Here is my complete list to this point.
The words to describe just how I feel about this record – as well as about this band in general – are hard to come by. I’ve already included ‘There Goes The Fear’ from The Last Broadcast in my 1K, and a few other songs from it may eventually make their way into this list. The driving beat in this song will never grow old and the simple rhythm guitars are just wonderful in composing the melody of the tune. ‘Pounding’ is about fleeting moments, and making the most of the time you have. I can’t think of a better way to make the most of my time than by listening to music from this incredible band.
If somehow you find yourself unaware, this song is technically a cover. The man whose lovely voice you hear in the chorus and playing the pleasing guitars is Cody Chesnutt, the original author of this song. The Roots essentially reworked the song a bit and upped the tempo, but it is kept mostly intact from Chesnutt’s original. Delightfully seedy in lyrical content, this is just an immensely satisfying song.
