Music Monday: AKA – Woohoo!

Hey, you know, not everything in life is great but sometimes you just have to forego the ruttin’ moping around and find your own reason to be happy.  After all, what’s life without a little Woo and some Hoo?

Okay, technically this is called “Song 2” but I’m sure there’s a large percentage of people who only know this as Blur’s “Woohoo song” and that’s alright with me.  I’m sure the music snobs will say otherwise and remonstrate people for not apprising themselves of the proper titles of songs but those snobs also want us to know who wrote it, where they did, when they did, why it was written, what the various version were like, and precisely how long after the songwriter’s bowel movement before it was completed.  So, really, sod those music snobs!  Their trivial expertise will not impeded my ability to enjoy a damn song.

“Song 2” was entirely overplayed in its day (including by some skinny pubber who put it on the jukebox almost every time he was playing pool) but I think it’s okay to haul it out in 2011.  If you don’t think you’ve got a reason for a “Woohoo!” of your own, just remember: you’re reading because you’re alive.  If that’s not enough for you then maybe you should stop being an ungrateful little bastard and start being happy that you’re not not dead.  Before we play the track [Editor: You’re not a real DJ, you know?] [Angelo: You’re not a real editor, you know?], here’s a little warm up which also let’s you know Blur could actually play their own songs.

Crazy, huh?

And, now, a reason to shake your moneymaker.

I leave you with the immortal words of the ancient Mongol leader Genghis Khan who said: “Peace, yo!”  I’m paraphrasing, a little.
