In my May 2020 post about the Morcheeba song “Otherwise,” I tell how I heard of the group and found the British electronic trio’s fourth studio album, Charango. Please check out that post and song while you’re visiting.
Today’s selection ventures into a genre I know almost nothing about, rap. The album title track “Charango” features American producer and rapper Pace Won (Jerome Derek Hinds Jr.). I had a fascinating, in-depth explanation from one of our lads about rap, as well as the meaning of DAMN., an album by American rapper, songwriter and producer Kendrick Lamar. I suggested he should do a guest post sometime after he told me all about the album and the song “DUCKWORTH.”
As I mention in the above-referenced post, the two-CD set of Charango includes a full version of with all the vocals removed. It’s intriguing to listen to the backing tracks without the familiar voices my brain expects to hear. I’m not aware of any other albums that have been released that way. It’s a solid album and today’s song is a great one.
Now you know a little about why this is My Song of the Day for Today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
Here is the audio from Morcheeba’s official YouTube channel:
