It’s Daffodil Time Again With Your DJ Billy Beyond

You may download a folder of these tracks directly from me HERE.

DAFFODIL TIME – With Your DJ Billy Beyond

Enjoy an hour of music from the late’20s/early ’30s most of which was recorded in the ’70s. There are quite a few original 78’s in there but when Nelson Riddle recreated the ’20s for The Great Gatsby in 1974 it sounded amazing – not necessarily authentic but clearer and with more dynamics and in stereo! Hellereo! Happy Spring to the right coasters and most of you fly overs. I love this musical vibe in the Springtime. You might too. You may also hate it. Listen and find out.

 

Streaming Now – Hits of Then

The Early 1900’s Music Preservation Group is streaming their own 24 hour radio- It’s great if you like 78’s, are 78 or don’t want to keep waiting for the release of the new MAC iVictrola. iLove yesteryear. Always have. Did then, do now. They call it” Radio Dismuke.” I call it Radio John Dowd. – It’s a great soundtrack for a summer studio.

More moldy musical masterpieces are coming in a moment! My recently refreshed collection of music from the late ’20s / early ’30s is just about finished. “Daffodil Time” is twenty years old this Spring and sounds just as old as it ever did. Listening to too much of this type of music may induce a state of temporary “nutz.” Be warned and know your limits. – – – – Have you ever tried typing in time to the music pretending that your finger tips are tap shoes or am I the only one that does that? Try it. It’s pretty easy. I’m doing it now. Turn Typing into Tapping! Oooh! CAPS LOCK ball change….

Can someone please call the psych ward for me? I might need another bit of “rest.”

Jazzy Squirrels with Beauty And The Bees

They call themselves The Nutty Squirrels but they are actually very jazzy.

Just a little rodent jam to start the week – but then let’s here from the insects’ side…

Uh Oh! Part 1 – The Nutty Squirrels

Beauty and the Bees – from It’s Tough To Be A Bug!

You Can Catch The Brass Ring Right Here!

I have a little present for you so cheer up. I’m giving you a flawlessly ripped and mastered digital version of an album by The Brass Ring – Love Theme From Flight Of The Phoenix (I know, longer title please.) This record is a state of mind and it’s an excited state, so please, if you are on any kind of uppers or crystal meth or six cups of coffee please BE CAREFUL. Peppy is not the word. Personally I love this album. It gets the house clean if you know what I mean. Musically The Brass Ring were the real deal. Some referred to them as an East Coast Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass. Mmm….maybe. The recordings are top notch – This was ripped from a sealed copy and the label is Dunhill Records (class) and the pressing is deep. There is NO REMASTERING on these recordings. Get into it – this is from the needle to the numbers. I just made that up. You can read all about TBR on Wikipedia but nobody is going to do that except me ad Douglas Demille and he’s dead. So it’s time to upgrade your lounge collection, peeps. Get this into your iTunes and blast the bitch. There is so much to listen to on this one, things waaaaay in the back somewhere, things over on the right, things that make you ask – what the hell even was that? You’ll see, but don’t try blaming me later if you have a seizure or just can’t ever get enough of THE BRASS RING because there is no cure for the TBR addiction. I should know, I have been listening to TBR for about 23 years, five months, six days and, what time is it? – Time to play THE BRASS RING AGAIN!!! YAY!!!

DOWNLOAD THE ALBUM HERE

This is a personal link so no funny business like your flash player is out of date or that type of bullshit. Tell your friends! There’s plenty of TBR for everyone here at Billy Beyond Dot Com. If I can just suggest one thing to you though, stereo separation is important to the experiencing of this record’s fine fidelity. Stop looking at me that way. It’s true. Somany bullshit bluetooth (compressed even more) speakers are sadly mono. Nobody wants mono, do you? Stick to two speakers with a space between them and you’ll be glad you did. What we are talking about is dimension is sound. It’s a must. (Did I just ruin it for your new bluetooth speaker? – well, Sorry! You can take it back if you used Amex. Byeeeeee)

Timebomb (Peter Rauhofer Remix) – Kylie Minogue

I think this one is still so sadly relevant. Do you hear that “ticking ” sound? I hear it when I read the news. It’s so annoying.
We’re on a timebomb,
It may not last long,
So let’s just do it right now, come on.
😕

Sometimes shallow appearing puddles can be VERY DEEP.

