If you are one of the many people who have heard of Robyn‘s acoustic version of Hang With Me, here’s the official single version. The acoustic version from Body Talk Pt. 1 is a mellowed down version with a slow paced piano accompaniment for the whole length of the song. Below is the acoustic version and the official single which you’ll find in Robyn’s Body Talk Pt. 2.

Looks like we’ll be seeing more of the Swedish fembot this 2010. Her album ‘Body Talk Pt. 1’ which seems to be receiving raves and positive reviews will be followed with ‘Body Talk Pt. 2’ by September 6th in the UK from Island/Konichiwa but the US release is yet to be confirmed.
The third and final ‘Body Talk’ album will be released at the end of the year (in time for Christmas). There’s an idea for a good gift. As reported by Billboard, the final album will star the best cuts from the first two installments of the series as well as several brand new tracks.
Here’s my favorite remix of “Dancing On My Own” from ‘Body Talk Pt. 1‘

This Weeklies post is dedicated to all my BONGGING friends who I haven’t seen for centuries. Getting together is so hard despite living in the same city. Don’t you hate busy schedules?
Anyway, I had a few TBT readers ask me why,I post stuff non-music related. Although this blog may be categorized as a music blog, I still am the one who created it and when I like to share something that I think would interest some, even a few, of the readers of this blog, I post it. I hope this wouldn’t cause irritation of any form to any of you readers. Around any time this year or the next, I’ll be adding more content into this blog featuring stuff not only music but the whole myriad under the pop culture umbrella! For most of the time, ‘d still post music but pop culture posts will we present as well. I hope you readers would view this small change as something positive for Thieves By Tuesday!

Been away from this blog for way too long. Explanation following in later posts, but for now, let me share this treat to all Robyn and Röyksopp fans.
None of Dem, comes off from Robyn’s highly anticipated first of the trilogy release called Body Talk, in this case, Part 1. Well you could understand her irritance smothered in her lyrics on the people in her “town”.
It’s the Lord of the Flies all over again.

I’m pretty much down lately, with all the school work, and “family feuds”, and I have been hitting the meds pretty hard to get rid of it. Sucks being busy and stuff and I just hate being sick (who does?).
This remix, from Bloody Beetroots of Robyn‘s cover of the Teddybears track, makes me get that warming feeling, like when you drink a little more than the usual dose of any of the “-quil”‘s. It just builds and builds and builds, and you want the climax to happen and bang and such, but it just mellows, like syrup or cold medicine. Which, on a day that requires an extraordinary amount of relaxing, is completely appreciated.
Download | Robyn – Cobrastyle (Bloody Beetroots Remix)
One of my favorite ladies from Sweden, Robyn, has released her FRESH video of Cobrastyle! Robyn is really something, don’t you think? Friendly blog Sheena Beaston was one of the first who got in it.
Sweet! No wonder Madonna got Robyn for her Europe Sticky and Sweet tour.
