To celebrate the start of “that really big sporting event” that Shani mentioned earlier today, we at PostBourgie thought it only appropriate to show y’all that our taste in music occasionally extends beyond our own borders.
And we ain’t talking about Kardinal Offishall. Or Shaggy for that matter. We’re truly talking global, family.
Because, after all, music is the universal language:
1. Fire in Freetown by K’naan (slb)
2. Young Lover by Cocoa Tea (Shani-o)
3. Baby Stardust by Thee Michelle Gun Elephant (Jamelle)
4. No es lo mismo by Alejandro Sanz (R.A.B.)
5. Carolina by Seu Jorge (slb)
6. 7Agaetis Byrjun by Sigur Ros (Shani-o)
7. Makeda by Les Nubians (Alisa)
8. Breakfast by LeLe (Blackink) *possibly NSFW
9. Oceania by Bjork featuring Kelis (slb)
10. Rafiki by Zap Mama (Alisa)
And seriously, we can stop pretending like we enjoy soccer in a couple of weeks. Let’s all just admit the World Cup is a cool way to pass time until real football kicks off in a couple months, and an excuse to break out those extra-medium soccer jerseys we bought on our last trip out of the country.
Also, as usual, feel free to add your own contributions. All of us could probably use a little diversity in our iPods.
Until next week, enjoy the music.
