We’ve all played the “M.F.K” game before — where you’re given the names of three people either famous or familiar and you have to decide which one you want to put a ring on, which one gets the bang bang bang, and which once gets kilt like Beyonce did at the Superbowl halftime show?
Well this is exactly the same kinda game, except with new music. I give you three songs, and all you have to do is leave a comment below and tell tell me which one you LOVE, which one you’re LUSTING after right now, and which one’s GOTTA DIE.
Of course, we’re always looking for reader submissions — so if there’s a track you’ve recently heard and you kinda like it, or you seriously love it, or you have it stuck in your head to the point where you absolutely HATE IT — find a YouTube and email me the link and I’ll post it up here as soon as I can.
And I bet a bunch of you are like “Let me send in that new sexy sexy Prince track that leaked the other day, because that song is fiyah.”
Don’t worry baby, Hex gotcha covered.
Of course knowing the family around here, that makes everything else sort of a race for second place — which is fine because January/February is usually a pretty slow time for new music. So much so that a lot of artists, even ones that people like are choosing to hold back on new albums and just leak tracks rather than get caught with the stigma of being a first of the year release.
Which is probably why this “Thrift Shop” mess is now considered the #1 song in the land right now (not to influence your votes or anything — but if this is a number one chart-topper, I’ll stay listening to death metal at work thank you very much).
Anyways, lets get this going.
Listen to all the tracks, and then in the comments tell me which one you like the best. And remember, YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE!
Mackelmore — Thrift Shop
Kendra Morris — Shine on You Crazy Diamond
(The movie looks good, but I suspect this Pink Floyd cover is making it seem better)
Prince — Breakfast Can Wait
(Let’s see how long this video lasts, Prince’s lawyers are pretty aggro about taking stuff down)
