Midnight Gems - Your free weekly Mix-Tape Show - E 07 "I Got It All Mixed-Up"
If a debut single of a debut album sounds like this....
What the candy canes can we expect in the future? This is just so crazy well done.
Matija - Song For Celine
I played this jazzy Belgian chocolate before and wanted to add this song to that set. That would be a bit too much of a good thing so here she is again.
Typh Barrow - The House of the Rising Sun
G.D. if that is not a classic way of performing a classic, I will eat my hat on.... This next one probably will become a classic, just like "Leaving on a Jetplane," but then different.
Post Malone & Angus Stone - "Big Jet Plane"
Hard to follow up two classics, but this next tune is just a nice little go-between. Nothing major but be aware of the earworm effect.
Youth Lagoon - Prizefighter
In this cute little gem I play next it´s because of a little thing her voice does at 0.37 - 0.53 and it has nothing to do with the fact that Cafuné is Brazilian Portuguese for running your fingers through somebody's hair as a gesture of care.
Cafuné - Perspective
Love the song, just so sweet and dreamie but don´t get distracted by the pants in the video....don´t look just keep dreaming. I think the could dress like Harry Styles, but they lack.... the style to get away with it.
Canons – Gold n Cover
So many Gems, so little time. She sounds like so much all at once...from AbbA to Florence + The Machine, but it´s just little Sarah.
Sarah Kinsley - Oh No Darling!
Brodde Dalle, Icon.
If you don´t know Brodde, you have to go back to music school and study. Brodde is no GOAT but she is an Icon and miss Manson is from Garbage just in case you thought that her name rang a bell.
Brody Dalle - Meet The Foetus / Oh The Joy ft. Shirley Manson
Just to make sure you don´t think I turned all soft on you, it´s not Linkin Park, not Panic At The Disco, but if I would throw those bands in one blender you probably get Connor Kaufman.
Connor Kauffman - Bleed
I love the Velvet Underground & Nico, they brought the darkness closer...but not like this. This is just sick, spooky, weird and I love it (sorry I might have a bit of an acquired taste).
Smooth - I'll Be Your Mirror (1994 Goth Rock)
All these gems were added to this week´s YouTube playlist.
All Midnight Gems Playlist can be found here
The Spotify playlist might not capture the whole show but is meant to represent it as well as Spotify makes it possible

Easy, just find the connection between these 3 songs and drop the answer in a comment below or on the original #TTT Riddle Post
The Old Hint from this week´s Tune Tune Train:
- Let´s do another musical hint this week, but no Blondie: I´ll be your mirror
And one more hint for those who made it till here: Who´s That Girl
What the fluff is midnight gems?
Somewhere lost in time, trying to escape out of the rabbit hole back into the rat race there is a vacuum..... that´s the place where midnight gems are found.
My Midnight Gems will try to uncover & recover those beautiful songs that nobody ever noticed or might have been forgotten.
Who the fluff am I?
Being a former DJ playing about everything and having an uncompleted study of radio journalism. I have been wanting to do this for years...Thought about it many nights and guess now it´s time to finally take it to the streets.
Hope you enjoyed this well-known wave of fantastic music and that you still feel like joining me on the next Midnight Gems Session coming soon.
