Best Song Ever (this week): R. Kelly vs. Broken Social Scene

posted by on July 31 at 11:39 AM

This may be old news for some of you, but I didn’t get the pleasure until yesterday, and boy was I pleased. Someone has masterfully mixed my favorite Broken Social Scene track, “7/4 (Shoreline),” with R. Kelly’s “I’m a Flirt,” and the product may just be better than the ingredients. Part of the great energy in “Shoreline” is the 7/4 time signature, which makes the song always feel like it’s tumbling over itself. Whoever mashed up the two did a great job of splicing the sample so it matches the 4/4 beat in “Flirt” without losing the momentum the original track had. If someone made a whole album that sounded like this combination I think I’d have a new favorite genre of music. That’s why this is the Best Song Ever (this week).
