This is a great remix. Worth checking out if you’re a fan of the original song, and even if you’re not. “Sail” grew on me, but I wasn’t crazy about it when I first heard it a while back. However, I’ve only heard this remix once so far and I really enjoyed it.
“All the Shine” - Camp - Childish Gambino
Really wanted to write my own post instead of a reblog, but last time I checked, there wasn’t a really good version on YouTube yet. This song isn’t as good as “Bonfire” in my opinion, but it’s always very different…and still very good. All I can really say is that Gambino is off to a great start with this new album and I can’t wait for the rest of Camp to drop.
I gotta be honest. I have no idea what Shaggy is even saying in this song. I understand the first line, “Life is one big party when you’re still young, but whose gunna have your back when it’s all done?” But really, after that I have no clue what the hell he’s saying. Such a ridiculous accent.
That being said, Rayvon’s chorus is so great. By the way, who the hell is Rayvon?? Legit, never heard of the guy before I went to grab the video for this song off of Youtube. Dude’s got a pretty good voice, but I’ve never heard him in anything else.
Anyways, this song is such a throwback and just came on my iTunes, so I had to blog it.
Say Anything—“I Got Your Money (Ol’ Dirty Bastard)”
“Heyyy Dirtyyy, baby I got yo money, dontcha worryyyy”
Max Bemis is a genius. Who else could take this song and put their own twist on it in a humorous way while still respecting the original? He replaces every “Dirty” with “Bemis” and it is so funny. And honestly, every time Max says “n-word” in the song instead of the actual word, I crack up. Here’s this white as white Jewish boy singing such a vile song and it is pure magic.
“Yo, if Bemis wants his money, just give him his money!”
Such a good song! How did I ever forget about it.
Honestly, for some reason “Yellow” isn’t on my iTunes. I saw something mentioned about it online yesterday and I went to youtube it, because I thought I had never heard it before. Well, not only was that not the case, but I use to love this song. I instantly recognized the video with Chris Martin standing on the beach on a nasty day.
“I drew a line, I drew a line for you, oh what a thing to do, and it was all yellow.” Gave an ultimatum and shouldn’t have even bothered wasting his time doing that for her. Haven’t we all been there?
Eminem—“When I’m Gone”
Huh. Lovely topic…
To be honest with you, I’m not so much afraid of dying myself as I am of when people I love will die. Now, that’s not saying I wanna die right now. I’m looking forward to a nice, long life. But to quote Winnie The Pooh, “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” It’s a pretty selfish outlook, but it’s true for most of us. Who wants to see their loved ones die?
OK, now to bring the mood back up a little… I choice this song for the reasons I listed above. When someone you love dies, it’s such a painful experience. I want my death to be as painless for my loved ones as possible, so I would use this great song by Eminem to remind them to keep on living and help them heal. Even though I can’t really relate to the verses, it’s really just the chorus that applies…
My God, that was kind of depressing…I’m gunna hafta post some happy music later or something.
P.S. How clutch was that Winnie the Pooh quote? Bet you didn’t see that one coming.
It’s that awful part of the year again… midterms! And for those of you who are being driven crazy by the silence of the library or study lounges, check out Explosions In The Sky. They’re awesome. And there are no words, so no distraction! Woo! Happy studying! xx
This is some really great stuff, perfect studying music.
