Sorry, no English subtitles yet for this video featuring Brays Efe, a Spanish actor known for his role in the Netflix comedy series Paquita Salas, and Inés de León, a Spanish director, scriptwriter, actress and publicist. They are in a car on their way to the Desigual Spring 2019 fashion show in Madrid. They are discussing what is authentic today: Is there too much posing? Have Instagram filters clouded our view? Inés de León (@inesdeleon) and Brays Efe (@braysefe) tell it like it is. They are both wearing Desigual Spring 2019.

Beyoncé posted this photo on Instagram this week. She’s standing in front of a painting by my good friend Gary Lang, a California painter. Gary and I attended art school together in the 1960s at Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, which became CalArts. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Today’s music video is Beyoncé and Jay Z, shot in the Louvre:

Elton John, now 71, will be playing three concerts in Vancouver in September in what is being billed as his Final Tour (Bill Wyman calls it the “final Farewell-Good-bye-I’m-Retiring-I-Really-Mean-It Tour.” Here was John’s first hit from 1970:

John is married to Canadian David Furnish – they met in London in 2005 when Furnish was working at an ad agency. They entered into a civil partnership in 2005 and in 2014, when England legalized same-sex marriage, they officially wed and now have two sons. In 2005, one of John’s early mentors and former roommates, legendary British blues rocker Long John Baldry died in Vancouver, where he had lived for 25 years. Elton, who was Reginald Dwight when he  played keyboards with Baldry’s band Bluesology in the 1960s, credited Baldry for convincing John (they were both gay), at the last minute, not to marry a woman in the 1970s. John wrote this song about how Baldry saved him that night:

This movie did a beautiful integration of an Elton John song:

  Almost Famous was written by Cameron Crowe. It’s an autobiographical account of his early years, being a 15-year-old music critic writing for Rolling Stone magazine and touring in 1973 with bands such as the Allman Brothers – called Stillwater in the movie. The movie clip ends with his college-professor mother Elaine, played by Frances McDormand, telling her class: “Rock stars have kidnapped my son.” Crowe’s mentor in the movie is music critic Lester Bangs, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. They have a phone conversation about how uncool they are – “not like good-looking people,” Bangs explains.

Today’s music is Aloe Blacc singing I Need A Dollar. He might be best known for his vocals on the late Avicci’s massive hit Wake Me Up.

Like horns? This is a Seattle band, the True Loves (you’ll recognize the drummer and guitarist from another Seattle band, D-Lo 3, aka the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio).

And lastly, here’s a video by Canadian band Walk Off The Earth, who lost a band member this week: Mike Taylor, known as the mysterious Beard Man, died in his sleep last month, of natural causes He was also father of two teenagers, a hockey coach and business owner. He was only 51. This is the band’s tribute to him:

This is how the band became famous, but tried a reprise without Beard Man, replaced by the incredibly talented Scott Helman; Sarah Blackwood (the blonde) was 8 months pregnant & went into labour during the filming of this video:

The band had this instrument built for this video, Girls Like You; Beard Man shines briefly, but is a magnetic presence:

Since this is Boxing Day, here’s Simon & Garfunkel singing a live version of The Boxer:

I met David Lindley when he was playing the Town Pump in Gastown some years ago. He sang Ain’t No Way Baby and I thought he had created a whole new genre, but I wasn’t sure what it was. I did know what it wasn’t:

He used to play slide guitar and sing falsetto with Jackson Browne:

I asked the gurl what she wanted to be / She said baby can’t you see / I wanna be famous, as far as the screen / But you can do something in between (chorus) Baby you can drive my car / If I’m gonna be a star….

Sigala: Gimme Your Love:

When I first heard this tune on the radio, Girls Like You, I thought it was a Cardi B song, since she does a rap @2:58 (she also co-wrote the song). I didn’t realize the male voice was Adam Levine of Maroon 5. The video features a disappearing act of women (Adam also disappears at 3:27). In order of appearance:  Camila Cabello, Phoebe Robinson, Aly Raisman, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Lilly Singh, Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, Trace Lysette, Tiffany Haddish, Angy Rivera, Franchesca Ramsey, Millie Bobby Brown, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Chloe Kim, Alex Morgan, Mary J. Blige, Beanie Feldstein, Jackie Fielder, Danica Patrick, Ilhan Omar, Elizabeth Banks, Ashley Graham, and Rita Ora. It ends with Levine joined by his wife, South African model Behati Prinsloo (who was featured years ago in a Desigual video shot on the salt flats of Argentina) & their daughter Dusty:

Chromeo, my fave Canadian Jew-Arab funk duo from Montreal, has a new video:

And here’s a song, Broken, that hit No. 1 on alternative radio and now just hit No. 1 on Top 40. By Los Angeles trio loveleytheband. The song’s message is “It’s okay to not be okay.” The opening keyboard notes sound like a five-year-old. Maybe that’s the appeal:

Lead singer-songwriter Mitchy Collins said in a recent interview that he deals with “pretty bad depression” at times. But the band is currently riding a wave of success. (Depression is very treatable – talk to your friends, your family, support group or contact your doctor.) Here’s the Kids Help Line: 1-800-668-6868.

I love dance videos. I also love Jackie Wilson.This video that melds the two:

And in 1956, Frankie Lymon wrote and performed this song, when rock n roll was new:

Three years later, in 1959, The Clovers sang Love Potion No. 9, and Doo Wop exploded:

Nine years later, this happened:

The amazing part about this song, All Along the Watchtower, was that Jimi recorded this  two months after Bob Dylan released his pastoral version on the album John Wesley Harding. Bob’s version was rather sedate compared to Jimi’s version. After Jimi died, Bob said, he always sang Jimi’s version. If you want to know the gentle soul that Jimi was, watch this rare acoustic version of…There are a thousand ways to play this song. This is Neil Young‘s version:
