TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

This week I’ve been at a serious pow wow, a meeting of the minds—music minds actually—with the intense single-minded goal of sharing music. Attending this conference was a “music head” from nearly every country in Europe, as well as homies from Australia and Japan.

Hanging with these folks got me thinking about some of my favorite songs from countries and cultures abroad. With a smile, I’m calling this Idelic Hour playlist “Doode International.”


So please dig on this hour of songs, many of which are sung in a tongue other than English. It features classic Brazilians Jobim, Gilberto and Regina. Old school chanson française Johnny Halliday and Sullivan, as well as contemporary French cool, 1995 and Polytechinques. Also in the mix: Japan, Sweden, Czechoslovakia, Ireland, Portugal, and beyond.

No need for proper pronunciation just hum along.


The Idelic Hit of the Week:
1995 – La Suite
