Everything Everything - MY KZ UR BF (screenshot from the Official Video)

Ohrwurm: Everything Everything – MY KZ, UR BF

It’s almost as if the syncopated rhythm and falsetto delivery of Everything Everything – MY KZ, UR BF creates a direct connection to the Ohrwurm section of my brain. MY KZ, UR BF is the opening track from Everything Everything’s debut album, Man Alive and I can guarantee that if I listen to it, I’ll […]

Ohrwurm: Lykke Li – I Follow Rivers

Lykke Li is a Swedish singer-writer whose albums Youth Novels and Wounded Rhymes are chock-a-block with catchy pop/electronica. Lykke Li – I Follow Rivers [vimeo […]

The 2 part documentary, The Rise And Fall Of The Berlin Wall, from the History Channel, tells the story of the Anti Fascist Protection Rampart, more commonly known as The Berlin Wall, erected on 13 August 1961, which fell on 9 November 1989.
