About a year or so ago, my dear friend and walking, talking, scratching Hip Hop encyclopedia DJ Mace asked me if I were up for writing a column of sorts for the Fremdtunes blog. I gladly accepted this offer, but never really got to actually writing anything. Up until now that is. I was told I could pick any subject I wanted, just as long as it had something to do with music. So I decided to go with simply picking some of my favorite tunes from the past (and present). Not necessarily hard to find or crazy obscure stuff, just the ones that come with fond memories, or songs that have always stood out to me because of their sheer weirdness.
