Jukebox of Guilty Pleasures: 1939 Ensemble

jukejuke - casey
Avant-garde duo 1939 Ensemble takes us back to both ends of the 1980s in this edition of Jukebox of Guilty Pleasures. First David Coniglio starts us off in 1980 with a Billy Joel track and provides his reasons for doing so and then his partner in crime Jose Medeles brings us up to speed with one of the most comical hip-hop jams of 1989 that still continues to haunt remixes and blogs alike. 

Stayed tuned for both instrumentalists selections...

1939 Ensemble

David Coniglio
Billy Joel - "All for Leyna"

"Growing up in NY in the 80's, Billy Joel was a rite of passage. Billy is a simple man who's songs were about break up, love, blue collar life style, and being a drunk. This gem of glass house displays Joel's fighting spirt and sweet keyboard work. I guess I'm a sucker for a good cord progression and nobody does it better then Billy."

Jose Medeles
Biz Markie - "Just A Friend"

"This track and video will always put me in a great mood. Killer beat, story and excellent popping at the end."
