Hi there, Dr. Whuzzerface here!
I hope you all got a hint that yesterdays BabyMetal post was somewhat of an April Fools joke, right? (Although I must confess, when they switch over to the rap part, they were totally adorable!) That being said, I would like to introduce to you the first OFFICIAL music post of Raging Contagion. I was gretting all weekend about what would be the best foot to start off on and was so overwhelmed I finally just hit “Random” on my favorites playlist and what came up was so perfect, I can only attribute it to divine inspiration.
With a song like this in your arsenal, however, you can conquer AN-Y-THING (including those awful Mondays we just had to face)! The artist Gotye (pronounced “Go-tee-ayh”) has been a hot item recently from his oh-so-brilliant song “Somebody That I Used To Know” which was covered by, and succinctly went YouTube viral, Walk Off The Earth. “Learnalilgivinanlovin” from the album Like Drawing Blood is totally opposite of “Somebody”.
The song starts off with a motown drum intro combined with harmonized “oohs/aahs” (I can just imagine the backup dancers for this!), layering in tambourines, horns and then gets into the good stuff. This song is about learning how to give, how to love, and how to live. Don’t wait to play this and make sure to turn it up, it will get you moving!
