Friday Music Special, April 3

"Zero" - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Thanks to this song, I'm unable to get through a single day without saying "get your leather on" at least thirteen times. Five of these are well-timed, three are only partially acceptable uses of the phrase, four are mumbled under my breath, and the last one is a bit like that kid who always starts the slow motion clap at the wrong moment in "Not Another Teen Movie".

"Skeleton Boy" - Friendly Fires
It comes in like a NES-Classic soundtrack, and goes out like a kitsch-pop version of "Freakbeat Phantom" (The Rascals). The middle is full of toe-tappy-goodness. Listen. Now.

"Revelry" - Kings of Leon
revelry |ˈrevəlrē| noun ( pl. -ries) (also revelries)
lively and noisy festivities, esp. when these involve drinking a large amount of alcohol : sounds of revelry issued into the night | as if you need a reason beyond this and the fact that it's a Kings of Leon track. | Tennessee never sounded so darned good.

"We Walk" - The Ting Tings
A softer, more sensitive Ting Tings track that pushe...aww...who are we kidding. They're still the best Target Commercial band ever to not have a track featured in a Target Commercial.

"No Time For Tears" - The Enemy
This song has made me unabashedly crank the speakers at my desk more times than I can count, over the past several weeks. I hope it does the same for you, and that your co-workers are as understanding of your zaniness as mine are.

Punk In Drublic:
"Know How" - Young MC
Because it's Friday, and to paraphrase my grimiest of colleagues: one must keep dancin'
