SHAZAM!

So, the Esquire video, with thanks to Kathleen for uploading it to YouTube.



Yes yes, the dude is hot but what the hell is the music? Armitage Besotted asked and I didn't have an answer beyond "the song NPR uses as bumper music." So Servetus suggested I use Shazam, which I'd never heard of before, and it had the answer in a matter of seconds. Where has this app been all my life?

So...Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers are taking us out with "Moanin'" which didn't make my inner-twelve-year-old snicker AT ALL. Yeah. Have a jazzy day!

  4. Wow! thanks! That music is awesome. Lovin' RA sure expands your horizons. I learn so much about so much of everything! Music, art, literature, even blogs comparing him to classical Greek statues/myths and ... well, you name it. It's like a well rounded education all based on RA. (Heather)

  7. "Moanin'?" Was that choice just a coincidence, or a deliberate strategy to drive us even more crazy?

    1. Are you suggesting corporate media might have been manipulating us here? My, so cynical. ;)

  8. Happy you found this. You have to wonder who was responsible for making the music choice for the video. Probably someone who was "Moanin'" herself. Great find!

  9. Whatever the reason for choosing that particular piece of music, I have to say it works for me - even the name! ;) (Teuchter)

  10. I echo so many of these comments. I wager more than a few moans/gasps accompanied this song as we all watched this... Thanks for sharing this tidbit!

    1. It was driving me crazy because it's one of those pieces I've heard a hundred times and probably knew the title at some point but I couldn't remember it. Time to increase the Ginko Biloba, apparently. :)
