JoCo’s got it

I was going to make a post about how hip-hop is very postmodern with all the pastiche playing a heavy role, having been evolved quite literally out of sampling and recutting existing music and building from there, but there are plenty of other writers who have already done it better than I could in this space. Besides, I’d probably sound like a pretentious git.

Instead, I present you with this song, a classic by some definitions.

Sir Mix-a-Lot – Baby Got Back

(Keep an eye out for Cosmopygian and dorsum in the video)

Now for something completely different, but still a catchy and enduring song

Cass Elliot & John Denver – Leaving On A Jet Plane

Now for the synthesis, sort of. This may only makeĀ  sense in my own mind, but at worst, you’ve managed to listen to three great songs.

Jonathan Coulton – Baby Got Back
