Hey gang, it’s Hex. I’m looking to get a new feature off the ground here at the mothership, and I could use your help.
The concept is simple: We all know that game “M.F.K” — where you take three names and decide which ones you would marry, fugg, or kill until it’s all the way dead? Why don’t we try that with music?
There’s always new tunes around — and while we do our best to cover it on Tuesdays, the focus there has always been on albums, which the staff makes sure to examine from cover to cover. But what about those singles that are running around — the one-off downloads, the tracks that you end up taking home from the club on CDs with sharpie handwriting on them, or just that song you heard somewhere and had to find out what it was?
Are these flash in the pan hits that you want to just rip off your clothes and get all slinky with right now? Is it the kind of musical trend that marks the impending doom of society as we know it? Or do you want to take this song to meet your parents and then pick out china patterns with it because you’re sure you’ll be listening to it forever?
Here’s where I need your help though — I can’t listen to every song out there, and you guys already know if you leave it up to me long enough I’ll just start posting 15-minute prog-metal jams. So if there’s a track you heard and you kinda like it, or you seriously love it, or you absolutely HATE IT — find a YouTube link to it email me the link and I’ll do my best to post it up here.
Then we’ll let the OHN family have at it in the comments.
We’ll start things off easy with three tracks that have been buzzing in and out of my headphones a lot this past week, either because people have been urging me to hear them or because Spotify’s algorithms think I’ll like them based on everything else I listen to. I actually really dig one of these tracks, but I’m fairly undecided about the other two.
Your part is simple. Listen to the three tracks, and then in the comments tell me which one you’d marry, which one you’d fugg, and which one you’d kill.
Static Revenger/Richard Vission ft. Luciana — “I Like That”
