When in Rome, do as the Romans….

and on Friday’s freak what you heard……

That’s correct. Today’s feature is Blackstreet’s No Diggity. One of my all time favorite tracks. If you don’t like it, than I don’t like you….just kidding….but sort of also serious because it is plain and simple a great song. While it ranked 91st on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Pop Songs of all time, it ranks number 1 or at least number 3 in my heart. Any song that rocks Dr. Dre and a remastered Bill Wither’s beat is legit (also featured on Girl Talk’s “Feed the Animals). Obviously this song is the MAIN focus, but I am also posting a cover of No Diggity that I LOVE, by the Klaxons, a London based indie pop/punk band that has produced amazing tracks such as Gravity’s Rainbow and Magick. While it doesn’t stray too far from the original it does offer some witty sparks of originality.

Finally in closing…..I like the way you work it….no diggity.

LISTEN TO THEM!
