Fourplay Friday Vol 13

Happy Halloween! and it’s, Fourplay Friday Vol 13. Oooooh, how scary! I’ve already given you abit of the back story about why Friday is considered unlucky from Volume 8, but what about the superstition behind Friday the 13th? Well no real written references to Friday the 13th being unlucky occur before the 19th centry, and more than likely it’s a combination of two superstitions. One that Friday is an unlucky day and two, that thirteen is an unlucky number.

In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of divine organizational arrangement or chronological completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve hours of the clock day, the twelve deities of Olympus, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve Apostles of Jesus, the twelve successors of Muhammad in Shia Islam, twelve signs of the Zodiac, the twelve years of the Chinese Buddhist cycle, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table results in the death of one of the diners. The fear of Friday the 13th is also called paraskevidekatriaphobia a concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví, meaning “Friday”, and dekatreís, meaning “thirteen”attached to phobía, meaning “fear”)

On a side note in Spanish-speaking countries, instead of Friday, Tuesday the 13th (martes trece) is considered a day of bad luck. In Italian popular culture, Friday the 17th, not the 13th is considered a day of bad luck. The origin of this belief is the writing of number 17, XVII in ancient latin, can be shuffled to get the word VIXI, which means “I lived, hence now I’m dead.”

Now that I have rambled on more that I should lets cut to the music! First up we have one of the whole blogs all time favorites CloZee. Her beautiful and melodic remix of Koloto is yet another great track in her growing arsenal of music, and the perfect opener for todays Fourplay Friday. Next up we have ETC!ETC! and TightTraxx jamming out a powerful remix of Fox Stevenson out now on Firepower Records. Third on our list is a twitter find with a MuraMasa remix of Brook Fraser. This one so good it landed both of them a instant social media follow from me. Last up is Flight Facilities. I posted up the original of this track a month back and now Darius has put his spin of the lush chill track making it still lush but oh so dancefloor worthy.
