SONG OF THE DAY: Bimbo Jones – “Questions”

Bimbo Jones are sort of a remix factory, churning out successful mix after successful mix. It is sometimes easy to forget they do their own productions as well. With “Questions”, the duo pop out something I was not expecting from them: an engaging and distinctive instrumental track. They sort of hop on a Wolfgang Gartner vibe and funk it up with some of their signature synths. “Questions” is the type of track that will either take off in it’s original form and possibly get vocals recorded for it, or (and this is far more likely in my opinion) someone will take this amazing track and mash it up with some stellar vocals already in existence. Something this fun won’t stay un-adulterated for long! Until then, get prepared to have this track rock you on the floor!

SONG OF THE DAY: Make the Girl Dance – “Kill Me”

The Frenchmen behind “Baby Baby Baby,” return with what seems like a response track. This time sung in English, rather than a song about a girl who wants everything, the vocals are about hedonists spoken over a rocking electro beat. Like the previous single, the video seems to be the main focus. The clip answers the question “What would you do if you only had 8 days left to live?” The hedonistic journey takes them to New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas on a drunken, drug fueled binge full of sex, skating and tattoos. Granted it is not a bad way to end your life (or spend $30,000 dollars), I do wonder if dolls qualify for protection from child abuse. This video (and song) is definitely Not Safe For Work.

SONG OF THE DAY: Make the Girl Dance – “Baby Baby Baby”

Sometimes its all about the video. “Baby Baby Baby” is a good rock tinged electro tinged track which grows in intesity with female spoken French vocals. Though nothing life changing or amazing, its definitely dance radio friendly. I can imagine the video producers thinking, “those Ministry of Sound guys have so much success with those bimbos in bikinis video, but we’re French and we’ll up the ante.” Three beautiful women walk down the streets of Paris a la Lady Godiva save for black bars that flash they lyrics. The logical progression from the BPA “Toe Jam” video, the producers get kudos for hiring women with real curves as opposed to the standard emaciated models we see. Courtney Love never looked so good. The people at Victoria’s Secret obviously agree as “Baby Baby Baby” is being used in their current advertising campaign.
