I wasn’t much a fan of the standard Jamie XX Remix until I stumbled onto the version featuring Childish Gambino. His verse literally makes the song.  Clearly, as with most of his rhymes, it is not safe for work.

Also the Edward Sharpe / T.I. mashup is really interesting.

Confessions Week : Pink

So I was debating in my head which artist to chose for the final installment in Confessions Week.  There were quite a few of songs/artists I could have chosen from, but my mind was made up last night as I surfed back and forth between Conan and Ferguson.  Honestly, Pink’s performance on Conan last night was worth staying up until 1:30 in the morning.  It was that good.  Now for those of you who are just showing up to these posts here on TWF let me explain a bit.  Normally I post about music that I really love and artists that I support.  While that is true of every post I write here on TWF it does seem that most artists I choose to write about could fit into a small subset of music.  With Confessions Week I was aiming to finally admit that I listen to other music, yes even top 40 music, in an effort to show that good music can be found in almost every genre {except country}.  If you’d like to read all my confessions click here.  Next week I’ll be returning to my regularly scheduled broadcast.

mp3 : Pink – So What

Pink has a brand new attitude, she’s still entirely hot {minus the face piercings, I mean seriously, is it still 1998?}, she’s newly single, and she might be making the best music of her career.  I must admit, I’ve listened to this single, off her new album Funhouse (amazon) (itunes), at least three times in a row and I’m not sick of it.  I actually enjoy it quite a bit.  Does it remind anyone else of Kelly Clarkson’s Since U Been Gone?  Oh no, I’ve said too much.  Happy Halloween.
