BroBomb: Come in; come in. Take a seat anywhere you’d like.
Ski Community: What’s going on here?
Just remember you’re surrounded by people who care for you and want the best for your life.
IS THIS AN INTERVENTION!?!?
Yes, just sit down and listen to what we have to say. We have gone through the pain of listening to your terrible music in edits and movies for years and years. It’s gotten to the point where it’s destructive.
NO, I’m out of here! (BroBomb grabs a handful of tall-T and wrestles the confused giant back to the couch)
Listen! You have to hear this. Ok, we care for you deeply, but your addiction to crappy, overused music has gone on long enough. It all started years ago when we had to hear Swollen Members in every soundtrack, then when we thought there was hope, you began using your friends…Tired Eyes, Son Real, All-Star, etc. At this point we realized that denial would not solve this problem.
Now your friend Newschoolers hasn’t helped over the years; he’s been an enabler. We didn’t warn you early enough about that toxic relationship. He introduced you to Biggie and MGMT and you’ve been hooked on their tracks ever since. We plead with you to stop solely getting your musical highs from Newschoolers.
Finally, as we watched Rastafarian culture and Cali P become the gateway drug to Dubstep, we knew it was time to step in. Please get help. There are resources out there that would love to help like Pitchfork, SPIN, Paste, and now us. We’re going to keep you accountable and provide some help on a regular basis. Will you make the change?
I’ll try! Thanks for being there…you’re a true Bro!
[End scene, and roaring applause!]
Below is our first set of songs we recommend for your next edit/webisode/movie. Use them sparingly and come back for more, as the Soundtrack Intervention will continue all season long.
The Drums: Let’s Go Surfing
All last season I planned to use this song in a fun powder edit, but I realized I don’t get to ski powder much in the East. Just imagine seeing pow butters, pillow slashes, and just carefree cruising to this post-punk meets Beach Boys sound.
Twin Shadow: Castles in the Snow
We all know skiing park looks great with some electronic music or a new wave 80s sound, but we all know the same songs get used over and over again; e.g. MGMT and Justice. Give Twin Shadow a try for your next smooth park edit and then get the album Forget because it’s my favorite album of 2010.
The Strokes: Hard To Explain
Apparently The Strokes are back together and have new album slated for spring 2011. So, be the first to use The Strokes in an edit and don’t be late to the revival. This track would work best in one of those “fun” park edits full of taps, spread eagles, and cigarettes.
