June / July's Zydeco Songs!

Brian Salapek - Zydeco Music, I Gar-ron-tee

My comments: Even though the genre of Zydeco was my decision, I still had a really hard time getting into it.  I am not sure why, but I had a really hard time starting my song.  It got to the point where I had to force myself to do it during the last two weeks of July.  Thank god I found an accordion plug in for Fruity Loops!

Rene Zansman - Little Laura (The Sad Turtle)
My comments: This an instance where I feel bad for throwing such a weird distinctly American genre at Rene.  I imagine Zydeco isn't very popular in Norway, but I could be wrong.  Either way, Rene took the challenge and did what he does best with a pop song.  I hear where he was going with it in terms of the keyboard parts, and it may not be zydeco but it's definitely cool.  I love the piano throughout, and think Rene did a great job.
