Seeing as the writers of aDeadKid have some complimentary tastes in music, both of us are taking a shot at the popular Tumblr survey “30 Songs in 30 Days” list. So get ready for a shitload of name-dropping and youtube clips as Brian and Matt proudly give you their 60 Songs in 30 Days…
Day 09 – A song that you can dance to
Brian: Just so you know… I can dance to any song. Name it, and I can move around to it with a semblence of rhythm. This isn’t bragging. I would say that all people can dance to any song — the question is, do they WANT to. ANYway….
Say what you will about The Great Cowbell Uprising of the 2004’s, the world needed cowbell, and it didn’t hurt that the perfect storm of James Murphy and Bruce Dickinson (Christopher Walken) started pleading for it at about the same time. As MattyDangerFox can attest, I take dancing to The Rapture’s “House of Jealous Lovers” very seriously. They played it at Bonny’s a few weeks ago, and that was it — it was time to freak the fuck out.
Matt: I was lucky enough to see Brian lose it to “House of Jealous Lovers,” and I wish I had it on video.
Anywho, lately I have been heavily into this whole bass scene that has been growing in places like London and San Francisco, and the tracks being pumped out make it impossible to not want to get that booty shaking. On a decent sound system, this stuff can seriously rattle your bowels and make your knees go weak, so you can’t really stand still even if you want to. Dark Sky is a group that has gained a lot of respect in the scene, basically because they consistently make excellent tracks in a genre that is in danger of getting old quick. One of there more recent bangers is off of the Radius EP that was released earlier this year. Turn your subs up and give a listen to “The Lick.”
