Midnight gems session 2.png

For those of you that are new to my MidNight Gems series. Welcome to this nightly trip on which we will uncover & recover some amazing songs & covers.

This is my show.
This is where you need to go.
For Tonight I am your DJ

Let me try to color a bit more within the lines of the lunacy that you are used to from me. It´s nice to be different sometimes, like last week. But in the end, we are here to enjoy ourselves and not show off how diverse we can be, at least that is what it is about for me.

Now when I was thinking about starting the show off with this song I was worried about putting you to sleep. But it might just create that calm at the end of the week to really enjoy what I will be throwing at you tonight.

CLANN - I Hold You

SYML remains a great one to check out, and a great fit to slowly build up that tension tonight.

SYML- "Fear of the Water"

Now I am gonna keep building tonight, creating a well build playlist filled with fitting gems.

Mansionair - Easier

But without being boring so I need to keep you interested and if it comes to messing with you ears I am a little devil. Or should I say Kovacs is. Damn she is a Gem.

Kovacs - The Devil You Know (Official Video)

Now I always try to stay away from country, but I guess I can´t hide my guilty pleasure. Still if done well, nothing wrong with no musical genre.

War Hippies - The Hangman

The only thing with playing that Hangmang song is where to go from there to keep the element of surprise? Let´s dance with that Brandi devil a little, no Joke she so deserves it.

Brandi Carlile - The Joke

Now taking my feet off the paddle a little to make room for tonight's big finale.

This song had 2 views when I found it, so it´s probably horrible but I loved it.....starting with the title and ending with an empty bed every night...

It´s discoveries like this that make me love creating this show.

Jess Revell - I felt like lorazepam when you split me in two

Hi Dear Reader, guess we can do with a bit more acoustic guitar and monkey sounds kicking off the big final tonight. Eminem did it, Plan B did it, and now Ren did it best. And by the looks of it, he had enough lorazepam already.

Ren - Hi Ren


Guitar heroes all-time greatest or at least one of them has just left the building. Let´s hear them hit those strings one more time!

RIP Geoffrey Arnold Beck

Jeff Beck & Tal Wilkenfeld - csodaszép előadása

Now I was about to end the show and then this happened, R.I.P David Crosby.
Damn, I guess I am getting old as so many classics are called to play the Great Gig In The Sky. This song was probably the first English song I remember hearing when I was little.

Youtube Playlist

All these gems were added to the YouTube playlist.

All Midnight Gems Playlist can be found here

Spotify Playlist:

The Spotify playlist might not capture the whole show but is meant to represent it as well as Spotify makes it possible

Riddle Me This

Guess What, Nobody Guessed My Riddle Yet!
And I thought it was an easy one???




So the connection hint was I just gave you a mirror of a mirror, of two songs that need to be connected to the third. That third is indeed the third song in the list, and if you connect the songs to the Key hidden in the title you should be well on your way....as in Google we Trust.

Well just drop the answer in the comments of this week´s Tune Tune Train and get that One Dollar Ecency Boost on your next post.

What the fluff are midnight gems?

Somewhere lost in time, trying to escape out of the rabbit hole back into the rat race there is a vacuum..... that´s the place where midnight gems are found.

My Midnight Gems will try to uncover & recover those beautiful songs that nobody ever noticed or might have been forgotten.

Who the fluff am I?

Being a former DJ playing about everything and having an uncompleted study of radio journalism. I have been wanting to do this for years...Thought about it many nights and guess now it´s time to finally take it to the streets.

Hope you enjoyed this well-known wave of fantastic music and that you still feel like joining me on the next Midnight Gems Session coming soon.

I was listening to some Brandi Carlisle on the way in to work this morning. Awesome stuff!

Thanks,I basically rediscovered her recently but she is awesome indeed, I know so many songs of her but they never stay on my radar, btw I love that Jeff back guitar and violin encore as well !CTP

So many great people we have lost lately. McVie, Crosby, Beck. I feel like there are a couple more in there too. Sad...

