My younger critics often urge me to post more contemporary musical interludes–and it’s true that my tastes range from about Bach and Mozart in the 1700s to Wayne Shorter in the 1960s. But I do have kids who for some strange reason would rather listen to contemporary pop than NPR when we’re driving around. So here’s a recent pop/rap song that I find super catchy, once you get past the inappropriate lyrics (and note that I’m posting the clean version!).
I especially like that little sax break that pops up every now and again, which sounds like it’s right out of a Hassidic wedding in Brooklyn. Yet somehow it works here!
