From collaborations with Daft Punk and Jay-Z to the Motownisms of “Happy” on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, it seems like Pharrell Williams chose 2013 to remind folks of the magic behind his musical touch.

Ain't life Rad?

A fine example of mid-80s motivational soundtrack rock, a staple of the class-conscious underdog sports movies of the era (see also The Karate Kid, Better Off Dead). I have to wonder if “Break the Ice” wasn’t written for a different movie: the story of a young man who spends every afternoon on a frozen over baseball diamond in suburban Toronto practicing extreme moves in his hockey skates.

Daniel Johnston

Here’s a cover of Daniel Johnston’s Devil Town, as performed by Bright Eyes with Nick Zinner. Johnston’s original is a cappella, and repeats a single melody for each verse. Here, the instruments and harmony vocals build up and fade away to give the song a more compelling structure.

ith Halloween coming up next week I thought I would pay homage to one of my (and my 4 year old’s) favorite movies. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a wonderful movie with an INCREDIBLE soundtrack by Danny Elfman. There are many great songs in this movie but I thought “This is Halloween” fit best.

Perry & the Harmonics were a Chicago-based soul-jazz combo who cut just one album for Mercury Records. Cashing in on the mid-sixties craze for anything spy-related, Intrigue With Soul album features jazzy Bond themes and the nicely grooving “Do the Monkey With James.”
