It’s time for the second edition of my newest weekly feature here on The Nest, Mecca Muzak Mondays! Each Monday, as those of you 9-5’ers are dragging your carcasses back to work, I will try to brighten up your mood by featuring one of the many wonderful songs I have learned of only through it’s inclusion on the Mecca in-store muzak CD. Most of the songs I will be featuring have been released only within the last couple years, and many are not well known pop hits that have already worn out the speakers in your radio.
For today’s entry, I’m going to flashback to the CD that was getting spun to death in fine Mecca stores last summer. It was heavy on Beach Boys and other summer-themed oldie songs, but it also had quite a few hidden gems in its playlist… and one of them was a nifty little synth ditty called “Carried Away” by the band Passion Pit.
It sucks that this song usually played while my crew was on lunch since it’s so fun to listen to!
The band Passion Pit hails from the Boston area, and its name is a slang term for a drive-in. You know what went on at those drive-ins back in the day. Heck, I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the local drive-in…… it’s where my parents met while they were both working there in high school. What were you thinking, anyway?
Hope you enjoyed this week’s Mecca Muzak! And since I can’t see the band name without thinking of Pit from the 8-bit classic Kid Icarus….
Wow, I had forgotten about that game! 🙂
Thanks for the Monday tune, too.
I guess I will make a note to do a post on Kid Icarus sometime!
I filled up a notebook page with future Monday feature songs, so I should be able to start off Monday the right way for a long time…
Cat in the box. I got to go, I have a date with Super Mario.
Is Luigi not good enough for you?
He just maka the pizza’s….
Mama Mia! What’s a paisano gotta do to get a princess?
Mushrooms. Every princess loves mushrooms.
hahaha, yes what rhymes with hug me? The squirrel in the skirt looks promising :o)
MBRS is quite the tease. As if dogs needed another reason to chase squirrels!
Trivia just doesn’t get better than this. I have been living in the Boston area for more than 30 years and did not know such a gem was right here under my nose. Wow. I think you just rocked my world!
Woohoo! It’s mind boggling just how much great music there is out there to be discovered… even in our own backyard!
Great clip and why does MBRS make me think of our Chrissy? Don’t answer that. LOL. 😀
LOL… I looked it up and I think I know what you’re talking about!
