#showertune: ‘el pito’ by joe cuba sextet

some latin flavour creeps into the world of #showertune today in the form of El Pito by Joe Cuba Sextet. i first heard this song as part of the awesome soundtrack to the brilliant 1996 Girl Skateboards video Mouse (intro here) directed by Spike Jonze.

if you’ve never seen it and have half an hour to spare you really should peep it – even if you’re not into skateboarding (here it is in its entirety). i probably watched it over a hundred times between 1996 and 1999. it taught me around 72% of what i know about life.


#showertune: ‘hip hop?’ by hocus pocus

beep da da beep beep, incoming #showertune….

….it’s Hip Hop? by Hocus Pocus feat. The Procussions


Hip hop? Les diamants énormes sur les lobes?
Hip hop? Les taspés qu’ont oublié leurs robes?
Hip hop? Les baskets et les casquettes?
Hip hop, j’crois qu’ça se passe plutôt dans la tête…
Hip hop? Les sapes extra extra larges?
(J’ai dit extra extra larges)
Hip hop? Les dollars comme seul objectif?
Hip hop, c’est juste un esprit positif…


#showertune: ‘showdown’ by elo

so now we’re
introducing what we hope will be a longstanding RQT feature.

it’s called #showertune and you can read all about it by following that link ← back there

anyway, without further ado, today’s, innaugural, #showertune is Showdown by ELO

as a general rule i dislike ELO. this exception however proves that rule severly.

i first heard it at the end of Kingpin (which i watched again recently (see ‘eight films…’ below)) but it was welded to my consciousness by means of its place on the soundtrack of Skate 2 – truly a giant among video games (see my review of it here).
