Alright, kids, it's that time again! Here are my music picks for August, 2006 (in no particular order):
Strict Machine [Album Version or Calderone Club Mix] by Goldfrapp - I nabbed this one when it first came out, but have to admit that hearing it on television adverts made me fall in love all over again. (I prefer the "Nip/Tuck" commercial over the Verizon one.)
Still Dirty by Christina Aguilera - I found most of the material on her new, two-disc set a yawn, and even though this track sounds a bit' left-over from her last album, it's a great track.
Love Sensation [Freemasons Club Mix] by Lolleata Holloway - this track is still the ultimate jam, after all these years.
Bossy [The Scumfrog Club Mix] by Kelis & Stars R Blind [The Scumfrog Extreme Make-Over Mix] by Paris Hilton - these two Scumfrog remixes rock... a huge improvement on the original(s).
Miss You [Jacques Lu Cont Remix] by Mirwais - Stuart Price (a.k.a. Jacques Lu Cont, Les Rythmes Digitales, Thin White Duke, Paper Faces, et. al.) can do no wrong in my book. Seriously.
I'm With Stupid [PSB Maxi Mix] by the Pet Shop Boys - one of the few pop artists from the 80s still growing, still keeping things interesting.
Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley - Pure genius. Period. (Loved it in "The West Wing," too.)
Not Ready To Make Nice by The Dixie Chicks - I absolutely love this song, and play it almost every day.
