The first few seconds of this track always put a smile on my face. Lifted off their debut project, Toploader’s classic from February 2000 serves as our #TBT record of the week.
Still revisiting albums from my college days, this week’s #TBT record comes from Cali Punk Rockers, Rancid. “Time Bomb” served as the second single off their classic “…And Out Come The Wolves” project and was released back in November 1995.
This week I’ve been listening to albums from my college years. Most of the catalogue consisted of artists on Decaydance (or DCD2 Records, as it’s now known as), so Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Gym Class Heroes, The Academy Is…, Cobra Starship and The Hush Sound, amongst others. A lot of these artists still get a lot of spins to this day, but none more so than GCH. Off their incredible sophomore project, “The Papercut Chronicles“, here’s the second single from 2005. Check it out up top, and be sure to check the album out.
Let’s not pretend. When James Blunt dropped “You’re Beautiful“, you couldn’t help but sing along. Say what you want about the record now, it’s a classic. This weeks TBT isn’t that song (clearly), but it’s another one of his gems. “1973” served as the lead single from his sophomore project, “All The Lost Souls” and was released back in July 2007.
With Gorillaz’ highly-anticipated “Humanz” project dropping tomorrow, this week’s #TBT comes from the virtual band. A personal favourite, “Stylo” sees the band team up with veteran singer/songwriter Bobby Womack and legendary rapper Mos Def. The track was released back in February 2010 and served as the lead single off their third project, “Plastic Beach“. Peep the visuals up top, and be sure to get your copy of “Humanz” when it drops tomorrow.
Once again, the incredibly talented Brandy Norwood provides up with our #TBT record of the week. Taken from her album of the same name, “Afrodisiac” served as the second single and was released back in September 2004.
Classic. And a record that inspired one of the greatest artists of our generation. Chaka Khan’s 1985 single serves as our #TBT record of the week. The track is lifted off her 1984 album, “I Feel For You“.
This record is without doubt, a classic. “Simon Says” served as the lead single off Pharoahe Monch’s incredible debut set, and was released back in 1999. Give the record a spin up top, and be sure to check his “Internal Affairs” project.
Huntington Beach’s hellogoodbye provide us with our #TBT record of the week. “Baby, It’s Fact” served as the second single off their debut album, “Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!” and was released back in September 2007.
Can you believe this track is 12 years old? To this day, this is one of my favourite tracks by Trey Songz. Lifted off his incredible debut, “I Gotta Make It“, “Gotta Go” served as the second single and was released back in July 2005. Peep the visuals up top, and if you haven’t already, check the album out here.
