The Car Game.

If you happen to be following me via Twitter, then you already know that today’s loop was at the mercy of God… err radio programmers. See, I decided to play a game of sorts. I declared that I’d base my loop off of whatever song was playing on the radio when I started my car. It’s sort of like playing Russian Roulette… without the guns and bullets.

It could have been ugly. Knowing my wife drove the car last, the dial could have been left anywhere. I expected the worst. Some Creed. Perhaps some Carrie Underwood. You just never know. I guess that’s the excitement.

To my joy, as I turned the key, I heard a familiar drum beat. Some super slick production. And vocals that had a slight hint of Mouseketeer. Awh yes, it was Justin Timberlake’s, “Like I Love You”.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like this song. Actually, I own the album. Produced by The Neptunes and Timabland, it’s a surprisingly funky and soulful debut record for someone who used to look like this.

Loop #48

For this loop, I decided to slow things down just a bit and leave a little more space. The tuning and production is very similar, with lots of high pitched, ringy snare drum and a dash of heavily compressed room sound mixed in.
