30 Songs – Unexpected

Sugar asked me to participate in a Thirty-day Song Challenge. Happy to join in with her and post more music. I’m going to alter my participation parameters a bit and only post after Sugar posts hers.

A song that no one would expect me to love. Meaning a song that had elements of the musical genres that I generally avoid, ending up with a space in my library. There are a handful of those.

Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc.

Electronic instrumentation? Check. Hip-hop beat? Check. Rap section? Check. Artificial artist? Check.

There’s every reason for me to not like this track. But I do. The whole thing works in a really strange way. Add to it the video, which has a segment that’s a Hayao Miyazaki film gone wrong, and you get one really odd duck of a song that I like.
