366TAS: 5:03 – MGMT – Kids

If mom were a Corsairs Affairs reader, today’s 5:03 song would have been “The Happy Birthday Song” by Andrew Bird because today is, in fact, mom’s birthday. Happy birthday, mom! But alas, she’s not and besides, I think Andrew Bird has better offerings to showcase. We might see him later…

MGMT, on the other hand, may not have a better song than “Kids”. The song’s success, which included a #46 ranking in Rolling Stone’s top 100 songs of the decade, propelled MGMT’s 2008 album Oracular Spectacular to gold status in the US and plenty of accolades, both for the year and the decade. And to tie it all back to mom, she likes browsing pictures of me from back in the days when I was a child, crawlin’ on my knees. I like to think I’m still making her proud, even if my voice is occasionally too loud… Just listen to the song already!

    Great song, but two other close alternatives would be “Electric Feel” (3:49) or “Time To Pretend” (4:21).
