“Beat City” – Flowerpot Men

Beat city

I watch you tumble down

One thing that you’ll learn about me as we progress here is that I’m a sucker for any sort of surf guitar situation.  The first 30 seconds of this song are just how I like it.  You may recall this tune from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  That’s certainly the only place I’ve ever heard it.  This song is nowhere to be found for (legal) download on the internet.

Some good ’80s fun overall, but I have to admit that this one gets pretty grating around 2:08.  That’s New Wave for you: a mixed blessing.  Catchy music comes with a side of whiny vocals.  The awesomeness of the hook mostly makes up for it.  I will be blasting this if I ever have occasion to drive into downtown Chicago in a Ferrari.  So probably next summer.

Don’t take this one too seriously.  Just a little Wednesday somethin’ for ya.
