Earworm: “My Body” by Young the Giant

Nothing but good things have been spewing from the depths of Spotify’s radio station based off of artist Foster the People (except for the occasional Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj garbage due to Foster the People’s mainstream popularity).

My listening to Young the Giant is a byproduct of my listening to Foster the People. And I don’t regret it.

The song that’s been festering in my mind for a bit now is My Body.

On their Remix EP, the song is remixed by one of my favorite bands, Two Door Cinema Club.

Earworm: Lost in the Echo by Linkin Park

Okay, a first for me, and more to come in the future.

This is my first Earworm post chronicling my favorite band of all time. I’d held back on writing about them, for their songs are literally always stuck in my head. I know the lyrics to all the songs off of their 5 albums, trust me. The Big Cheese can attest to this.

But this one is special. Although it isn’t the first song I heard off the album (it would’ve been “Burn it Down”), it, for me, marked the return of Mike’s rap, something that has been gone for a while. It reared its head here and there, but in “Lost in the Echo,” it became obvious clear that Mike Shinoda still has the rhythm and rhyme.

During an assembly for school, a video was shown. The title intro song? LOST IN THE ECHO. I damn near just got up out of my seat, walked on stage, and started singing it. Wish I had.

Oh, and the music video just came out, about a month ago. It released as an interactive video. You linked your Facebook account to the video and the characters interacted with you, using your photos as the memories that were “lost in the echo.”
