    And I'm listening to the bonus disc of King of America RIGHT NOW!

    I was listening to the main disc yesterday - how's that, huh? First time for ages - I'd forgotten what a truly wonderful long player that is:

    Hey, why stop when you're on a roll.

    For what might be considered obvious reasons, I love this track to bits. The video is 'interesting' however. Someone is posting King of America tunes on YouTube with random Black & White movies. Anyone know what this slightly risqué French offering is? Not that I'd be interested or anything. Just asking.

    "Where you can't keep you mind off/ the crimes of Paris..."

    And here's my other favourite, with another unidentified movie.

    which reminds me of an oblique reference to the point where a dyslexic Ladyhawke meets Jean Paul Belmondo (and at the risk of Godwinning the thread...)
    Is Paris Burning?

  • Russell Brown,

    Finally I find a download of this:

    Eric B.and Rakim – I Ain’t No Joke (COPYCAT’S Slight Re-edit)

    Australian DJ Copycat is turning out some super funk and hip hop edits on Soundcloud, but you have to be in the first 100 punters in the world to get the MP3 each time.

    Who would have thought that bringing together greasy german metallers with a tweeny pop princess could be so good.

    Wait, that didn't sound right....

    Then whatever you do, don't browse the rest of the bootiemashup site, smooshing together things that should be so wrong, and making them work is their raison d' etre.
