This is Lupe’s haunting “Little Weapon.”
The music guy from Fall Out Boy produced.
I don’t know how to email you b/c I can’t remember your real name (I’m so sorry. I suck.) but I wanted to say thank you for your comment on the Waxing Off piece. I thought it would get a better response, since I wrote it at like 3 am and was laughing my ASS off. : )
So if you’d like to take this discussion to email, I’m at andrealeigh203 at gmail dot com
Ha! It’s okay.
Andie (female version), in all fairness, I thought the “Springtime for Lou Holtz” to be quite a jaunty tune and was singing along in my head as I read it. Yes, it was damned funny but I have a feeling only a small portion of Deadspin’s readership has actually seen The Producers. I will give you a +1 there.
Not exactly something I would proudly claim. Unless you’re aiming for the teenage market maybe.
And yet, Doug, it works. It really does. This is maybe my favorite cut off of that album.
So what I need for comments on 1520 is to compliment Andie? Huh.
I agree – this is one of my favorite tracks on the album… in steady rotation on my MP3 hot list
@DougOLis: I actually think it’s a testament to the guy’s production skills to say he worked for Fall Out Boy. Any band that reaches that level of play has a strong producer behind it. A lot of music is dependent upon the producer and I think we’re getting to a point where the best producers become recognizable artists themselves, Timbaland being the most prominent example. Also worth discussing is the deejay movement; with the assimilation of sampling and electronic techniques, production has become vastly more important. I look at it like Coppola directing Dracula in ’92, a true tribute to his virtuosity, with Keanu Reeves as the star. The film used only Classic Hollywood Era techniques, but had Keanu there to ensure a certain demographical draw.
Now if Lupe and come out with a track featuring Fall Out Boy then there’d be some ‘splaining to do.
