Marvin Gaye vs Gorillaz – I Heard It Through the Grapevine vs Feel Good Inc

I’ll freely admit that at first, when rhythm oriented video games such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero dropped, I was a openly skeptical.  Over the past few years I’ve changed my tune and occasionally you’ll find me at a party rocking out the mic or drums on everything from Weezer to System of a Down (I won’t go so far as to actually own the games, but I also won’t sit disapprovingly on the sidelines).

Well the latest iteration of said rhythm games comes in the form of DJ Hero and yet again I find myself a bit of a skeptic.  The game seems like a gimmick, the control scheme feels a bit elementary, and I’m not sure if it will catch on (note I’ve been wrong before).  Of one thing, though, I am certain.  Some of the tracks contained on this game are amazing.  Simply amazing.  Here’s my favorite.

It might not make you a DJ.  You might not even enjoy playing the game.  You will, however, enjoy the music.

  1. Where you at with the posts, my man? I no longer have an expendable income of time to peruse magazines / scour the web for new music so I depend on the kindness of folks like you. Bring back the magic.
    …btw, what are your thoughts on the Monsters of Folk album? I may just be a sucker for a good drum beat and any mention of God, but I believe track 1 to be superb.

  2. This is enjoyable … and sounds live or something? Maybe it’s the crowd noise piped in on the game, I dunno. Wonder if it’s a rad game too.
