morning babble / Friday 10-27-23
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
Brent. “B” stands for Brent and Babble.
I’m sorry. Sometimes, I remember songs from my youth and just want to hear them again
Morning Babble Intro
Happy Weekend! Music makes smile. That song – “B-Girls” is from 1989 courtesy of the Hip-Hop duo, Young and Restless, not the soap opera (clip) that’s The Young and the Restless which by the way is on Season 51 – little much. Back to “B-Girls” – that song is about girls who specifically target guys who possess items starting with the letter B – I’d be a hot item – that makes “B-Girls” the OG of Gold Digger songs (clip)

I’m ready for the run / ready to set a new personal record / even shaved – like a swimmer – I’m Michael Phelps ready
New Music Friday:
I put together a Spotify playlist of the songs that I talked about and thought about today for New Music Friday. Click here for that!
- Green Day has a new album coming out in 2024 and we don’t have to wait too long into the new year in order to experience this musical joy – January 19th to be exact. Album title is Saviors. One of the very last songs apparently to be created for this new album is experiencing the moment of being the first one let loose unto the world. We get a video and everything – it’s “The American Dream is Killing Me” (clip) by the way . . . they are older – the Green Day boys, but they’re dressed as zombies in the video (clip)
- The Kills have announced their God Games Tour to go along with their new album: God Games which is officially out today – nearly 40 minutes of it all packaged up nicely within 12 songs. The threesome of songs that we’ve already gotten were the singles “New York” / “LA Hex” / “103.” The song being pushed today includes a new video as well, here’s “Wasterpiece” (clip)
- Plain White T’s – remember them? (Delilah drop) they recently announced that a new album is coming out November 17th. 8 albums in and for their 9th – self titled: Plain White T’s. The new song and video out, I quite enjoyed: “Fired Up” (clip)
- I’ve been looking forward to this one – how much so? I already went out and got the vinyl – Black Pumas: Chronicles of a Diamond. When I’m chilling this weekend, it will be in the house library and listening to this album. New song and video that just dropped days ago – it’s a fun song – called “Ice Cream (Pay Phone)”
- Several quick hits of new music: Nicki Minaj has, once again, postponed the release date for her next LP, Pink Friday 2. It was supposed to be out last Friday, then, November 17th, but now, it’s scheduled for December 8th – her birthday. // The Beatles’ final song, with a little help from AI, is out November 2nd aka next Thursday – it’s called “Now and Then” // This one snuck up on me – I totally missed that Gaslight Anthem’s new album: History Books is out today – this is a great band to deep dive on too – go listen to all their old stuff too. In the meantime, the song being pushed today is: “Spider Bites” (clip)
