its covers, click on the title (it links to the Wikipedia page about it)…

My 4th of July/Independence Day blogging wouldn’t be complete without Jimi’s version of our national anthem. If the audio is a bit fuzzy, sorry about that but it’s not my fault. Clearly reblogged it from elsewhere…

I have no idea if she bought it like that, had it made for her or made it herself. I just know that I like it.

Demo of Beat It composed using only Michael Jackson’s voice

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

Congrats, babe. I feel famous by proxy now.

The side of Michael Jackson they don’t show you: his ACTUAL RACE.

On 6th February 1984, after winning an unprecedented number of AMA awards Michael spoke to black publication JET magazine about people in his life he was thankful for; Stevie Wonder, who expresses pride of race in his music.

“That’s why I love Stevie Wonder’s album called Songs in The Key of Life… He had a song called Black Man and I just jumped up screaming when I heard that record because he’s showing the world what the Black man has done and what other races have done… He named it Black Man and all these people who have got the album sing it. And that’s the best way to bring about the truth.”

Fun fact: I wrote a paper on Michael Jackson last year. A lot of people don’t know that his DNA was actually traced all the way back to Ghana where we is part of a royal dynasty.

Yes, because of that he was crowned Prince Mikaeel Amalaman Anoh II Of the Ivory Coast Kingdom Krinjabo & Agni Empire (that’s his full royal name).

Michael Jackson - That Forward Lean…
The trick to this is to have nails planted on the floor and special shoes (patented shoes, btw) with a nail-shaped hole in them so you can slide the nail into that hole in your shoe. Then you can lean forward with no problem.
Knowing this previously would have saved me from all that faceplanting I did as a child trying to replicate this move, nearly breaking my ankles in the process…

Audrey Kitching’s New (2011) Apartment Tour With Buzznet - Part 1

I posted this before directly from Buzznet, but it got taken down on Buzznet for some reason (or the video was somehow broken).

I wouldn’t decorate my place the exact same way, but I would be as liberal & unconventional about decorating as she seems to be. I’ve always loved that about her places… anyway, enjoy this video. Posting part 2 shortly…
