Funky Pretty…

26 Jun

Funky, pretty instrument. Gimme summa dat.

You know what my favorite self-created genre is? “Songs That Make Me Want To Learn Unusual Instruments”

I don’t usually listen to Top 40 dance music, but “Stereo Love” really caught my ear. How did they make an accordion sound so hip? So vibrant? I associate the instrument with old men, like Hans from “The Book Thief” or the street performers with monkeys in hats and vests- not clubbing music.

But as happy as I am for the accordion’s recent fame, I’m still waiting for the didgeridoo and hurdy gurdy’s day in the melody- simply so I can use those words again in future posts because those names make me laugh.

Currently listening to: the sound of the waves, I’m next to the beach
