Ora Cogan

was raised in her mother’s studio in Vancouver. At the tender age of 12 she already recorded her own songs, which she toured some years later Europe with as a street musician. Gaining life experience she now expresses in her grown up folk songs. 

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?

I was born in 1982! No song. No clue.

you come home from the club?
Prince Buster - Is Life Worth Living
you take a bubble bath?
Ernie (from Sesame Street) - Rubber Ducky

There is no option! This is the quintessential bath-tubbing song.

you relax on a beach?
Neil Young - Stupid Girl
you ride a bicycle?
Outkast - Wheelz Of Steel
you prepare a candle light dinner?
Skip James - Devil Got My Woman
you go to a club?
Charles Sheffield - It's Your Voodoo Working
you prepare for an important date?
Alfred G. Karnes - I Am Bound For The Promised Land

We'd fight over the record player and settle on something like, «I Am Bound For The Promised Land» by Alfred G. Karnes. A song we are both obsessed with at the moment.

you want to disturb your neighbours?
Scooter - One (Always Hardcore)

Although it might just confuse them.

you drive a car late at night?
Eyvind Kang - Sweetness Of Candy

This song completely transforms reality. One minute I'm driving down the road, the next thing you know I've transformed into some kind of fantasy creature flipping around in phosphorescent water.

you fall asleep?
Grouper - Heavy Water/I'd Rather Be Sleeping

This is my sleepy-time anthem. I have fallen asleep to this song at least a hundred times. Most calming thing ever.

you go fishing?
John Lurie - Fishing With John

I'd pretend I was fishing with John.

you are love sick?
Irma Thomas - I Wish Someone Would Care

She makes me feel like everything is going to be alright.

you make breakfast?
The Staple Singers - Respect Yourself
you make love?
Slayer - Raining Blood

Of course to set the mood just right I would have to go with the timeless romantic ballad.

you paint your apartment?
Bill Monroe - I'm Working On A Building
you jump out of a plane with a parachute?
Deep Purple - Bloodsucker

I think it would give me the confidence to do such a thing.

you sit in a plane?
Master Musicians Of Joujouka - Your Eyes Are Like a Cup of Tea

And then I watch movies for eight hours straight.

you play a game of chess?
Pablo Casals - Suite No. 1 in G

The Spanish Catalan cellist. And I would have to be in some old private library in London drinking whiskey by the fire place.

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
Dolly Parton - Daddy Come And Get Me

very song becomes creepy when I stay in spooky hotels. Especially when I tour alone. So I would go for gold with «Daddy Come And Get Me» by Dolly Parton. But only with one earphone in so I can still hear the footsteps of an axe murderer or a ghost if one should happen to choose me as its victim.

you sit in the subway?
Erase Errata - Tax Dollar
you wake up?
Ben E. King - Amor

This song just makes me feel chipper and fresh.
