Song of the Week

Have ever had an experience in which you've heard a song from a group that you are luke-warm to, but the song all of the sudden makes you a big fan of the group? This happened to me with the band "The Kooks." The Kooks are an indie rock band, that probably has some power-pop influences to them. Initially, their songs sound a little to "happy," or at least that's what I thought. Sure, I could listen to them, but I never really felt like I had to dive deeper into this band ... until!

"Always Where I Need to Be" is a tune that sounds similar to some of Rooney's remarkably addicting songs. The song has a great opening riff, good vocals, a "doo-doo-do-do" chorus that refuses to leave your skull, even long after the song is over. My god, I could listen to this song for an hour straight.

Just a fun, song - check it out below, and tell me you're not tapping your toes.

Ewww. That sounds too "happy" for me.
