A couple of really cool versions of horrible songs. Horrible like “Poker Face,” by Lady (Ultimate) GaGa and “Toxic,” by Brittany Spears. So, how did they turn really awesome. How about a full talented orchestra and a Jazz Trio. Well, now I can say I enjoy the songs (just not the versions everyone thinks of).

Today’s lyric of the day is from a Sweedish folk singer of Argentinian descent. Wow that is a moutful of interesting combinations. But, music is music and he is fantastic. His soft vocals mixed with a melodic acoustic guitar make him something special. Not to mention, he also is a pretty solid lyricist. “Down the Line,” comes off of his second album In Our Nature. Interesting song and album. Here are some lyrics:
“ I see problems down the line
I know that I’m right
I see darkness down the line
I know its hard to fight.
There was a dirt upon your hands
doing the same mistake twice
making the same mistake twice.”
- “Down the Line,” by Jose Gonzalez off of Down the Line
