GUEST SPOT # 2 - Hot Chip - 'Over and Over'

Hot Chip - 'Over and Over' (2005)

This week's Guest Spot goes to geek lord, Neo:-

Picture this, I'm half way through a 10 hour flight after a 2 week holiday. I fell asleep watching random music videos and woke up in the middle of this really catchy song. When it finished I hoped to find out who it was, but alas nothing. I liked it so much that I decided to (try at least) stay awake until the loop came round again as the artist and title were shown at the start of the video. I failed and bizarrely woke up again at pretty much the same point in the song. When I arrived back home all I could remember were a couple of lines "Over & Over & Over & Over, Like a monkey with a miniature cymbal" I went onto the XFM website and posed the question on a forum. What is this song called containing those lyrics. I waited, and a few minutes later I had my reply. Success !!! Since that moment Hot Chip have been one of my favourite bands, one of many reasons being that they do amazing covers. Like Transmission & Sexual Healing.

Excellent track Neo-ahh! I never see you to tell u but check out UK mc, Dels. Joe Goddard, produces and stars on a few of his tracks. Really good beats and you may like what Dels has to say, being English and all that mate-ahh! Yes mate.
