Foxygen – Shuggie

I kind of had a hard time deciding between this song, San Francisco, and No Destruction. I went with this one because it features a few different styles. These guys are basically ’60s revival, but where the Brian Jonestown Massacre are doing the Stones, Foxygen is heavy into the Kinks and Donovan. They’re a couple of guys based in L.A., and if you’re in the right mood, their stuff is really good. Though it’s kind of hard to tell whether they’re sincere or maybe a bit affected.

They’re playing Pitchfork this year, and because I thought the lineup on the whole kind of sucked, it served as a good motivator to listen to bands on my radar that I hadn’t yet made time for. As a result, they’ve become one of my new musical obsessions. I’ll probably post another one of those on Wednesday.

It’s Just My Soul Responding-Smokey Robinson

This song is very interesting. A reflection on the treatment of African and Native Americans in America. It is very hypnotic. The Native American musical portion seems somewhat odd, but the song is heartfelt. Just imagine someone singing this on American Idol.

HOLIDAY BAKE OFF THEME SONG-BG- SO MUCH EFFORT INTO THEME SONG!!!! MUCH MORE THAN PLAY-DOH WREATH FOSSIL COOKIES!

So, it comes down to this. Little Miss Bossy, BG, now known as LMB,BG has throne down the gauntlet from her thrown. She said that Res was in the same humor pool as Imus. Since Res is most likely dead because of this effrontery, she thinks she can steam to victory with her theme song.

YOU ARE THE JUDGES!!!!! JUDGE HER HARSHLY!!!!

The Oogum Boogum Song-Brenton Wood

This is a bummer because the You Tube is the karaoke vid. UPDATE, just got it with the p-love playa!

BW is Capt. Smooth. He is so smooth that he can slink together a pile of usual cliches, but then smooth bomb you with “go on with your bad self.” Indeed!

CAPT FRICKIN SMOOTH!

Go on with your bad self.Well that shit don’t work.