I watch CNN, I cry a little inside, then I dance ’til it all goes away.

(come on come on come on come on)
Fast, time is ticking oh so fast,
Fast, time is ticking oh so fast,
Fast, time is ticking oh so fast,
The sound is running quick right through our hands,
Beat, feel the rhythm in my heartbeat,
Why don’t you move your body to my body,
Before we disappear?
Do you wanna wanna?
I wanna wanna dance like it was the last dance in my life,
I wanna,
wanna, wanna, wanna,
Do you wanna, wanna dance like it was the last dance?
We’re on a timebomb, it might not last long,
So let’s just do it right now do it come on,
We’re on a timebomb, before the night’s gone,
Let’s just do it right now, do it come on.
Wait,
No please don’t makes me wait,
When walls are shaking ground feels like a might break,
It’s not the end of the world,
It’s just the start of me and you,
So let’s just take the moment,
Boy, let’s go!
Tell me now,
We’re on a timebomb, it might not last long,
So let’s just do it right now do it, come on,
We’re on a timebomb, before the night’s gone,
Let’s just do it right now, do it come on.
Do you wanna wanna?
I wanna wanna dance like it was the last dance in my life,
I wanna,
wanna, wanna, wanna,
Do you wanna, wanna dance like it was the last dance?

We’re on a timebomb, it might not last long,
So let’s just do it right now do it, come on,
We’re on a timebomb, before the night’s gone,
Let’s just do it right now, do it come on.

Come on (repeat until you can’t anynore)
The End.
There. Now don’t you feel better?

My Favorite Barbarella

No contest. Ferrante and Teicher all the way. That opening is supreme gigantic glamor.

Tinkley and bubbling. It’s OK to dance, go ahead and move a little. Let yourself go….

Always Three Piece Down – High Steppin’, Hip Dressin’ Fella – Love Unlimited

High stepper, clean dresser
High stepper, clean dresser

High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together
High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together

High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together
High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together

There’s a guy in the neighborhood
And, oh Lord, if I could
I’d wrap him up and take him home

His machine is always clean
Whenever he’s on the scene
And there’s always a crowd around

Girls watch him like a hawk
Ah-watchin’ his body talk
Oh Lord, they love for him to get down, ooh

Oh, if I could find a way to tell him
I’m what he really needs
Oh, but they say you’re not a lady

If you feel that you

really need someone who

that makes you feel like, ooh
I don’t know what I shall I do?

He’s a high steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together
High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together

He’s always so polite
And never seems uptight
He’s the kind of a man a woman wants around

Hair cut close and neat
Decked down to his feet
And he’s always 3-piece down

I’ve got to find a way to tell him
I’m really all he needs
They say you’ve got to be a lady

You’ve got to play along
You can’t come on strong
I don’t care if it’s wrong
I just want to get it on! (with a)

High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You really got it together
High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You really got it together

An Invitation From Cynthia Powell, President

We are big believers in the power of arts and culture to support radical agendas and foster social justice. In recognizing such power, this summer we are launching Queer Power, an annual commission that supports socially committed artists whose work fosters social justice.

This inaugural commission, opening in June 2017, will feature the work of the Silence=Death Collective, adapting the famous poster used by Act Up during the AIDS Pandemic. The collective will reorganize the iconic elements of the poster and contextualize the message with language that addresses the contemporary civil rights issues faced by LGBTQ community.

Join us on June 8th for our Summer Benefit to honor the Silence=Death Collective and support the Museum.

Buy your tickets today

Kindest regards

Cynthia Powell
President, Board of Directors

The Three Degrees – Starlight

Well, for openers…this song sends me right off the launching pad into some kind of third degree heaven. “You’re my never ending breath of mystic light?” Lyrics, people. I know the hair is major and the styles are so right on, but get into the words if you can.
