Leave it to a music blog written by three dudes to totally forget that it’s freakin’ Valentine’s Day. The worst part is that Wes, our supposed trusted leader, is MARRIED! Had we remembered this nonsensical and most trivial of holidays before 10:30 AM the day of, we probably would have dedicated our patented Top Ten Thursday list to its honor. Disappointingly enough we also could have paired the list nicely and quite appropriately with our My Bloody Valentine review we posted earlier this week. However, since we did not think ahead to craft a new Valentine’s list, the MBV pairing is neither here nor there and we will simply re-post our list from last year later in the day. But for now, we leave you with about the only good thing that has really ever been associated with St. Valentine’s Day in our eyes (aside from a few on-point sitcom episodes here and there).
That of course is the incredibly funky track from Outkast’s (or Andre 3000′s as I see it) The Love Below. Not such a random holiday track when put into context that the entire album is essentially focused around the concept of love, but still a peculiar one nonetheless. Peculiarly excellent and creative however, as always with Andre Benjamin. Now to the point of this post: Cheers to all the love birds out there and please take time to enjoy on this day the one, the only, Andre 3000 as … CUPID! Happy Valentines Day!
