I wonder if there’s something with Latin American culture that leads to this genre of nonsense songs. Tongo is from Peru while the infamous “Chacarron Macarron” comes from a Panamanian artist. The thing I like about Tongo more is that he puts a distinctive Hispanic twist to his songs and is very self aware of his ridiculousness rather than playing it straight.
“Here I Come” – Soul City – I found this song from a Youtube Grammarly commercial of all things. It’s 70’s motown enough to be real catchy (definitely getting cues from “Ain’t No Mountain” and the Supremes)
“Beatophone” – Caravan Palace – mmm that’s some good beats if I do say so myself (and I do say so)
“Lune de Papier” – Andrea Lindsay – I like the combination of French and English. It reminds me a bit of Mother Falcon. The circus beat really reminds me of another band who I can’t remember for the life of me.
“Pictures of Lily” – The Who – Maggie, the contestant producer, would keep referencing this song when she called up my name, but I only just now remembered to look it up. I don’t really like this much – The Who’s definitely done better stuff. It’s also definitely about masturbation which is mildly uncomfortable, especially given feels about being a media object >_>”
Stay musical, my friends.
