Limelight/ Mark Ronson & The Business INTL – Bang Bang Bang

This song is genius! “Bang Bang Bang” gives tribute to an old French nursery rhyme called Alouette in a fun way. We’ve got Amanda Warner and Q-Tip contributing their fantastic vocals. Now I never new the nursery rhyme as much as I knew Frère Jacques but this still created an interesting concept for the song verses and video. The video started off with a cute commercial (with a little girl singing the Alouette nursery rhyme), an introduction-based interview of some sort, and then an almost futuristic action-related video.  It’s clearly better to see this for yourselves:

Much like last year’s Flosstradamus – Big Bills introducing me to Caroline Polachek from Chairlift, this song introduces us to Amanda Warner from MNDR. Some of you may have already heard of MNDR but until this song but I had no idea who they were! At first I thought it was just Amanda on her own but she works with Peter Wade to form an electronc duo. I highly recommend checking them out. One of their more known songs on hype machine seems to be I Go Away, which is almost too good for the end of the summer.
