Tine Beltaine

Not exactly Thanksgiving Music…

“Tine Beltaine” by Omnia from Pagan Folk which came out in 2006.


Body Language

Booka Shade is a German House band consisting of Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier. They originally formed under the name Planet Claire (after the B-52’s Song), but they made their name with Booka Shade, and their single “Body Language,” which was released in 2005.

This is “Body Language (Interpretation)” from their 2006 album, Movements. It takes about 40 seconds for the song to get moving. Give it a chance.

There are several versions of this song, at least one of which wound up in a video game, and it has been sampled by other artists. The “original version” is probably “Body Language.” by M.A.N.D.Y. VS Booka Shade, which is a bit more dance oriented than this mix.

All Roads Lead Home

I have noticed a trend in recent years that television shows are trying to up their game when it comes to music. Not like in the movies, with custom scores, but by using interesting – if not exactly popular – songs. This song I found via the Canadian TV show Flashpoint. It is quite good if you like cop shows. Unfortunately, the band, Golden State, seems to have gone inactive. The last entry on their Facebook page is from November of last year, and there are no scheduled tour dates. Too bad.

This is “All Roads Lead Home” by Golden State, which was released as a single in 2011. It’s been used in a couple of TV shows.

Cello Fury

Cello Fury is one of the ensembles that is sort-of changing the way people look at the instruments usually associated with classical music.

This is “Revolution: III. Victorious” from their 2nd album Symphony of Shadows, which was released in 2013. Their 3rd album was supposed to be released this year, but now it looks as if that isn’t happening.
