(01:09:12) WhamBangThud: hookay
(01:09:48) ditriech: monna pomona is what I would describe as "hauntingly beautiful"
(01:10:04) ditriech: and scenic world is awesome, especially if you are familiar with the other version
This week, friends and compatriots, you get a special treat. Mostly due to my problems with indecision, but that’s not the important part! The important part is that you get two Beirut songs of the Weekend. And they are both by Beirut! It’s your lucky day!
Anyhoo, a little bit of a back story. A long, long time ago (read: sophomore year), I used to make mix cds for other people. Like a lot. So, with me telling everyone that I meet ever about how awesome Beirut is, I decided to make a mix cd with the songs that I think people who like life would like. Of course, I haven’t actually, you know, burned the cd or given it to anyonesd3, but two of the songs on there were your Beirut songs of the Weekend, the aforementioned "Scenic World [Lon Gisland EP]" and "Monna Pomona"
(02:14:06) WhamBangThud: The phrase of the week is hauntingly beautiful.
(02:14:10) WhamBangThud: Thanks to yourself
(02:14:29) ditriech: its been one of my favorites for a while
Scenic World [Lon Gisland EP]
Lon Gisland EP
If I had to pick the better song of the two, this is it. Not to say I didn’t enjoy the original version of "Scenic World" on Gulag Orkestar. But this version is amazingly good.
Have a good Weekend.
sd1: You see, during Bizzo’s last visit here, I connected my external to Biz’s laptop, and that’s how we listened to music. Apparently, if you have certain settings on your iTunes you keep every song that’s added to your library. So he has (had?) all my music. Which is interesting, because I have a very varied library. Which, actually, I plan on discussing at length at some point. But then again, I planned on being an astronaut too, and we see how well that’s going for me.
sd2: Ok, not really. But its pretty close. Most people that I get into conversations with, if we talk about music at all, Beirut comes up. Sometimes if we don’t even talk about music! I could be talking about either Beirut here, btb.
sd3: Until Now! WOOO!
