For the letter "U" I thought I couldn't remember any good song, but...once again I was wrong! I've selected Underworld and a portuguese band UXU kalhus!
- Underworld - Born Slippy (Born Slippy (Nuxx) (Radio Edit) - 1995)
When I opened a web search finder and entered "U artist"..I immediately saw "Underworld", and despite not knowing their music in detail, the "Born Slippy" marked an important moment in my life: The first time I went out at night to a disco!! Oh yeah!! I don't remember how old I was, just that I was under 15 and it was during summer vacation. Obviously I went with my cool aunt Fernanda!! This was the song I enjoyed most that night :)
It seems I was not the only one picking up this song, right @rmach!? (Music A to Z challenge #U - My choices: Underworld and UB40)
- UXU kalhus - Erva Cidreira (A revolta dos badalos - 2006)
UXU kalhus is a portuguese folk group whose sound is somewhere between fusion and world music. They sang in portuguese and often make folk versions of traditional portuguese music, which makes me go in a journey to my childhood.
I also recommend the "Saia da Carolina" which is usually taught to young kids at school, but I found out it can have a double meaning, making it a cheeky song too ;) The song mentions the skirt of Carolina and a lizard tail which might be associated with man's arousal.
Hope you enjoy it too!!
