366 Songs 114: Fitta Happier

I’m tempted to just say “This” and leave it as that, as if no other kind of explanation is necessary, but… More than the rap from Guilty Simpson or MED (Although, man: rhyming “humorous” with “A lot of MCs got one style/Me? I got numerous” is awesome), this track from Quakers is all about finding a purpose for the great riff that was Radiohead’s “The National Anthem” from Kid A (the riff is great, the rest of the original song less so), especially when it’s translated into the marching band arrangement. Horns, you sound so good like that.

(Another plus: This is a short track! Less than three minutes, just enough time to get in, be great, and get out before you get bored. More pop songs need to do this.)
