I can't really suggest you listen to this song, but Where's Your Head At was popular all over the world for awhile. I had this caught in a crack in my brain several times the last month or so, and finally had to find out who it was. It's an English electronic music duo called Basement Jaxx. They won the Billboard Music Awards Top Hot Dance Club Play Artist - Duo/Group in 2000, and about 10 other awards, but I never heard of them other than this one song.

It's based on samples from Gary Numan's songs M.E. from the 1979 album The Pleasure Principle (Number 1 album in the United Kingdom), and This Wreckage from the 1980 album Telekon (his third consecutive Number 1 album). The instruments on The Pleasure Principle were mostly just a few synthesizers, bass, viola and drums. Telekon kept the synthesizers, bass, viola and drums, but added about 10 more synthesizers, mostly analog. There was also a guitar on Telekon and a piano on both albums, but the synth/bass/viola/drum combo gives both albums a sound unlike any other new wave/synth-pop/electronica band, or anyone really. The lower notes on a viola makes it sound a lot bigger than a violin, closer to a cello than violin to me. I didn't know what instrument was until I looked at the album labels way back when.

In the song This Wreckage, Gary Numan is singing something I didn't understand, probably for 35 years, but finally found out one day was Japanese. No wonder I couldn't make out what he was saying, I don't speak Japanese. Most of the online lyrics for the song say, (Japanese phrase - means "Goodbye, forever"). But Genius Lyrics says 別れよう which is "wakareru". It means to part (usu. of people), to part from, to part with, to be apart from, to separate (of a couple), to break up, to divorce, to lose (e.g. one's mother), to be bereaved, and another spelling and more meanings. Some places just said it means to split. I liked some of Gary Numan's music, never his voice. But at the age of 63 his voice doesn't sound as bad, like on the album Intruder that's coming out next month.

In the late 1970s, Gary Numan began developing his style. According to him, this was an unintentional result of acne; before an appearance on Top of the Pops, "I had spots everywhere, so they slapped about half an inch of white make-up on me before I'd even walked in the door. And my eyes were like pissholes in the snow, so they put black on there. My so-called image fell into place an hour before going on the show." His "wooden" stage presence was, in his words, a result of extreme self-consciousness and lack of "showmanship" and often referred to as being "like an android". I guess he finally got over that, that but Asperger's syndrome is still  kicking his asp. His 11 year old daughter Persia contributed vocals to his song My Name Is Ruin from his 2017 album Savage (Songs from a Broken World), and appeared in the video. It sounds like he reused some of the music from it in Saints and Liars.

Completely out of the blue the Weird Al song Buy Me a Condo came to mind a few nights ago. It's off his album "Weird Al" Yankovic in 3-D which came out 38 years ago today, February 28, 1984. It was his second album.

I was looking at a site a couple days ago that had among other things patches, hats and stuff and a lot of it was for Vietnam veterans. There seemed to be especially a lot for the 25th Infantry Division, whose shoulder sleeve insignia someone nicknamed the electric chili pepper. I wanted to see if I could find out more about the nickname and when I searched online I instead found this guy playing Red Hot Chili Peppers songs on his bass with a red hot chili pepper. 8)

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
-William Pitt, British Prime-Minister (1759-1806)
