Summer Song Of The Day

Artist: Little Boots

Song: New In Town

There are 2 reasons we've been listening to this song on repeat during the work day ever since we got our hands (ears?) on it:

1. It reminds us that the weekend is approaching, no matter what day it is, and soon enough we'll have another chance to go crazy on the dancefloor.

2. Despite being here for nearly 3 weeks (!), we are still, in fact, relatively "New In Town", and therefore appreciate the novelty of this song - and those of you who give us any tips, hints, etc on where the locals are hide out during the week.

So even if you aren't planning on choreographing a dance with the Unwashed and their shopping carts any time soon, we suggest adding this to your playlist. It'll keep you from pulling your hair out during the middle of the work week - or at least help you make it to the weekend. Just remember: The dance-floor is right around the corner... now, if you know of any good ones for us in the middle of the week, since we are in fact, "New In Town", feel free to point us in the right direction.

P.S: Little Boots, "where I go, we're dressing down"? Apparently that's not true. I know you're wearing a dress by Ashish in your video!

Lyrics:

Heard you’re New in town Want someone to show you around Well no-one knows this place just quite like me Well I don’t, hang with the crowd Where I go, we're dressing down I’ll take you where the music plays for free

So don’t rely on people you meet Cause no-one is safe in these streets

I’m gonna take you out tonight I’m gonna make you feel alright I don’t have a lot of money But we’ll be fine No, I don’t have a penny But I’ll show you a good time I’m gonna take you out tonight I’m gonna make you feel alright I don’t have a lot of money but we’ll be fine No, I don’t have a penny But I’ll show you a real good time

What I do, you think so far Is it all your hoping for Does it live up to your every dream Or do, we disappoint While you make the choice When you wake up can you hear a scream

So don’t rely on people you meet Cause no-one is safe in these streets

I’m gonna take you out tonight I’m gonna make you feel alright I don’t have a lot of money But we’ll be fine No, I don’t have a penny But I’ll show you a good time I’m gonna take you out tonight I’m gonna make you feel alright I don’t have a lot of money But we’ll be fine No, I don’t have a penny But I’ll show you a real good time

Cause I know how it feels to be alone When strangers only make you feel apart You never, ever felt so far from home You never felt so far from home

I’m gonna take you out tonight I’m gonna make you feel alright I don’t have a lot of money But we’ll be fine No, I don’t have a penny But I’ll show you a good time I’m gonna take you out tonight I’m gonna make you feel alright I don’t have a lot of money But we’ll be fine No, I don’t have a penny

But I’ll show you a real good time
