“IUD” by Okay Kaya

I am bonkers about this song, and the artist Okay Kaya, lately.

I showed it to some friends, and one of them said “It sounds haunting.” I guess maybe a little. However, it’s a song about someone wanting a partner to come with them to get an IUD in. It’s very clever and a bit bawdy (not really to me because I don’t think contraception is a bawdy topic), but to me, the song is very romantic.


She sounds just as wonderful live, and you can enjoy people chuckling in the background on the clever parts.


“Getting to Know You” by Onyx Collective

Most folks know as “Getting to Know You” as a song performed by the celebrated Queen of Musical Theater (and film!) Julie Andrews in Rodgers and Hammerstein classic The King and I.

However, lately, I am really feeling this Onyx Collective rendition of “Getting to Know You” (ft. Okay Kaya & Julian Soto). I will do a follow up post about Okay Kaya because she is phenomenal.

Onyx Collective is an experimental jazz collective. And for their album Manhattan Special, they decided to cover only Rodgers and Hammerstein classics. An interesting choice, but I’m not mad about it.

This rendition is perfect to me during this beautiful time of year and the general vibe I am feeling and hoping to hold onto for a little bit.
