earworm of the day: kill the poor

last night i was in a rather tiny little bar with terrible lighting and only one other patron which i kind of enjoyed. i like small quiet places to drink especially when all they're playing is misfits, dead kennedys, sex pistols and the germs.

good times.

earworm of the day: there will be tears

yes mr. hudson released this first but frank put a pretty cool spin on his version by making it about the loss of two father figures. it's not easy growing up with a missing parent and it's even worse when you start considering a new person a replacement for that parent only to lose them too.

i'm not sure if there's anything that can hurt you or make you feel wonderful like family can.

earworm of the day: change is gonna come

pretty lights is known to some as derek vincent smith. his music jumps back and forth between genres but is rooted in instrumental hip hop. i've been hearing a bit of dubstep influence creeping in to his stuff in the last year or so and it will be interesting to see if he develops it further or leaves it at just an influence.
change is gonna come is the first track off his 2008 double album filling up the city skies. it starts out with a sam cooke sample where it gets it's name from. it took a while to grow on me because pretty lights version is a lot more up beat than i was expecting but it's hard not to love sam's voice as he reassures us that no matter what, things will get better if we work for it.
