Oh, I'm back everybody. :)
Black Eyed Peas - Boom Boom Pow
"Boom Boom Pow" sounds exactly like you think it would. It's ridiculous, fun music delivered in a fashion only will.i.am, Fergie and the gang could. It looks like 2009 will be just as vocoder-filled as 2008 was. It's sort of ironic how the BEPs are talkin' about the future of music and dropping beats and effects that have been working since 2005. Let's throw the question of originality out for a second (this is the Black Eyed Peas we're talking about here...) and just enjoy the song. You know you like the beat they drop halfway into the song.
Adele - Hometown Glory (Chewy Chocolate Cookies Remix)
I'll just say this now, I'm a big fan of Chewy Chocolate Cookies and I think their remixes are always incredible — their remix of Adele's "Hometown Glory" (such a great song) is no exception. The remix is probably the slowest I've ever heard them go, but it works with this track.
