Foxy Jolie

I noticed just before on gmail that a friend I was chatting to via google talk had a song listed next to her name. Enquiring further, I was introduced to a very spiffy Firefox addon that enables you to control your music player via buttons on your browser. And it has the further merit of enabling me to tell you in this post what I’m listening to… and this is rather spiffy too, I think, to click on a link which takes me to a web page with all sorts of useful links about the song and the artist – including vids and photos and lyrics and other good stuff – as demonstrated here.

You can install Foxytunes here.

    Um, as just posted to Mark’s Facebook wall, here’s Sage Francis’s song “Got Up This Morning” featuring Jolie (I wonder if this embedding will work!):

    While I think she’s brilliant, I actually find her very hard to listen because her accent actually makes me feel physically ill. I’m not sure why I have such a strong reaction, but there you go. It’s a beoodifol mornung un thuh ghattoooow. Yep.

    I’m assuming it’s the same one you sent me at FB?

    So what do you have to do to be in a music vid lying in bed with Jolie talking about Bukowski?

    Sorry, Peter, we crossed comments there. Thanks for the heads up to the track!

    *tee hee* Yes indeed… Mind you, it took me a while to realise this too, but music videos aren’t real life! (Maybe when FourPlay actually make a music video I’ll revise this opinion…)

    “I actually find her very hard to listen because her accent actually makes me feel physically ill.”

    She is indeed an acquired taste, PH, but I just think her Texan country twang is fantastic. Check out ‘Goodbye California’.
