1. Rodriguez – “Crucify Your Mind” (FAN VIDEO).

    With the Academy Awards just a few days away, we wonder if the documentary about the enigmatic folk/blues musician Sixto Rodriguez , Searching For Sugar Man , will win an Oscar. As we do, our attention wanders to Rodriguez’s haunting 1970 song, “Crucify Your Mind,” paired up here with introspective scenes from Ingmar Bergman ‘s celebrated 1953 drama, Summer with Monika . The result is a bit like watching a long-lost Smiths/Morrissey music video set to the soul-searching prose and melodies of a resurrected Detroit poet. (Just don’t call him Roberto Dylan.)
