"I Belong With You, You Belong With Me, You're My Sweetheart"

If there's one thing I refuse to be ashamed of, it's being late on posting a pop hit. As much as I try to be omnipresent and post music from a wide range of genres, y'all know my bread and butter is Hip Hop and now recently, EDM. That being said, I love great music and if it doesn't fit inside the usually categories I post, I don't have the slightest issue with grabbing and posting songs that move me...

...which is exactly the effect that @thelumineers song Ho Hey had on me. Considering the track is now in the top 10 iTunes singles tells me that it has taken a while to sprout wings and catch on. To give some context, the video for the track below was released back in April...

It's not easy to do folk rock on a pop level, so when a group manages to do it right, it really comes off well. From the beginning of the track I was immediately reminded of Kurt Cobain and maintain that lead singer Wesley Keith Schultz could probably sing a wicked cover of Where Did You Sleep Last Night with his raspy voice. In short, the playful, sing-songy, happy-go-lucky vibe of the track is infectious and resonated with me. It's not usually what I post, but if you're reading this, you're as open minded as me when it comes to music, so you won't mind...#GoodMusicKnowsNoGenre
