The song that has been on my brain the most this week:
“I Was Zapped By The Lucky Super Rainbow,” The Flaming Lips, from the soundtrack of the 2007 film “Good Luck Chuck.”
I haven’t done a FFT in awhile, but this seems like the perfect time to bring back this semi-regular BAM’s Blog feature.
Oklahoma Rock Newsblog earlier this week posted the music video to “I Was Zapped By The Lucky Super Rainbow,” which was recently unearthed from the Lips’ vaults. It’s been in my head ever since, and I have thoroughly enjoyed that particular ocular experience. It is the perfect anthem for the Friday of an overly long and completely zany work week. I recommend you play it over and over today to get yourself revved for the weekend.
Also, the Oklahoma Rock Newsblog (If you aren’t following this blog as well as BAM’s Blog, really guys, why not?) reports that the Lips appeared on an episode of the children’s TV series “Yo Gabba Gabba!” that premiered this morning on Nickelodeon. The OKC psychedelic rockers seem like a perfect fit for the show, which has featured famous musical guests ranging from Sugarland to Of Montreal to Shiny Toy Guns. The Lips performed “If I Was a Frog” from their 2009 double-album “Embryonic” on the Nick Jr. show.
Look for the Lips’ episode of “Yo Gabba Gabba!” to rebroadcast at some point on Nick or Nick Jr. If there’s one thing I’ve learned since we resubscribed to cable a couple of years ago after a decade-long hiatus, it’s that Nick tends to rebroadcast its preschool shows ad nauseam. I’m pretty sure my almost-4-year-old has some episodes of “Spongebob Squarepants” and “Team Umizoomi” memorized.
