song of the day - 10.30.08: cool kids - gold and a pager

I have to confess: I'm kind of obsessed with this song by The Cool Kids at the moment. I have trouble explaining why. The beat is minimalist, the rhymes are clever but not amazing, and the "chorus," if you can call it that, is just a slowed down voice saying, "With a little bit of gold and a paaaager." But I'll be damned. This song is ridiculously addictive. There's some quality about it that makes it so interesting. Maybe it's how the MCs pronounce their words in such a saracstic tone. Maybe it's the homage to a bygone, happier era in hip hop music. I don't know, but I like it.
