Jennifer Paige - Crush

Jennifer Paige – Crush

This was a major success back in the 90s and for good reason. The instrumental, while fairly typical for that period, has plenty of detail and variety. The lyrics are fun, but it’s the way they’re sung that really carries this song. I’d do without the “shalalala” though :).

”I see ya blowin’ me a kiss
It doesn’t take a scientist
To understand what’s going on, baby
If you see something in my eye
Let’s not over analyze
Don’t go too deep with it, baby (baby)
So let it be what it’ll be
Don’t make a fuss and get crazy over you and me
Here’s what I’ll do
I’ll play loose
Not like we have a date with destiny
It’s just a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It’s just some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you”

Zendri Antibiotic - Big Pharma

Troubles with Antibiotics

Mentatul Monthly Focus
October 2019 Edition
– Antibiotics –

The antibiotics industry is going through rough times. Big Pharma is heavily polluting Asia, where India and China are the main producers of the world’s most commonly used drugs.
But it’s even worse when companies give up researching new antibiotics because these sort of medicine doesn’t give enough profit.

Apollo 440 - Gettin High On Your Own Supply

Apollo 440 – The Machine In The Ghost

A piano, a trumpet, a guitar and a synthesizer walk into a bar. And then everything begins to swirl…

We have this concept of the “ghost in the machine”. But what if at the heart of the ghost there is a machine? With its mysterious textures, this song explores the concept, making use of samples and playing with unexpected sounds. Beware this one. It may throw your mind off balance without a moment’s notice.

Apotheist - Salvation

Apotheist – Salvation

Some songs just want to rip subwoofers apart. They want to shake walls, drive neighbors nuts and rearrange the listener’s innards. This tight-rhythmed bass-feast works in headphones too, but one day make sure you let it tear through some thousand watts equipment!

It may be tempting to say it’s repetitive, but there’s some clever construction here. The main theme only serves to emphasize changes of tone and breaks in the rhythm. Listen carefully and, for heaven’s sake, move your body! Dubstep at its best!

Bobby McFerinn - Simple Pleasures

Bobby McFerrin – Don’t Worry Be Happy

This is the sound of history. The sound of wisdom touching society and transforming swathes of it. It’s a song that touched billions of souls and will continue to echo throughout history as one of the pearls of the 21st century or even the 2nd millennium. Yes, it’s that large. And what’s even more mind-blowing is that Bobby hasn’t used a single instrument other than his body to produce this masterpiece. Now go and listen to it a hundred times and continue to be amazed at finding something new every time and let this wisdom permeate every atom of your body.

Ugress - Unicorn

Ugress – Lost In Time

Time’s short, so this tune doesn’t waste any second to reach its climax. It takes us on a quick ride through groovy beats, it rushes to the spicy blend of dreamy voice and echoed synths and then immediately proceeds straight to the dancefloor.

And then, just when you think you got it, it’s over. Thanks the Gods of Technology for effortless rewind capabilities (aka “abusing the replay button”).
