Moneybrother - Born Under a Bad Sign

Making a super smooth transition from French to Swedish, today we’re looking at an awesome little band known as Moneybrother. At the risk of being redundant, I will again mention that I discovered this song in a soundtrack for a movie - in this case, “Super” (which has become one of my all-time favorites, by the way). Back then I was too obsessed with another song I might feature in here someday to notice just how incredible this band was. But in came up on my music player yesterday and I fell in love.

I don’t know exactly what it is, could it possibly be the catchy beat, the charming vocals of the leading man, the fact that I can’t for the life of me figure out what the hell they trying to say? I don’t know, could be any of those things, and it doesn’t matter. What’s important is that I have a new tune to mumble incoherently to and yell out the only lyric from the chorus I know.

I’M BORN UNDER A BADLY DUSTED SIGN!!! (probably).

Malajube - Ton Plat Favori

Grab your monocles, we're going to be fancy today, folks! We're diving into the depths of European rock music, and as we all know, nothing's more European than France (BP is going to kill me for saying that, even as a joke). Today's song is from the soundtrack of a great Canadian indie movie known as "The Trotsky" - a wonderful little comedy that I heatedly recommend to everyone. The song itself is relatively short but full of energy and humor. Just a couple of lines from the chorus bring a smile to my face:

Non! T'as pas fini ton assiette
Mais tu manges encore
Tu manges mon coeur!

No! You haven't finished your meal
But you're eating again
You're eating my heart!

Those are honestly among my favorite lyrics in a song. Maybe it's just because it's French, maybe it's because it involves cannibalism, but it just warms my heart. I don't know about you guys, but I'm definitely putting this song on my pretentious party playlist.
