21 songs for female hysteria

posted by backtoreal on 07-01 -2011

Screams, cries, screeches, shrieks, howls, murmurs, grumbles, groans, whispers, whimpers… If not an awfully eclectic music paste taste or the concern of satisfying French, English, Turkish speaking entourage, these sounds are the main reason for these songs to gather in a podcast. This unusually long compilation opens with melo–hysterical mood where cries, screams of a mild hysteria already start to get heard. An Azerbaijani singer increases the tempo with jazzy tunes. Up with the tempo PJ’s uncanny whispers dissolve into Yoko’s groans and Jane brings them to a pseudo-orgasmic level. Chilled out with some Italian, some Swiss ladies bring uncanniness back with an unexpected cover. Then once again you are soothed. This time by the gentle voice of an insensitive murderer. Real hysteria arrives with Turkish “shut-ups” and obsession with the loved one peaks with mantra-like repetitions: again, once more again, new again, again and again. The podcast closes with three totally inappropriate prayers to God where one asks for a bodily redesign the other prays for seven husbands. All these women, some of whom you wouldn’t like to be the husbands of, some of whom you wouldn’t like to be children of and some of whom you wouldn’t prefer to be the lovers of, are in a way lovesick so we heart them.

şarkıcılığa soyunduk (undressed to sing)

posted by backtoreal on 03-08 -2010

Back in March 2006 we made a compilation with last.fm gang gathering “if you are man I’m a woman, evelallah I can kick your ass” type songs together. This year for the 8th of March International Women’s Day there is a new theme: Undressed to Sing. This documentary-compilation opens with pop, inescapably dives into 80s turkish arabesque and ends with livelier songs. You can sometimes feel suffocated because of the drama and the vocal performances but you will probably find the record of Hülya Avşar’s first ever appearance on stage in Germany, Lady Güngör Bayrak’s narcissist song, Fatma Girik funny pot-pourri, Yılmaz Güney’s exwife singing Sezen Aksu song, Müslüm Gürses’s wife singing Orhan Gencebay song and porn star Figen Han’s erotic song interesting. Here comes the track list:

Ay Altında – Selma Güneri
Bilinmez ki – Selda Alkor
Kalbinden Atma Beni – Meral Zeren
Aşkına Doyum Olmaz – Lale Belkıs
Vız Gelir Dünya – Sevda Ferdağ
Agora Meyhanesi – Fatma Girik
Kaderimin Oyunu – Muhterem Nur
Büklüm Büklüm – Nebahat Çehre
Tanrıya Feryat – Deniz Akbulut
Elli Yıllık Aşk – Sibel Turnagöl
Benim Adım Güngör Bayrak – Güngör Bayrak
Yak Ne Varsa Benden Kalan – Serpil Çakmaklı
Yağdır Mevlam Su – Necla Nazır
Gitme – Harika Avcı
Hayalleri Bırak – Ahu Tuğba
Mavi Mavi – Hülya Avşar
