Phil Collins - the patron saint of divorced dads
'Cause I'm not moving don't worry
Ah you just try and push me out
No, I'm not moving, nowhere.
Ah there's no hurry, I can sit it out
So don't worry turn around, I will still be here
I'M NOT MOVING, OH YOU JUST TRY AND PUSH ME OUT

I love him so much.

I think I like better when he put Stevie as lead vocals on this one

Lol, I was listening to a La Villa Strangiato reaction video and at the "monsters" section I paused and mentioned to my wife who just walked in the room that I sometimes like this composer guy who does reaction videos for prog rock, and she says "that's not prog rock, that's cartoon music" which of course makes me laugh but she's like "no, I'm serious. That's Raymond Scott". :shock: She's right!

Yeah, I'm always surprised that more people don't pick that up listening through that song.

Yeah they didn't license it at the time and got sued. The statute of limitations had run out so the lawsuit wasn't valid, but Rush settled anyway and paid a voluntary 'penance fee' because they thought it was the right thing to do. Apparently Lifeson feels bad about it because he didn't realize it was something from his childhood.

I think I never connected the two because the times in my life when I was listening to Hemispheres and when I discovered Raymond Scott were at least 10 years apart.

So I was listening to my Jazz station on Pandora and a piece came on that I liked that fit into my 'hip-hop/funk-influenced-jazz' concept, so I looked at the name/album/artist.

The band is the Greyboy Allstars, backing band to acid jazz / rare groove artist DJ Greyboy.

So I googled them, and on their website the describe themselves as "Seminal boogaloo revivalists...." I'd only heard the word boogaloo in the context of Breakin' 2 and the Boog Boi (bowel) movement, and teenage lunch had assumed it was just a nonsense rhyme word that sounded cool. So further google/wikipediing revealed to me that 'boogaloo' originally refers to a dance, either Latin 'bugalu' or more commonly a West-Coast/Oakland Funk/R&B/Jazz improvisational dance style from the 60s and early 70s, which morphed during the hip-hop era into 'electric boogaloo' which as one might guess from the movie incorporated some break-dance related poppin' style moves.

I was curious what they looked like (not having seen the film) and so attempted to find examples on the youtubes. There was a lot of noise of either Boog Boi bullshit or Breakin' 2 stuff (I wanted to see the original non-electric version first) and some other random weirdness, but I did come across this, which is basically a guy in India who seems to be incorporating electric boogaloo and hip hop with some Indian musical flavor and the results are kinda amazing in a wow-so-this-exists IDIC/weird-mashup sense.





ETA: I already kinda dug this general kind of subcontinent-meets-hip-hop thing because we had a bunch of Indian and Pakistani immigrant cow orkers at my old company back in the 90s and early aughts, and whenever we had a work retreat/cookout/etc (which we had more of back in the Telecom Bubble days) where there was any DJ and/or sound system they'd inevitably get a hold of it late in the session and play Indo/Pakistani electro dance stuff and it was awesome (or seemed that way after a couple hours of open bar). I especially remember it breaking some post-9/11 tension when it started up and two of the Sikh guys who'd been reluctant/afraid to wear their turbans in the months after the attack for fear of being mistaken for Muslims and getting harassed or possibly just to distance themselves from that shit - I never worked up the nerve to ask - showed up on the dance floor in American flag themed turbans.

Also the seed piece for this whole digression. Kinda somewhere in the Fat Albert / Medeski Martin & Wood region of the spectrum.
