The Sell Out Works On Me
The Concretes "Say Something New"The Concretes "You Can't Hurry Love"
So here's a couple from a band that's currently lighting up the commercials. I was first introduced to them almost a year ago by a revved up roommate. "Holy fucking shit, I just took a dump in my pants and and a shit in my mouth because this band is so piss-hot wonderful! You gotta hear this, my man!" Except he didn't say that, except for the last bit. And so I listened to it, and I heard it as a result of him jamming it around the house from time to time, and my reaction: sounds pleasant, but doesn't really take hold. I might've even broken some sort of gift giving etiquette because of my sheer lack of interest. I gave said roommate a pair of tickets for their show for his birthday, and refused to go myself (thoughts on this? the pair were for him and his girlfriend).
So where does this bring us? Right up to now, where I've seen that damn Target "Ikea rip off" commercial a couple dozen times with Say Something New
in it, and now I like it. I saw the video for the other song in Radio Shack the other day and realized that, hey, I guess I like that song too. Sometimes it just takes a good sell out.
Boring, Hillary? Too long? I know You Can't Hurry Love
is not too long.
This thing can be bought by you (at an exorbitant price) here
