Billie Holiday remixed, and Belfast, and Cocteau Twins…

A couple more… for it be late and sleep not yet happening. So wandering the realms of youtube, coming across a bunch of new things and revisiting some not heard for quite awhile.

Including this gorgeously sad remix of Billie Holiday by Bent:

And this one, featuring a sample from Hildegard von Bingen and a full two minutes of decelerando at the end, which always brings back a certain June night and a field near the town of Glastonbury, Somerset. 150,000 people off their heads in one form or another. Someone I love re-emerging from the shadow of the Wall. The sun slowly suffusing the eastern sky with a billion shades of orange and pink and red.

And since I happened to mention a certain combination of colors… the unspeakably sublime Cocteau Twins…
