12 Days Of Christmas – 1st January

Optimash Prime sporting the Winter Collection

Happy New Year!

I hope last night was wonderful. The day of feeling sorry for yourself will have been well and truly worth it, I’m sure. I’ve been umming and ahhing over what song to put up today. There were a couple of contenders but I think the name of the artist and song make this the winner. The other song I was thinking about will go up tomorrow when the hangover really kicks in. Dizzy Gillespie is a one-of-a-kind artist. A virtuoso trumpet player and one of the founding father of what we now consider Jazz, he definitely gets a shout out. Enjoy this one.

Dizzy Gillespie – Stay On It
Get the song here. Buy some more Dizzy here.


And seeing as it’s the new year, why not have a bonus song? This is a little shout-out to my muse, my flame, who came up the idea of doing a 12 Days of Christmas thing. So Jen, here’s one for you…

It is a classic from R Kelly’s fourth studio album; it got on to Pitchfork’s top 500 songs of the 2000’s and it’s also on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. So the least we can do it make you listen to it again. If you don’t have it (which I doubt) then feel free to download it here, and if you like it loads then go and buy the album Chocolate Factory here.

R Kelly – Ignition (Remix)
