Everybody's clever nowadays.
Fleetwood Mac, which is appropriate I suppose.
@funfetti Yeah there is some debate in the YouTube comments section about this.
Just please let Nile Rodgers be on every pop song ever, grinning away to himself while the funk flows out of his fingers.
For the past four days, I've literally listened to nothing else but the original 60-second clip of this song, so it feels very bizarre to have a full version! Is this even the finished version? I have no idea, I'm just dancing.
@Decca IE OMG OMG OMG THE NEW DAFT PUNK WITH NILE RODGERS AND PHARRELL OMG OMG
Also, can I hijack a little corner of this post to talk about another piece of music news?
There was a letter in the Guardian last weekend complaining about his misogyny in a recent interview the paper ran with him, and the letter writer said: "May I suggest Snoop Sexist Pigg as a more appropriate rebranding for Snoop Dogg?"
I can't argue with the sentiment, but I've been laughing at "Snoop Sexist Pigg" for days.
@Decca And to add, obviously, but it bears repeating: my thoughts and prayers to everyone in the Boston area today. I'm lucky in that all the people I know in Boston are safe and relatively unharmed, but many many families haven't been so lucky. I am so, so sorry.
Christ, what the fuck. My own city's marathon was on yesterday and I was down at the beach watching it, having a great time. I then read in the newspaper this morning that a 23-year-old man had died during the marathon after going into cardiac arrest. As well as thinking about how awful it must be for his family, I've also been thinking on-and-off all day about the historical link between marathons and death. And now this. And I feel really, really upset about it, because of what's been on my mind all day and because the city of Boston was really good to me and because I know a lot of people who were running in the marathon today (all of whom are safe, thank God) and because fuck it all, what kind of a world do we live in.
