O is for Frank Ocean


Never having developed a taste for R&B, I find “Pink + White” extraordinary. Rock and roll at its most cliché is about drugs, sex, and rock and roll. Frank Ocean’s “Pink + White” turns this inside out and back again, lamenting lost love and drug addiction in a most wrenchingly soulful manner. If you're interested, there is a great article at Bustle.com:

For fun after that heavy blurb, let’s hear from my little creation Otter Parade. This young quintet aspires to follow in the footsteps of the Violent Femmes. I really adore “Blister in the Sun”.

  2. Yep...not into R&B. I am pretty limited on my music. I like country but I love the oldies best of all. Great pics for your O though....which reminds me I need to go post my O....

  4. Blister in Sun is brilliant! I'm enjoying my daily dose of music I'm unfamiliar with.

    1. So glad you like it, Keith! The song featured in a great movie called "Gross Point Blank" several years ago. I had to buy the soundtrack. ~grin~ Happy Blogging!

  8. Oh, groan, "Blister in the Sun"... Not a fan. I think I've heard it too many times. Totally burned out on it.

    1. I understand. I'm glad I used it, though, as Keith across the pond never heard the tune. ~grin~ Be well!

    1. I'm surprised at myself for writing without music today. ~grin~ Do you like the new, often pop sounding country music or do you prefer old school? Myself, I prefer Johnny Cash. Happy Blogging!
