Fun song for Friday…

May 28, 2010

I’ve been listening to some new Podcasts, and this morning, while listening to Slate’s Culture Gabfest, I happily came across a critique of Janelle Monae’s brand new album, and was pointed in the direction of this youtube video of her performance on David Letterman. She’s got some fun funk going on here, with a huge hat tip to James Brown. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    She’s good, but I don’t know what the hell she’s singing about. But the BAND is the best part.

    Pretty good!
    I used to dress like that bass-player, back in 1980. I always wore a white shirt (usually British tab), black pants, skinny black tie, and red Chuck Taylor All Stars. Heck, I even mowed the lawn in that get-up.

    I really wish music like this got more airplay. Instead, we get the same old tired pop tunes where people don’t really sing.
