I've been trying to figure out my favorite song from On the Sun
. Why? Because...I've run out of Video Kid material to analyze and have too much free time? (Free time?! Whahaha...what a concept this week.)
I've discovered that I cannot pick one. It is not possible. I will decide that Turn It Around is the one, then I will listen to So True and I change my mind. I've narrowed it down to Turn It Around, So True, Fire, Lets Get Down, You Get Me, Senegal Champions of Africa and On the Sun.
What does that say about the album that 7 out of the 11 songs are my favorite? Or what does it say about me that I can't decide?
I love the dedication from On the Sun
. Let me share with those poor souls who don't have the album (it is awesome! you really should ask for it for Christmukah.)
