New Old Music

Once in a while, a song will come on and you will instantly love it. The only thing that gets in the way from your enjoyment is that darn title - it doesn't stick with you sometimes. Alas, I have found one of the many that scatter my brain.

Chumbawamba - Tubthumping

The alternative title is "I Get Knocked Down," which isn't as fun as the original. It's positive, it's got attitude, and it screams "90s Music!" Throw in some operatic bridges, a catchy chorus, and you have a fool-proof single right here. OK, so it may not be a new song that I recently discovered, but it was too good to give up. They had a fun band name that you can say all day (and it rhymes!) For some reason, I am reminded of this movie... Blame it on the commercial. Whether you love to hate or hate to love this song, there is no denying that it gets stuck in you head. Whatever the situation may be, just go with it.

New Old Music

Although I found this song a few years ago, it never made my shuffle playlist/challenge thingy. So while I was at work, I went through some songs that I was going to put on this list. Somehow this popped in my head, and I knew it had to be today's entry. So without further ado...

Space Cowboy ft Chelsea Korka - Falling Down

For those who recognize the name, he is one of the producers for Lady Gaga's album, The Fame Monster (link is one of my favourite songs from her). He is, however, not the main inspiration behind the *NSYNC song d": But moving on: the sound is almost similar to what the early stages of Gaga were, all with a different flare. Add in a contestant from Search For The Next Doll (admit it, you watched that show!), and it's a pump-up jam in my book! She's been releasing her own content, and even has her own page. As for Space Cowboy... Well, I think producers know that they stick to what they do best, and let the artists represent their work for them. But hey, he tried, and it's quite catchy if I don't say myself. Just hope I don't fall, fall, fall... XD

New Old Music

I can't believe all the new music I've been finding recently... What surprises me more is the age of the songs. Although some will be only a few months old, they will not be part of my year-end countdown (I'm a stickler when it comes to that!)

So once a week, I'll show you a song that I have recently found. Hope you enjoy it!

Basement Jaxx - Raindrops

OK, so this doesn't actually count as 'new,' since I have had this since 2009. But thank goodness for the shuffle button on the music player, because this still sounds fresh. There are so many good hits from them, but I think Good Luck is my favourite (especially from this clip). So why choose this song? Because it's romantic. You can still feel that person despite the physical distance between each other. The only other reason that I've got would be because it's stopped raining recently, and this feels like summer coming back again. I'm not saying for the rain to come back anytime soon, but having it remind you of that special someone... well that's something.

Other great songs from them are Oh My Gosh, and Where'e Your Head At. Can't wait to hear new stuff from them soon!
