This Song Is So Much Fun

James
LavelleI’ve been pretty head down lately with work. But I just had to take a short break to blog this sweet funky song. The refrain is too catchy. You can click on the image to the right to sample the CD at Amazon.

I hope to see you soon\ In La La Land.\ Something about those little pills\ unreal\ the thrills\ they yield\ until they kill a million brain cells.

I have a feeling he’s not singing about a particular physical location, but “La La Land” is a common term for Los Angeles. Breathing the air here will have the same effect as the little pills he mentions.

Disclaimer This blog in no way promotes nor condones drug use. It promotes interesting music. Just assume the lyrics are discussing aspirin. Very potent aspirin.

    Check out any of the remixes or the original for Green Velvet - Flash, especially the Timo Maas mix.

    I'm glad there's others (Americans) out that like James Lavelle....



    It makes me happy that you're a programmer too! :)



    Have you heard of U.N.K.L.E.?

    James Lavelle absolutely rocks...as far as U.N.K.L.E goes, a fav as well and on most Lavelle mixes as he's one of the frontmen. I highly recommend his latest GU release, some great choons there! Nick Warren is in town here tomorrow night, he's in my top 5!

    Ah yeah, I love Nick Warren's stuff. The beats just drive the music forward at a heart pulsing tempo.

    I'm sure it's better if you think about something harder than aspirin

    This song is not talking about the Lost Angeles. It is about an event caled Mystery Land in Netherlands. Cuz this song is offical song of this event. La la land is referd to the Mystery land.

    I also think that "La La Land” is not a common term for Los Angeles how B-a-M described this before.

    I also think so. I like Green Velvet and this song is perfect for an after party to chill out.
