Song of the day: The New Pornographers - "Sing Me Spanish Techno"
A couple of weeks ago I played you a song by The New Pornographers. They're a band whose music I like in inverse proportion to their name (i.e., love the music, hate the name). It prompted me to go back and listen to the band's back catalogue, and as I listened to it I thought "Yep – I gotta buy those albums." So I did. Even the two latest ones that I didn't enjoy very much, I thought "Well, I'm a completist – I should buy those as well." So I did.
Anyway, the upshot of the above paragraph is my renewed love of The New Pornographers, and my desire to play you another song by them:
The New Pornographers - "Sing Me Spanish Techno" (2005)
I absolutely adore the song's mid-section (from 1:13), where they sing "Travelling at godspeed...". Love it, love it, love it.
