I’m so happy this exists I can’t even tell you. A detailed index of 1980’s saxaphone solos, with commentary.
“i find this quite interesting. hundreds of tracks, dozens of djs, a number of clubs and events, in effect an entire subculture based on this one drum break; i mean, based on 6 seconds from 1969.”
take a few minutes (20, but it’s worth it) to unpack the world around a piece of your world that you didn’t even know was there. and, incidentally, get an excellent, well articulated primer on the thought behind the creative commons movement: the amen break. (via twirk ethic)
The lyrics. The lipsync. The synth solo. The movie. This is the essence of all that was good about being a kid in the 80s.
Folks, the sale is over. I’ve divested myself of the entire collection.
you’ll thank me after you watch this.
dear god this is awesome: come on feel the illinoise acapella.
i strongly recommend you check out more of this group’s covers on their site.
