Day 248: Sensual Seduction by Snoop Dogg

17 Feb

I freaking love this song. Snoop Dogg is notorious for being one of those sort-of silly rappers, but this video tops it for me.

Don’t get me wrong, he’s super legit. I love almost everything he’s done especially this song. But only a silly person would make a music video for an already silly song look like it walked out of the early 80s.

I love it though, with all of its cheesyness.

So enjoy “Sensual Seduction” by Snoop Dogg

Day 224: Song I’m digging at the moment: The Opposite Of Adults by Chiddy Bang (feat. MGMT

24 Jan

Hey guys!

I want to feature a song that is kind of an odd one for me to put on here.

Rap group Chiddy Bang has kind of come out of nowhere and is starting to make an impact on the music scene. For me, I’m not normally in-tune with the rap scene, mainly because I come from an alt-rock/folk background (if you couldn’t already tell). But the reason I find myself fascinated by these guys is their remixes of bands that I love.

One example is their song “All Things Go”, which is a rap track over a sped up version of Sufjan Steven’s “Chicago” (which is my favorite song of his… click the link to check out the blogpost). While it’s a little odd and strangely uncomfortable to hear a chipmunk-version of Sufjan crooning this gorgeous song, it’s a pretty badass version of the song!

But the one I want to feature today has been stuck in my head for weeks (in a very, very good way). “The Opposite Of Adults” by Chiddy Bang (feat. MGMT) is a remix of alt-electronic band MGMT’s song “Kids” (I’ll include a copy of this song right underneath the Chiddy Bang version). “Kids” was kind of the summer-anthem of 2008, and everyone picked it up and made it into a huge hit. I love the song, myself.

But then came Chiddy Bang, who took the basic tune and added their own flavor to it – instant hit! “The Opposite Of Adults” is actually featured on the commercials for the new “Need For Speed” game, and it’s kind of blown up since then. It’s insanely popular and totally great!

I personally love how they took this song and instead of featuring the lyrics or song itself, they took a piece and made it their own song (of course giving cred to the original band). The rhymes are awesome too, different from the “bitches and hoes” of other common rap favorites.

Anyways, enjoy “The Opposite Of Adults” by Chiddy Bang (Feat. MGMT)
