August is here and with all the heavy energies out there, seems like we’re in need of something light and joyful so I propose…MUSIC! That’s right, in this edition of SoundCloud Sunday (on a Wednesday), I’m promoting easy and fun music that will take the mind to higher places.
I’m gonna kick-off this edition with my current favorite song in heavy rotation on my iPod. It’s “Vacation” by Dirty Heads. This song even sounds like a vacation. Its starts with reggae-driven piano cords and catchy sing-song chorus featuring occasional horns, hand snaps and high-hat. The lyrics really put things in perspective: “I’m on vacation, every single day cause I love my occupation…If you don’t like your life then you should go and change it.” I truly love the ease of this song and hope you do too. So check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
My second SoundCloud selection is Kid The Wiz’s “Nancy”. This hip-hop mash-up feature Jon Bellons “He Is the Same,” “iRobot” and others mixes. It’s got the right balance of hip-hop and pop with synth board mix. I really love this party song. Click the link below.
