Hot Chip-Over And Over
We all have our own specific musical preferences in the Infidel household.
9 year old Buster likes to get down and groove to a rousing chorus of 'Doo-Doo's' in his music. Naturally, he counts The classic Police song, "De Doo Doo Doo De Da Da Da," and Suzanne Vega's Doo-Doo filled song "Tom's Diner," among his favorites. The reigning Prince of pop in Turkey, Tarkan, even has an entire song in Persian called "Dudu." Buster loves that one best of all. He's so multi-cultural in his Doo-Doo love. Don't substitute crappy Green Day "Dookie," for Doo-Doo in Buster's music rotation though.
10 year old Monkey fills with unbridled delight when the pop stars of today and yesterday spell out the words in their songs. Thanks Gwen Stefani, Bay City Rollers, and Fergie!
11 year old Sunbum prefers a 'Na Na Na' beat in her music. Journey followed her musical specifications perfectly in their song, "When The Lights Go Down In The City," which etches the 'Na Na Na' record of 2 whole minutes! British band, Kaiser Chiefs, has an entire song dedicated to nothing but the smooth, delicious sound of the 'Na Na,' called, what else?, "Na Na Na." When Sunbum feels desperate for her 'Na Na Na' fix she'll even resort to 50's doo wop group Sha-Na-Na.
7 year old Caterpillar moves her spirit fingers when a good old-fashioned hand clapping song fills the air. Yes, indeed, that girl loves the clap. Well, not 'The Clap, mind you. The creme de la creme of her playlist include Scissor Sister's clappy "Don't Feel Like Dancing," and some vintage clap that can be heard in Rose Royce's "Car Wash."
This 32 year old cracker has a fever though. The fever that only the sharp ping sound of the magnificent cowbell can cure. I'm all about the cowbell. I practically burst with excitement when the 80's station plays the opening strains of Loverboy's "Everybody's Working For The Weekend." Nothing but pure cowbell joy, baby! Hot Chip's "Over And Over," is the featured Infidel 'Gotta Have Mas Cowbell,' song of the month. No, maybe the millennium! This song is so catchy. We listen to it over and over and over and over, like a monkey with a miniature cymbal! Morning, noon, or night, the time is always right for a dose of cowbell.
