The Beat That My Heart Skipped

Posted by shanoah on October 8, 2008

And it tanks, and tanks, and tanks. It went down 508 points yesterday; wonder how much today?

And, of course, there’s the question of what else is going on, while all eyes are on the economy and the election…

Today, though, I wanted to play a song by Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, a pair that I’ll likely be playing more of in the future.

 'The Beat That My Heart Skipped' - Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip

The duo are from Essex. And, if nothing else, this song is certainly infectious. Part of this, of course, is due to the speed in which things fly by. If you’re having trouble catching all the lyrics with how fast Scroobius talks, here’s a copy. After all, they are pretty impressive:

Every now and then I cower and I need to find empowerment
Empowerment is paramount to how I can begin to mount
A plan that I can implement
to make a dent on ignorance
Instead of drunk belligerence
and the dissidence of miscreants
Especially in this instance
with the never ending persistence
to use the words in each sentence
as if they were blunt instruments
to beat a hole in the defence
of this beauty and her innocence
which serves to just build resistance
in spite of all my good intents.

Of course, I was likely sold the moment I saw that cool beard…
