The Beat Frequency - February 19, 2010

The Beat Frequency's BIRTHDAY EDITION.

haha, no, but it was my birthday on the 18th and we had a decent amount of celebratory music. Starting with "Birthday" by The Beatles.  Of course.  Kate Nash's "Skeleton Song" was also played because of the line "now I'm twenty-two." (which strangely, Kate Nash wasn't when I first heard her sing that song.)  Another birthday track was "Older" from They Might Be Giants, played a bit later.

A friend posted some lyrics to "Fool in the Rain" on Facebook and I remembered how much I love that song.  My dad loves Led Zeppelin, so we used to listen to a lot of them when I was younger.  Thanks family for liking good music. :)

Yeasayer's "Sunrise" was used in a rap track by Childish Gambino, also known as Don Glover of 30 Rock writing and Community fame (he plays Troy).  He's hysterical.  After listening to his rap over the track (which I'm fairly positive can't be played on the radio, pesky FCC) I fell in love with the Yeasayer original.

One of my favorite tracks which I had the chance to share this week was the mashup of The Killers' "Smile Like You Mean It" and La Roux's "Bulletproof" ("Smile Like You're Bullet Proof").  Great songs, great mashup.  Fanfarlo's "Harold T. Wilkens or How To Wait For A Very Long Time" is also an incredibly catchy new tune.

We also played  "Land Down Under" by Men At Work in remembrance of me being in Australia around this time last year, and also hearing it on the way to Cornerstone on my birthday.  Also, "Tusk" by Fleetwood Mac made an appearance on my shuffle on my birthday and then made its way onto today's playlist. Enjoy.
