Jiving on the positive energy coming outta the speakers here at the radio factory. Fitz and The Tantrums‘ album More Than Just a Dream came out back in May. the single “Out of My League” was decent single in Canada (though we didn’t whip it to hard at The Zone).
The new single is called “The Walker.” Boitano was hoping it was a Walking Dead tribute song… sadly (or thankfully) its not. Good energy, upbeat, you can tell this song makes people get their boogy on.
Now, I’ll always love you Beat 94-5, you have superior DJs and generally a better broadcast experience compared to most radio stations.
That said, Sirius Hits 1 plays this song pretty much twice an hour. No sane radio station should be burning songs this mental, but I am sure glad Sirius doesn’t care about convention and plays this song over and over and over and over… and you get the idea.
I don’t know why I love it so much. I was going to post the single cover for this song on my blog… but then I saw Nelly on the cover and I hated myself.
I guess the song makes me think of Coral. That is nice. I was thinking about her today in fact while the song played and she phoned me. Whoa, kismet. I told Coral about my cosmic experience but she didn’t look impressed. She said, “You know the song is about breaking up with your wife right?” hmmm.
02) The Daylights – “I Hope This Gets To You”
The cover art at the top is for this LA band that I also heard on Sirius Hits 1 between Nelly. I like that Hits 1 plays some modern rockish type songs between the pop. This is one of them.
They give me the expansive melodramatic feel of the Airborne Toxic Event. Speaking of the Airborne Toxic Event, I should put that song on. Damn they were good. Why they aren’t major rock stars is a tragedy.
The video gets viewed a bunch… and now they get played on the radio a half world away on the Zone. My bones tell me to not like this song, but I always sing along when I hear it. Whatever, I’m weak sometimes.
