Do This Thing, This Type Of Thing

Posted on: May 30, 2009

Today was a unique day for me. For the majority of the day I had no music due to circumstance.  As a Life of Tunes keener though, one of the things I do to have some extra fun with music is to ask my friends and family what they would like their ring tone to be on my Blackberry. One of the few calls I received today imprinted that ring tune in my head for the rest of the day. I had asked a good friend of mine what she would like her ring tune to be and she requested Groove Is In The Heart. Needless to say I wasn’t disappointed even after Peter Bjorn and John’s new CD Living Thing came out she changed her request to Nothing To Worry About. There are just so many positives in this change of direction.

livingFirstly I no longer had to feign forgetfulness in my quest to find the classic Deee-Lite song requested. Secondly, her new choice in Peter Bjorn and John is a wicked tune and one that perks me right up every time she calls. Perhaps the greatest part of all is that when I hear this tune I can’t help but think of the video which is freaking hilarious to boot. Let’s play a little word association game. I’ll say the word and you think whatever comes to mind then we’ll see how close you are to the correct answer.  Elvis———-Break Dancing———-Leather———- Hairspray————Motorcycles. The correct answer is Nothing To Worry About by Peter Bjorn and John of course!

Have a look and a listen at Nothing To Worry About. This tune is a Life of Tunes keeper and a good laugh to boot.

For shits and giggles you can watch Deee-Lite’s Grove Is In The Heart here as well. Ok ok, you caught me – fine. I just watched it and it wasn’t as bad as I remember it.

Wow – they sound different. Yep, letting my hair grow. hehe

I’m glad you bring these guys up because when Writer’s Block came into my world in early 2007 I was very happy. Not because of the cheeky, catchy, overplayed track Young Folks but for others such as The Chills, Up Against the Wall, Paris 2004 & Detects On My Affection for example. It was a perfect album for my winter blues. Not sure about this new CD. Haven`t heard it but this song does not sell it for me – no offense. Actually it sounds like Amsterdam on speed.

How dare you disagree with me! To each his own sir, but try this. Play this tune 327 times and try to still tell me you don’t love it…

Hey, it works with the video. The vid’s great fun… just not the song on it’s own, well ok maybe in a party. With lot’s of crazy hairdos and square dancing.
