Song of the Day - Day 489

Today's song is...

Too Cool Girls

This is one of my favorite, if not my very favorite, instrumentals. I love that big swing band sound. The song sounds like it would be enormously fun to swing dance to, if one knew how to swing dance. The horn part is fun and lively and I have a pretty vivid image in my mind of those guys playing the song, that involves lots of swaying and dancing while they play. And both the bass and the drum parts are fantastic and very different from what you hear in most TMBG songs. That is what I so enjoy about the Battle of the Bands songs; that chance to hear the band try out a style outside their normal comfort zone. The musicians are so talented, it's great fun hearing them play outside the confines of rock n' roll.
