I’ve found a lot of great tracks on Pandora that I’ve heard on stations based on my musical taste; Osunlade, Gigamesh, Maceo Plex, and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
So while listening to my station based off Maceo Plex, I was pleasantly surprised to hear a groovy-pop track by Shy Child called, “The Beatles.” Mind you, this isn’t a new song, but it’s still a great track worth posting. Well in my opinion, it’s a friggin’ awesome track!
The best thing about this song, is honestly, the lyrics. The lyrics are infused with this playful hint of rebellion, especially in the lines, “If it feels so right, how can anybody call it wrong? Jealousy belongs to everyone. Wanting turns to needing, and we take it from whoever we can get it from.”
Listen to the song below. It’s from Shy Child’s 2010 EP Liquid Love.
Speaking of The Beatles, one of my favorite songs by them is “Come Together.” The beat of that song is so good, and of course the speculated meanings of it referencing drugs are sure to get one thinking. But, whether it’s about drugs or overdosing, one thing that is apparent is it’s still a pretty timeless track.
