My iPod is broken. Long story short, it won’t even turn on and loves to give me error messages. So to make myself feel better, I’m going to be presenting you all with some songs that I used to love to listen to on my iPod. Hopefully if you guys all get a little bit of happiness, it’ll equal up to my great bit of sadness.
MP3: Starlight Mints – Popsicle
It doesn’t get much more fun that this, people. Starlight Mints have created one of my favorite mindless pop tunes. I hate to sound cliche, but it fight quite nicely on my summer playlist (that is now deleted). If you never thought you’d be unable to resist singing along to some “la la’s” then this song’s for you.
MP3: The Unicorns – I Do (It)
This track from Unicorns Are People Too catches the Unicorns at their best. From the sexually suggestive lyrics to the cutesy karaoke-esque music, this song probably won’t take long to burrow into your brain. I know this sounds like the traditional indie stereotype, but their early stuff kicks butt. As a side note, I’ve been reassured that the Unicorns’ albums/EPs Unicorns Are People Too and 3 Inches of Blood are out of print and okay to post. Anyone interested?
MP3: Bhangra Knights – Husan
I could be way off on the title of this track, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome. My good buddy Neil (who is Indian) showed us this great car commercial from India with some awesome techno-y song in the background. So when I got home, I hit up the Google to find it. Thankfully it lead me right to the song I was looking for. Thank you Google.
MP3: Yulduz Usmanova – Tak Boom
Back before I read blogs (let alone had one), my good buddy Kristine told me that I just had to check out this song. I believe it was hosted over at The Catbird Seat, but that’s not really important. It’s got an amazing organ riff and some awesome background vocals. I believe that the lyrics are Uzbekistani, but I’m most likely wrong. However, good music defies all language barriers, as this song proves.
