Songs That I Secretly Like so don't tell anyone


[link is to listen & download via Skreemr; right click & save] This was used for the new batch of Converse promos, and you can check out the vid here on Youtube. Why is it a guilty pleasure? Not sure, and it's not the song itself-- which is excellent-- but everything about me is saying it is. Maybe it's the overwhelming hipster cred that smacks you across the face. This song is the equivalent of that guy on the L wearing skinny gray jeans, colorful high-tops, art-rim glasses (WITH NO LENSES, douchebag) and a thin striped scarf. Maybe it's cos I still don't like that Julian Casablancas. Maybe it's because I need a new pair of Converse and I can't face facts. Maybe it's cos I don't like the direction the company is trying to go in. But goddamnit, it's danceable and catchy, even with those Julian Casablancas whingeing portions.

Sorry, Tim.

Hey! Just posting to say thanks for the Boondock Saints OST :-) I was desperately looking for it... By the way, I'm adding your blog to my blog's links as gratitude ^^ And i'm gonna spend some time reading your blog.

Thanks!

you know, My Drive Thru, IS a fun song, but it's just a little to hip and clever for its own good, but don't worry...I won't tell anyone about your secret obsession if you promise not to about mine -

my wife laughs and laughs and laughs at me for loving this song, but I don't care - I'm above all that...

hey i r d a o ))) !! thanks for stopping by and the kind words-- it's always great to see a new face around- if you can let me know the link to your blog I'm always down for adding a new blog to the link list, too! (I'm not able to access it via your profile.) Hope to see you around!

Haha, yeah- this song is cute! It makes me think of a cuter, pixie-y Kate Nash? Good call on My Drive Thru being too clever for its own good. Like all those hipster.
