Happy Friday and welcome to the Holiday Weekend edition of Friday Night Tunes. This week we are getting a set of songs that are not quite like the others in this series. As always there is nothing in this post but some songs to get you moving for the weekend!
We kick things off with the Ting Tings and That’s Not My Name. I love this song for the drumbeats and the story it tells. I am horrible with names, so I usually just call people “Joelisa” when I can’t think of their real name, this is where I got that habit from.
Next up, a little bit of rap from Gym Class Heroes. Their song We Have To Take Our Clothes of (to have a good time). Not only are the lyrics of this song hilarious, but the video always makes me laugh. Be sure to watch for the guys dancing in animal costumes!
We’ll end tonight with a punk cover of Sixpence None The Richer’s “Kiss Me”. The band New Found Glory reimagined this song, and I actually like it better than the original. It has all the sweetness of the original, while cranking things up to 11.
So there you are, three songs to kick off the holiday weekend! What is on your minds tonight Firedogs? The floor is yours!
