Jukebox Saturday Night Entry for Nov. 15th, 2014: The 1, 2, & 3 More Times Edition

"Sunday Smile" by Jay Soto from his Mesmerized release (2009)

This is a nice smooth jazz piece.


"Suit & Tie" by Justin Timberlake ft. Jay-Z from the former's release The 20/20 Experience  (2013)

I never thought I'd actually like Justin Timberlake (given what a young punk he was) but I guess I do now.


Speaking of punks ...

... here is something more Saturday night "Old School House" upbeat (since, as you know, I like that sort of stuff) ...

"One More Time" by Daft Punk with vocals by Romanthony from the group's Discovery release (2001)

This was a very popular House song -- specifically, a French House one since Daft Punk is a French duo -- worldwide in the 2000s. As for Romanthony (Anthony Wayne Moore), sadly, he died in May 2013 at age 45 reportedly from complications due to kidney disease. That makes the lyrics and closing clock tower bell chimes more poignant.

The odd anime cartoon video accompanying the song apparently was later -- in 2003 -- incorporated into a Japanese / French anime film Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem about rescuing a kidnapped interstellar music band.


OK, that's all for now. I'll try to update the blog tomorrow morning, although I am supposed to see the movie Interstellar with Quill at the IMAX theatre at the National Air & Space Museum at 2PM. Thus, there is a chance I won't update the blog until Monday night..
