“found a coat, and grabbed my hat…”

Side 2, track 6. I’ve been saving this one. It would have been nice to see if Jeff from Legends could have written it up, but considering it’s the 1 year anniversary of this blog (to this day), I figured I should do it. A big thank you goes out to all my readers. I’m gonna start doing 1 min. podcasts soon, so look out for those.

I won’t pretend to be a Beatles superfan, and some may say the part where Lennon goes “i looovee toooo turnnnn yoouuu oonnnnn…” is the best, but for me I like the old timey piano and the shaker action in this part.

“…she sounds just right”

Don’t you hate it when you’re at the bar with your buddy and you hear some footsteps, and you’re like “Oh yeah, you know what that sounds like…click clack click clack… a lady”! But then it turns out it was just a man with petite feet. The man had petite feet, and a feminine step, he sounded like a lady when he walked into the room. Oh well.

“Now, full details of the offer later”

2nd post from this album, hey I’m getting excited for the 3rd one! Madlib has records for days, I can only imagine how extensive his collection is. When I interviewed him back in 2005, he said it was even better than DJ Shadows’. At the beginning of this song, he just lets a few of them play. They’re pretty weird, radio commercials and what not.

“Vancouver”

You’re going to hear this word a lot leading up to the Olympics, but not like it sounds here. Considering Martyn is from the Netherlands, I’d love to see the Dutch team roll into BC Place playing this song.
