Monthly Mixtape by John Harouff + Over 10,000 followers!
Funny / Not Funny Record’s Monthly Mixtape installment this month is curated by The Cinnamon Band member John Harouff. In fact, F/NF is currently taking pre-orders on their brand new debut onto vinyl 7” now! Remember everyone who pre-orders will be entered into a contest where one lucky winner will receive a copy of the test pressing for this record with a special black cover highlighted in our previous post. We hope you enjoy his selections!
1. Lay My Love - Brain Eno & John Cale
This song is very special. Mind, body and soul music from a couple of cerebral gentleman.
2. Indian Queens - Nick Lowe
Can’t beat Nick Lowe when it comes to smart-ass, bad-ass neoclassic rock and roll. But this story song is amazingly timeless.
3. Up The Junction - Squeeze
Another story. Very smart, very heartbreaking. It’s a hit.
4. Do Like You - Stevie Wonder
A happier story. This one’ll make you tear up while you boogie.
5. The Morning Fog - Kate Bush
I’ve heard people dis this song as a fluffy copout at the end of the dark side of Hounds of Love. But the song itself is so pretty!
6. Johnny & Mary - Robert Palmer
I aspire to be my generation’s Robert Palmer. Or at least to dress more like him.
7. Dancing on My Own - Robyn
This is a beautiful beautiful song and that’s all there is to it.
8. Uncloudy Day - The Staple Singers
Best singing. Best harmony. Best sound. A great reminder that less can definitely be more. Way more.
The Tumblr love still overflowth
