Did You Hear? A Lady of a Certain Age and In Da Wind

New music! Sometimes old music. Music that we love!

I wonder if it’s possible to have a genre of music defined as artists who write songs hoping to get placed in a Wes Anderson film. There’s something abut this song that sticks with me–it’s a baroque pop song that tells a very specific story, but the most amazing thing to me is how perfectly matched the composition, tempo, phrasing, and instrumentation is to the narrative.

Remember Cee-Lo Green? I’m not talking about The Voice Cee-Lo, or the Gnarls Barkley Cee-Lo, not even the Cee-Lo who did that great track with Lauryn Hill on Santana’s celebrity bingo album. I’m talking about ATL Goodie Mob Cee-Lo. It’s hard to go wrong on top of such a great beat, but Cee-Lo just annihilates this track with the hook and his rap. Oh yeah, and Big Boi, he’s there just for good measure. Trick Daddy, I think you’re fine I guess.
