Saturday Morning Quickie
oh oh! That's what she said!!!
Okay, so I have tons to share, most of it centering around what I did on my summer vacation and the fantasy love of my life, Rhett Miller, but I just got back from a whirlwind 36 hours in New York City and Geo's making breakfast (mmmmm....breakfast) and I'm having trouble figuring out how to upload the uber terrific videos from my new swanky camera and I kinda want to spend this rarest of rare Saturdays off with, you know, my hubby and.... yadda yadda yadda
Anywho, we subscribe to a newsletter by this guy Bob Lefsetz who is some kind of muckity-muck in the music biz. He's really good particularly if you're interested in his opinions about the state of the music world. You can subscribe to his newsletter here:
Again, I digress...
So, his last posting was all about how certain songs produced today would never have been a hit or even heard 20 years ago, but with the onslaught of YouTube, pretty much anything goes. He found this video that is the irresistible combination of questionable content set to the most contagious old-school, soul be-bop, Motown beat. Think Gnarles Barkley meets The Spinners. This is one of the best I-hate-you-I-can't-live-without-you break up songs.
It is absolutely not work viewer friendly, so put your freaking headphones on Asshat because you are going to LOVE IT and want to play it over and over and over ...
(P.S.: You have to click the corner to watch this masterpiece full screen on YouTube)
And haven't we all wanted to say this to an Ex!! Why is this not on iTunes? Seriously. I dare you not to get this stuck in your head. Just try not to sing the chorus aloud at Chucky Cheese.
Enjoy your Saturday!
