FridayMusicGroup

Well good morning to you all and welcome back to Friday Music.
If you remember I told you a couple weeks ago that we were going to have anther guest DJ for Friday music.
Well, today is the today and sitting at the con is my darling middle daughter Oona.
Im excited to hear what prime cuts of music shell be serving up today and what orbits she'll rotate us on into.
So lets not wait another moment to find out what musical journey she has instore for us all.
Oona, can't tell ya how delighted I am to turn the Mother Ship over to you.
You now have the helm.

Thank you, Dad.
This is Friday Music, my name is Oona and I’ll be your host for our evening in Paris.
For this week‘s Friday Music I find myself uniquely qualified to take you all on a tour de Paris avec moi, sauntering through the streets in the night taking you from one bar to the next featuring all of the music reminiscent of each of my haunts.
And, In order to truly settle into the night, and sometimes for a good night cap, we make our way to Place Vendôme at the Ritz Hotel, Bar Hemingway. Sipping on a Fairy Hibiscus, this is the smoothest entry into our night...
This is “Lady Luna” by Nora Orlandi.


That was Peter Thomas Sound Orchestra with “Natascha”, Serge Gainsbourg with “Baudelaire”, Pinero Piccioni with “Playgirl 70” and Nora Orlandi with Lady Luna at the top of the set.
Onto something a little Grungier, we always make our way to Pigalle in the 9th arrondissement, my favorite area in Paris.
It is there where we find ourselves at a tiki bar dubbed Dirty Dick.
The sounds here are both American and eclectic, much like the drinks.
And when we get tired of drinking Asian Persuasions, we’ll hop across the street to bar Lipstick and smoke cigarettes inside.
You can smell the smoke in this set.
This is Kate Bush with “L’Amour Looks Something Like You”.


That was Hand Habits with “Can’t Calm Down”, Patti Smith with “Kimberly”, Alex G with “Hope”, and Kate Bush with “L’Amour Looks Something Like You” at the top of the set.
At this time, we finally we make our way towards Saint Germain, where ghouls gallop and fools collide.
Nestling in for the night, we find ourselves at my most favorite haunt - Prescription Cocktail Club.
With a bouncer at the front and the most charming bartenders in all of Paris, Prescription is the kind of place that rolls out shots and passes smokes down the bar, as the night draws on and on.
I hope you can taste the egg whites and Saint Germain in this set finished up with a night cap salut.
Here’s Tallisker with “Désir”


That was Brenda Lee with “Emotions”, Mark Ronson featuring Angel Olson with “True Blue”, Françoise Hardy with “J’écoute de la musique saoûle”, and Tallisker with “Désir” at the top of the set.
It’s always hard to say goodbye, but especially at the end of a night out in Paris.
The best and true way to top off the night is with something for the soul.
I’d listen to this song nearly every night, no matter how drunk I was — it was my little lullaby, and now it’s yours.
This is “Elisa”, written and originally performed by the late Serge Gainsbourg.
Here’s Jane Birkin, his muse and lover, live for her 2002 live album, Arabesque.
And remember be safe, be kind, and may all your Friday’s be filled with music.
