So, my blogging has been, well… non-existent for the past few days. I’ve been caught up writing research papers for my finals. The paper I wrote last night on Misogyny & Hip-Hop was quite a lengthy paper, and I even opened up about how I just sort of fell out of love with hip-hop. That deserves another blog post, but the title of that paper alone gives you an idea of how much research and arguing I had to do. So blogging has been on the back burner these past few days.
But once I saw that Futurecop! released a new music video for their song “The Only Way,” I knew I had to post it on my blog. I had been craving some good 80s inspired music, so I was glad that Keenhouse teamed up with Futurecop! to pump out a totally 80s track, “The Only Way.”
The track is sort of the perfect anthem for summertime, especially when you watch the video and think about those dull part-time jobs at the local mini-golf. But a good song has a great way of taking a boring job or task and making even more enjoyable.
The music video for “The Only Way” keeps it simple by letting the music shine and showing a girl dancing, having fun, and just getting into that summery vibe. Oh, and the video was filmed on location at Golf N’ Stuff (you might remember it from The Karate Kid).
If you know anything about the UK synthpop duo Futurecop! then you know that they have this awesome 80s inspired synthpop sound.
I’m a huge fan of a lot of their tracks and 80s mashup videos on YouTube, so I’m glad to see the duo release a new music video that captures the sound of the 80s.

While we’re in the spirit of the 80s, I might as well post the latest free download: Futurecop! – “Into The Future” (Sammy Bananas Strobelight Remix)
