Jamiroquai

I can't believe they played Jamiroquai

General chat and meaningful discussion about Jamiroquai. News about Jamiroquai should be posted and discussed here.

To: Sony/BMG Music Entertainment UK

This Petition is lodged towards Sony/BMG Music Entertainment UK to ask and request them to release expanded and remastered editions of Jamiroquai’s first 2 studio album releases around the world, with new booklet artwork, expanded lyrics in some cases have been manufactured wrong or obsolete, and better overall audio quality. The albums in question, 1993’s “Emergency On Planet Earth� & 1995’s “Return Of The Space Cowboy�, given their strength in lyrical prose concerning world issues and humanity, and the reinvention of the musical genre of Acid Jazz and fusing it with R&B, Funk and Disco, deserve a audio updating. Both albums were recorded during the infancy of digital music recording within the confounds of the studio, and given the large advances in this medium, deserve to be brought up to speed in audio quality using these new advances. So, we the undersigned fans of Jamiroquai worldwide, request that Sony/BMG strive to reliven the soul of Jamiroquai’s earlier recordings and give them new audio life that they really deserve. Thank you for your consideration and I hope this leads to a much happier and in some cases enhanced Jamiroquai music listening experience!

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

When I was walking through The Container Store today one of the songs from the store's playlist was "Virtual Insanity". What's going on? Before I would never hear Jamiroquai anywhere but now I've heard them 2x in one month :)

Nothin like hearin Jami playin anywhere!!

Postby Main Vein on Mon Apr 03, 2006 12:41 am

Friends think im a little weird when i get so excited when i hear music bein played that i love, but who cares, they just dont get it, oh well!

One time in early October 2005 I heard Jamiroquai bein blasted from a club.. I was just walking in downtown Toronto whith a buddy gettin ready to hit the clubs.

I was like, holy sh*t, its Jamiroquai!!!! and its so rare to hear them, and this DJ was even playin a track from their first album!!!

It made my night!!!!!...and i forget what bar it was!! stupid me... but i do know it was across from Hooters, so that should help, lol :)

i must add though...

Postby Main Vein on Mon Apr 03, 2006 12:51 am

I'm livin in Toronto Cadada and i must add, although i was extremely excited to hear jamiroquai music pumpin outta that club and pourin funk onto the streets i do hear jamiroquai around here quit often..

they have played their tunes here a lot at the professional basketball team Toronto Raptors games.

I hear their stuff during shows similar to pimp my ride and television music shows. they play their tunes in the background a lot. much music is the MTV of Canada.

and they even show clips of jamie vids and they play clips of FJLIS durin an add for another channel here called much more music.

there music is definately played here, still not enough, and the vids are not played nearly enough even though the show up in music video channel ads, weird.. Jami is still much loved here,

I loved every second of the show when i saw them here in Toronto last october!!!!!

YOU ALL HAVE TO COME IN GREECE THIS SUMMER!!!!!

Clubbing here (especially in summer in the Greek islands) is Fantastic. Of course there are some good and some Bad clubs, but there is always a choice.

Clubs here dont play often jamiro (70% of the clubs here play the usual stuff and many greek tunes - which i hate them....), but there are some GOOD clubs, in the center of ATHENS ("PLAKA") which play some really nice DISCO FUNK TUNES!!

Clubs in greece open 00:00 and close in the morning......

Well in the islands there is no limit, in Myconos for instance, the party keeps going on and on 24 hours a day....

This is the "good side" of the story. There is always a "bad" one, especially when you have to deal with Greeks and Greek (new pop) tunes.......

in the woolworths where i work (kinda like walmart, bit smaller... the big w chains are more similar), they have a long tape that plays, rather than having a radio, lest a add comes on that endorses a rival company. so they choose the songs that play...
it's a whole mix of stuff... i can usually get through most of it, and block out the really bad stuff. but recently, they updated the track list, so usually every night i hear a jamiroquai track. they have cosmic girl, little l, and dynamite...
i have to restrain myself from breaking into dance whenever they come on... i usually make do by mouthing along with the lyrics...

Yesterday, for the first time in my life or at least in a veeeery long time, I heard Jamiroquai in a shop. They were playing Time Won't Wait in a regular clothes shop in Edinburgh :shock: :D. I had to check if I was listening to my mp3-player, but no, it was for real! :D :D
