Let me take you back to a time when I actually had a lot of friends and knew of at least 3 things going on every night. During those glorious days of yesteryear, we would regularly take my friends ’66 Roadrunner convertible to Mill Ave. and go cruisin’ blasting whatever song was in the Top 40 because yes, we were just THAT COOL. C’mon, I know you’ve been there too. Some songs are just so ghetto-groove-tastic that head bobbing in the car to the beat is as vital as breathing.
Breathe easily my Ragers, “Certified” by Calvin Harris is certifiably one of those treasured songs. Is it certified because the initial vibes at the beginning keep rotating from left to right until you feel as if you’re enveloped by them? No. Is it due to the fact that at the 1:50 mark, a sick electric-bubble-buzz sound develops that goes straight to your head and takes over your brain? Maybe. Is it the result of a sick bass, which is almost a slap bass acoustic timbre, vibrates through your being until your spine turns into Jell-O? Possibly. For moi, it’s all of these and more reasons as to why I firmly believe that “Certified” MUST become your new beat-bumpin’ tune. Cheerlubber herself attested to me yesterday that she may be developing an unhealthy addiction to it, we’ll see if we can get her some help with that.
With the coming of fall, this song is requisite for any and all road trips, especially with the windows rolled all the way down!! Peace out foo.
