Grace Buford – Dancing in the Garden of Freedom (Remix by Doxent Zsigmond)

This one brings back good memories 🙂

Those were the times when I went with my friends to a Grace Buford (Cylindrian Rutabaga) live concert in SL. Nothing could beat this. We were promoting Grace’s music and she played our favourite originals. Here is my top favourite, my all-time favourite, remixed by my good friend Doxii. These days, neither Doxii nor Grace nor I frequent SL but we are always happy to catch one of Grace’s rare gigs online.

Dig the stones from the earth
and pile them on the side,
one by one,
Skilfully crafting a wall
to keep the outside on the outside.
Throw away all the the bitter fruit of yesterday
and fertilize the soul with forgiveness
so love can abide in this garden.

And I don’t want to go
from the place I found my soul.
See my freedom dance through the waves of green and gold.

Water the seeds with tears
from the guilt of all those silent years.
How fragile are the first shoots
as they reach for the warmth of the sun
so love will abide in this garden.

Grace Buford – Not Just A Fragment (Remixed by Coll Andrews)

Grace Buford – Not Just A Fragment (Remixed by Coll Andrews)

This project dates back to January 2010.  My idea was to have one of Grace Buford’s new songs remixed, and who would do it better than Coll Andrews?  Coll used a live recording of “Not Just A Fragment”, made a first draft, and I sent it to Grace. It was only 2 weeks later that Grace officially announced she had given up on her solo career and put the recording of her new CD on hold.

It looked as if nobody would get to hear this remix anytime soon 😦

…but Grace were not Grace if she had not allowed it to put this “draft” on our websites, so thanks for this “Happy End”, Grace 😀

Also thanks to Coll for giving me your permission to blog it 😀

I came across another music site (mixtape.me) the other day.  I haven’t  really explored that site yet, and I doubt I’ll have the time to do so in the near future ….but I found a nice POPCORN Remix by Kraftwerk. Follow THIS LINK and double click the song or press PLAY if you want to have a listen yourself. POPCORN was one of my favourite songs when I was a little child and this remix is so much fun 🙂

My own song: Alex Gloworld – Creole Ninja (I Jog)

…not really…but….its title is an anagram of Jenilia Congrejo.

listen on t61: Alex Gloworld – Creole Ninja (I Jog)    

There is a story behind it that you might want to know.  I follow Alex on twitter and vice versa. Last week he linked to a preview (prelisten) of his new song. However, he did not know what title to choose, so meanwhile he named the file “Wootanklingklang”. I protested…. 😛

He uploaded his song to TheSixtyOne the next day… and I LOVE the new title. woot!

Btw, today is Alex’s birthday. Happy Birthday to you, Alex
