Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which will feature songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
The Bird and the Bee, Polite Dance Song.
Bossy and her friend Martha fell head first for this smart, cute-as-buttons duo The Bird and the Bee with songs from their 2007 release such as Again & Again, Fucking Boyfriend, and La La La.
But recently one of Bossy’s other friends had the chance to catch the band at SXSW, and he couldn’t say enough about their dynamic live show — and before Bossy knew it, she had lost an afternoon and part of the next day to stalking vocalist Inara George on YouTube.
This song, on their latest CD Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future, jumped out at Bossy. It’s almost cartoon factory-like in the production and assembly of sounds, but then out of the blue, the chorus’ chord progression throws Bossy to her knees. In a good Maybe I’m Amazed way, of course.
Plus, Bossy is always a sucker for a well-placed beep-beep, and in this case it happens toward the end of the song. Decent hand-clapping never killed anyone either.
