I heard this song in Minneapolis last week when I was there for the Oz man’s district Championship game. They lost, the only loss of the season. Oz was pretty upset…
…j/k. He had a blast this year. It was cold, very very cold. So grabbing this picture with him while he was hot stepping it to the warm bus was my one shot.
Anyways. The music. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Kongos hit ‘Come with me now.’ Sure I love a good accordion in popular music so that was fun but then the radio played it on every station on the hour, every hour. Blech. Now I guess that I haven’t heard it in a while, I’m enjoying it more.
But “I’m Only Joking” has this beat change throughout the song that’s a lot of fun. It’s challenging and not music city regurgitative bullshit. Sure, it’s a couple years old. Don’t care. It’s my new favorite and has a freaky video to go along with it. Cool.
Enjoy the weekend.
The Kongos, I’m Only Joking.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
