Something’s in the air?

Posted by shanoah on June 23, 2009

Ah, so that’s where you’d gotten to, Sean. You’ve been playing a teenage machine gunner while I was playing Teenage Prostitute. Ah well, it happens.

So now you’ve played Daft Punks Superheroes. And you know, I remember the post you did about Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. You talked a lot about music sampling in relation to it[1]. And having heard Superheroes, I think it’s a good time to play Barry Manilow. Specifically, Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed?.

You heard the lyrics at the beginning, right?

I hope so, since Daft Punk repeated them over and over again in Superheroes.

And now you know what it takes to get me to play Barry Manilow on the blog. And here I was thinking of playing the Mama’s and the Papa’s as the likely consequence of a Teenage Prostitute and Easy Meat. Or just more Frank Zappa.

Perhaps next time.

[1] Which is one reason why I remembered it. I like that sort of thing.
