Motown is Back!

This song by Cee-Lo Green is awesome. Not only does it express a sentiment that most people can connect with, but the Motown beat is amazingly well done. (Uh … just don’t play this with kids in the room …)

What also makes it funny to me is that a month ago a record producer told a friend of mine that the old-school sound “doesn’t work anymore” and he ended up mixing her song with the typical 900 layers of noise that gets (0ver-)produced these days. Sorry, dude, Motown is a great sound – clear, distinct, every instrument discernible.

The man has some serious talent and range. There’s hope for the music industry after all
