Raise your hand if you like the title track to this album. Ok, let’s see…that’s 1…2…4…19…yes, I see you…456…9,689,231. (Man, a lot of people read this blog.) Make that 9,689,232 because I think this is my favorite album of the year.
I was a little late to the game finding Fun. – their upcoming concert at the Ryman was sold out before I even knew who they were. Sigh. They’ve gotten 6 Grammy nominations for this year – including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist. Hopefully, they will perform so I’ll be able to see them play.
Personally, I think the band is kind of a modern day Queen. Their album has an almost operatic opening track. I would call this style Drama Pop. Take a listen…
Isn’t that fun? Some Nights is actually the band’s second album. I may go back and try to find their first, Aim and Ignite from 2009, but I have a feeling if we didn’t hear it then it might not be worth hearing. Time will tell.
Man, I love that drum line. Makes you want to check out the whole album, doesn’t it?
PS This album is not on freegal (sigh) but you can download a knock off version of Some Nights as well as the version heard on Glee, just FYI. Or you can get all three to compare and contrast.
