In Rotation March 7th 2010

Slick Rick's "Street Talkin' Featuring OutKast is on this week's In Rotation

So light is her footfall – Air: The French duo is back in effect with this song from a few months ago. The video features a femme fatale and her metaphorical panther shadow.

Candy – Paulo Nutini (recorded live at Preservation Hall): A happy song that asks for the most basic pleasure – candy.

Starman – Culture Club: Fantastic. Most people can’t cover Bowie credibly but George O’Dowd does it with soul.

Sidi Ifni – Cracker: David Lowery and Johnny Hickman are quintessential American rockers. This song has been recorded in an exclusive live performance for Passionati that will be on the site next week.

All the Young Dudes – Mott the Hoope: Written by David Bowie, this track is not a happy song about young guys hangin’ out. But if that makes you happy, don’t let this stop you.

Go down swingin’ – John Hiatt: What can I say. Solid music from the heartland. Good for you. Better than grits. Possibly as good as hash browns slathered with ketchup.

Flume – Peter Gabriel: Peter Gabriel covering Bon Iver. Sheer genius. Off an album called Scratch my Back.

Slumdog Millionaire by Toussaint St. Jean, Cyndi Lauper and Wyclef: Guaranteed to get you dancin’.

The Seed – The Roots with Cody Chestnutt: Refered to as “the jammingest rap track ever”, this is really a rock and roll song with Cody Chestnut (who originally recorded it) and a bit of funk and hip hop.

Street Talkin’ – Slick Rick featuring Outkast: “Don’t try to claim things I haven’t earned honest, man, Slick Rick and Outkast is on this jam.”

– Duncan Alney
