Monday Music Madness: “Giving Up the Gun” – Vampire Weekend & “Gorecki Fix Up My Girlfriend Some More” – Dan Black

22 Feb

We’ve featured Vampire Weekend here a lot. Let’s face it, they’re good. This song is off of their album “Contra”, which is on iTunes and in stores now. The Giving Up the Gun music video has a star-studded cast (RZA, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lil Jon & Joe Jonas) so it’s very entertaining. And the song’s great too:

We talked about Dan Black for some time now. As we expressed in our Next Big Band post, his sound is new and catchy. One thing I appreciate that he does, is he covers songs in a very unique way. Gorecki Fix Up My Girlfriend Some More is a cover of “Gimme Some More” by Busta Rhymes. You guys remember that song right? Check it out below:

Dan Black’s CD Un is available on iTunes.

Bonus:

Let’s face it Iyaz‘s “Replay” had us singing along with it by the time the song ended. But his new song Solo is just awful. This is a dumb follow-up to “Replay” but it’ll be overplayed on the radio. It’s just on here so we can eventually say “told you so”. Can’t wait:
