Californication Soundtrack: Danielle Duval, De La Soul, Chaka Khan, and Poets & Pornstars

“YOU’RE THE ONE THAT I WANT”   DANIELLE DUVAL

From the Californication soundtrack, an incredible new interpretation of the ultimate John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John song.  Imagine the Grease Soundtrack classic redone with a slow-burn tempo, heartfelt and emotionally drawn out to build the intensity.  The singer is from Montreal and hasn’t hit it big but this cover is incredible.

 

“IT’S ALL GOOD”  DE LA SOUL WITH CHAKA KHAN

One of the 80’s old school jazz-rap pioneers team up with the ten time Grammy winner, Chaka Khan. This unlikely collaboration released a great party jam for the new Millenium.    De La Soul isn’t known for their club music but adding in Chaka’s voice pushed this song to a new level.  De La Soul is still around and hit #1 six years later with Gorillaz on Feels Good Inc.

“MONKEY”   POETS and PORNSTARS

Released in 2007, the lead singer is an actor named Hal Ozsan.  The band’s sound is down and dirty, Sunset Strip sleaze metal, kind of a poor man’s Buckcherry.  Even though everyone seemed to like their vibe, they were a one and done band.   This stylish video features a cameo by actress Rachael Leigh Cook and Trish from MTV’s Real World.   “In The Dark” is their best song but no video on YouTube.
