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.

Now if you are not new you know I like like to make this show seem a little darkish, with a hint of melancholy and a touch of sadness. So how about the end of the world as a starter?

The End of the World - "Space Jazz" Skeeter Davis Cover ft. Niia

Oh and don´t forget to ask to be tagged in the comments if you want to receive a notification every Friday as soon as the latest Midnight Gems Session has aired.

The end of the world, when the rain is pouring down from heaven, those who are still alive would be suffering and you are all alone as there is nobody left to love.

Enrique Bunbury (con Miren Iza “Tulsa") - Frente a Frente

Now for many others the end of the world probably means death, and death is the involuntary right to be forgotten. That right did not happen to Lanegan. This former screaming trees singer, who was also part of Queens of the Stone Age (for those of you who like music trivia) was brought back to life by Miss Wolfe

Chelsea Wolfe and Mark Lanegan - Flatlands

Like the guy in the comments says:

"O wait, this isn't a duet, but a mixing of both versions together? That's pretty ingenious!"

Eric spoke about tears in heaven, but I don´t think Lanegan or my brother are letting go of any tears in heaven, and Belinda was as well wrong. Heaven is no place on earth, there are no tears in heaven, as there is no need to cry if you understand the "Why".

But these next guys bring Heaven just a little closer, like if you can smell a light scent drifting by.

HAEVN - The Sea (Audio Only)

We passed the midnight hour dear reader, streets are empty, winter is coming, and watch out this next song tends to hypnotize me beyond the astral plain, letting me look beyond the edge of the world.

Fever Ray - 'Keep The Streets Empty For Me'

Not sure how that is with you Dera Reader, but when I tripping like that I don´t want to come to my aching body, I want to keep floating with the music in my Brain, in my veins. So let´s keep floating Anomenously with this very recent release.

Anemonus - Mutilating love (feat. Olga Drivakou)

Just another day,
Just another pray,

What do you pray for dear reader? I am sure it´s not the end of the world....although that might be closer than we would like it to be. The villains in power do not seem to be out for peace, did they lack love growing up?

How come they want to see the world in hurt, what drives them to their inhuman behavior? What dark forces control these villains in power? I think I will let Madalen explain;

Madalen Duke - How Villains Are Made

No one ever starts that way, but somewhere they turned a dark corner. They got mugged in a cold wet dark alley, their love got robbed. Without love, the eye beholds no beauty, life is empty and at nights like this I am sure those villains listen to my show and go "Where´s my love?"

SYML - Where's my love (Alternative version) [Lyrics]

Don´t ask which YouTube Rabbit hole I had to go down to find these guys, but while wolfing around in that rabbit hole I found this perfect ended of the world song! Let it be the latest thing you hear tonight, and maybe the last thing ever if there is no tomorrow and the world ends here, tonight.

Anna von Hausswolff - 'The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra'

Didn´t see that coming did you, dear reader? The world ending doesn´t have to be all dark and ugly it can be an amazingly beautiful experience to release this mortal coil. Don´t forget to let me know if you wanna be tagged next week!

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 slightly confronting wave of fantastic music and that you still feel like joining me on the next Midnight Gems Session coming soon.

Ok, I started checking the music from the last video...
almost got scared and run away 😂
But then Where's my Love came... one of my students plays it on the piano - this version! 💛 🎹 of course, the beautiful cellos and violins are missing from our lessons. So I didn't run away from your post 😇

Thank you and you´re right. That last song is something PJ Harvey and Nick cave could have cooked up, but it grabbed me first time I heard it.
Still, I love to hear you knew what I thought was probably the biggest gem. Where´s My Love is so well done, both voice and instruments are so well done and well balanced allowing each other exactly enough room.
Let´s see if my picture can improve the Midnight Gems Brand, I was quite happy with it but of course we all know I have a horrible taste😁

Excellent write up @whywhy, some pretty good music here.
This post was obtained through Dreemport.

Your taste of selection is great, and the music 🎶 sounds interesting though not too conversant with most of them
Nice job here 👍🥳👏

Thank you and that Makes sense I try to showcase gems that are not too well known and sometimes add in a more popular song

Great playlists, weird that i viewed this at midnight in my time😂. Real midnight gems.

Danced in via dreemport

Well that is the best time if you ask me, I try to create/draft them around my midnight and work them out later


Great selection, my favorite so far is Fever Ray, I had to think where I heard this one before. I think it was from Red Riding Hood but then I remembered I think it was from Dark:

She sounded so familiar, but I could not link it back to dark. Glad you did thx! !CTP