Yeah it feels like they all are leaving the stage around the same time, Meatloaf, Tom Petty so many these last two years guess there is a huge festival being organized in the beyond.

Yeah, there must be. That's a great way to look at it!

Since today isn't the beautiful day I was hoping for in terms of the visible sun, I found myself resting on my couch early this morning. Time to spend some quality time on your post here, the music and even the riddle.

Riddle: Am soooo bad with riddles. Even with all your clues, and the hint to use Google, I still have no clue. "Back Mirror" maybe? No idea what this has to do with 'Book of Love' {SMILEY} Never seen the series, but somewhere on my list with all sorts of recommendations by others.

CLANN: It was a pleasant surprise to see this piece of music start the series you made. By now am following CLANN on my Spotify, but this took some two years. Discovered this one through a HIVE colleague of hours, two years ago. Super happy to see it here as well.

Some others in your posts made it to my TBD for more discovering, including Mansionair (I do like the kinda electronic rattling sounds), Kovacs (a sound I do like, but know way too little about), Brandi (such beautiful voice, subtle and powerful at the same time), Jess Revell (I like the super acoustic recording with the fingers moving across the guitar strings). Ren: Interesting when watching the video while listening, but not my cup of tea from just the musical side of things {SMILEY}

NJOY your Sunday {WINK}

ps Thanks so much you started to create the playlists also on Spotify. For a month or two I started to push myself to use Spotify more, to listen to music more often than I do whilst trying to enhance my 'office' days with music. Not very successful on that front since then, but again, today, I told myself: "Listen to music more often." Having your GEMS in Spotify playlists makes it easier for me to keep up with your weekly creations, I hope {SMILEY} As you may have noticed, I started following you over there. Now I need to see whether Spotify notifies me when you create a new playlist. Let's see what happens coming week.

Damn that is a lengthy comment !LOL , you could have turned it into a spread the vibe if it had two more paragraphs but this is why I do the show. There is just so much great stuff out there that does not reach the radar of a wider audience.

Btw I think I just drafted three chapters or at least two listening to childs. Ren btw probably needs some perseverance as this is not his usual cup of tea as well.

I did not notice your follow, so you could have been hidden there in plain sight between the other 5 followers, but it is definitely nice to see you there.
And I am still thankful for the suggestion as it is great to share through different channels.

I need to figure out the best treatment for my narcolepsy.
My doctor told me to sleep on it.

Hahahahaha indeed, my comments can be quite lengthy. It is said more than once I'm writing post-like comments. Well, I used to write them, since I am not too active on the comment front for the last longer period. Ahhhh, you gave me an idea. Maybe I shall try to copy/paste a comment and create a post from it. Orrrrr, I link the comment above in the comment section of my previous StV post, something that I already mentioned in the post I may do when I get to respond to a music post 😉

Cool: You gonna create an StV post? 🥳 Looking fwd 📖 🎶

I did a StV in the past but I think @mipiano might have just created a post about my mind asking for a #STV

the magic of @mipiano 😉



This came out as magician in the GIF section. And it seems if he would actually play the piano...an invisible one though 😂

😂 😂 😂 sooooo nice one 🙇

She is something special, I never met her although she lives in the same country but sometimes great musical minds just think alike I guess...

🎶 🙇

Spreading the vibes and music with and for our happy minds 😊 🌟🌟🌟

for reasons to tedious to go into I still dont have sound on my desktop, so I've marked these to have a listen via the iPad later in bed.

tedious reasons. just the wording made me curious, but bed is a good place for this weeks gems enjoy

I have a nice sound system for the PC, but atm it's in the corner of the lounge and until I have a space where it wont have to fight with others watching tv etc, I'm not taking the time to set it up

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity, I have only a soundbar but in general use a very nice headset which really makes me disconnect from everything but my PC !LOL

Can February march?
No, but April may.
