Two Happy Songs I Can’t Get Out of My Head

Dr Dog’s “Broken Heart” and William Onyeabor’s “Atomic Bomb.”

Dr Dog is doing an Edward Sharpe-y  infectious upbeat unconventional roots-pop thing and William Onyeabor is a Nigerian disco-funk master from the 1970s who just released the only official collection of his works to come out in the 21st century.

If “Broken Heart” really is about a break-up it’s the peppiest, happiest breakup song there ever was.

And I could play “Atomic Bomb” endlessly. It has a mix of reggae/ethereal holy roller soul vocals overlaid on this incredibly trippy psychedelic dancehall beat. Pretty much the perfect backdrop for anything you might be doing this fine January Tuesday.

Enjoy.
