YUM YUM Folk Mixtape “Sweet Serenade Vol 2” compiled and a little bit mixed by chrome

“Give you the heavens and the sunshine” this is what this mix is about, steppin away from the beat driven music to give some music i listen to when hanging in my yellow hamock.

After the huge success which my first mix represented by being heard simply everywhere i went, i did another one – actually i am planning on doing a whole series (have 6 covers already finished and mix 3 is in the pipeline). Enjoy this one – especially in these quiet days. So have fun and let the hamock sway.

MJ is dead, and we all have outed ourselves as MJ fans all over the world. It had and probably still has all the news media on lock – through and through. Just check the webs, facebook and twitter. We all remember growing up to his tunes, whether it was the Jackson 5, Disco Mike, the Thriller era, the Bad era or even the 90ies MJ. While people are mourning his death all over the world i think they should rather be reminded not of their own mortality but of the many good music he has given and be thankful for that. Instead it just shows how everybody is trying to make profit of his death and how we, in western culture, are completely uncapable of coping wih death in general. We run from it all our life and we fear it, and when bigger than life images die or disappear – that goes for persons, countries or any other accepted public concept/image – we lose some sense of self, or see our image of ourself threatened and start mourning. That shows how much we let ourselves be defined and manipulated by outside influences. We are not merely the sum of accumulated memories and experiences. Where is the divine?

MJ has given us some good memories, but they are all memories and they are dead the moment they pass us, so we should drop them instantly, while enjoying life and maybe hearing some of his great music in our mind. Enjoy

“Holiday” Jack Johnson & G. Love

This has been my ringtone for almost 2 years. Love this live version that was recorded in New Zealand back in ???. Enjoy. And Jack kinda raps at the very end. I don’t mind anyone calling me anymore, when the ringtone is allready so relaxed  – makes you think of Hamaks and heavy couching.
