Lyric of the Weak: French Montana, “Don’t Panic”

montana

Twenty-nine uses of the word “nigga” and the priceless line If you a star, I’m a whole planet deserve special recognition in my book…

Don’t panic, nigga don’t panic
Don’t panic, nigga don’t panic

Shawty fell in love with a hustler
Man I took her from a buster
Niggas keep talkin’ like they know something
I slide on your bitch like she hol’ something
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic
Real niggas getting cake
Watch the fake niggas hate
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic

Talking fish scale got the whole salmon
See you fuck niggas from four planets
Just getting started nigga don’t panic
If you a star, I’m a whole planet
Acting like she won’t get it
Have her run through the team like Jerome Bettis
You don’t want it, don’t look for it
Have your bitch on a surfboard, surfboard, surfboard
If you want this money, gotta work for it
Puff puff pass, what you lookin’ at?
Bust it wide open, make it nasty

Shawty fell in love with a hustler
Man I took her from a buster
Niggas keep talkin’ like they know something
I slide on your bitch like she hol’ something
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic
Real niggas getting cake
Watch the fake niggas hate
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic

I won’t let up, sippin’ that Ciroc amaretto
Real bitches gon’ wait on ‘em, fake bitches gon’ skate on ‘em
Real bitches getting cake, fake bitches gon’ hate
She a model on the Gram
Getting swallowed was the plan
This young thug need four bitches
Take her to the crib take no pictures
Ass fat, let me get up on it
Bounce back early in the morning

Shawty fell in love with a hustler
Man I took her from a buster
Niggas keep talkin’ like they know something
I slide on your bitch like she hol’ something
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic
Real niggas getting cake
Watch the fake niggas hate
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic

Don’t panic, nigga don’t panic, don’t panic

Shawty fell in love with a hustler
Man I took her from a buster
Niggas keep talkin’ like they know something
I slide on your bitch like she hol’ something
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic
Real niggas getting cake
Watch the fake niggas hate
Don’t panic, don’t panic
We just getting started nigga don’t panic
Don’t panic, don’t panic

Vinyl Comes Back From Near-Extinction

from , November 19th, 2014

While the whole world is talking about Spotify, Pandora, iTunes and other digital music services, a long-forgotten medium has come back from near-extinction: the LP. In 2013, 6.1 million vinyl albums were sold in the United States, up from less than a million in 2005 and 2006. The same trend can be observed in the UK and in Germany, where LP sales have climbed to the highest levels since the early 1990s. Global vinyl sales amounted to $218 million in the past year and it’s all but certain that the vinyl comeback will continue in 2014.

Music Fan Drops Dime on Nickelback Song Similarity

(via NPR)

by Sean Cole

 

Can a band plagiarize itself? One listener in Canada has implied as much by taking two songs by the band Nickelback and superimposing them over one another to emphasize the similarity.

Mikey Smith, a 21-year-old college student and musician in Alberta, Canada, heard two of the band’s songs on the radio and immediately noticed something was strange.

“I kind of noticed, well, you can hum the melody of the other one over this one, and I wondered why this is,” Smith says. “So I tried to put them together, one on the left speaker, one on the right speaker. And it was actually ridiculous how similar they were.”

What Smith noticed was that Nickelback’s earlier hit song, “How You Remind Me,” sounded very similar to one of the band’s newest songs, “Someday.” Once the similarity was discovered, the songs started piggybacking around the Internet with the moniker “How You Remind Me of Someday.”..

Video of the Week: Muse’s Lip Sync Uprising

Forced to lip sync for an Italian TV show in 2009, the band Muse went one step further and switched instruments. Lead singer/guitarist Matthew Bellamy took over on drums for Dominic Howard, who stepped to “sing” the lead vocals (and field questions from the show’s clueless hostess). Bassist Chris Wolstenholme strummed lead guitar and fingered the keyboards.

Appropriately, they performed the single “Uprising”, singing the chorus of:

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

The Beatles’ Concert Doubleheader of 1966

(via Sports Illustrated)

by Peter King

candle 2The last Beatles concert of all time was at Candlestick Park some 47-plus years ago, on Aug. 29, 1966. Tickets were $4.50 and $6.50, and only 25,000 of 43,000 tickets to the show were sold. The Beatles told no one this was the last show ever, but they knew it. They played 11 songs, including, “I Feel Fine,” “Nowhere Man,” “Yesterday,” and “Paperback Writer.” They finished, nondescriptly enough, with “Long Tall Sally.”

“Long Tall Sally.” Last song ever played by John, Paul, George and Ringo in concert. Now that’s … a letdown.

After the concert, the Beatles were driven to San Francisco International Airport and flew to London. The end.

The North American leg of their final tour was rather amazing. They performed 14 shows in 18 days. The first eight days, the Beatles played a show a night—in Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Washington, Philadelphia, Toronto, Boston (at the Suffolk Downs Race Track) and Memphis. They were supposed to play on a ninth straight night, in Cincinnati. But it rained so hard and the electrical equipment couldn’t be totally shielded from the rain at Crosley Field that night, so the promoter postponed the show. But 35,000 fans wanted to see the Beatles, and so the show went on the next day—at noon. It had to be at noon, because the Beatles had a show that night in St. Louis, 360 miles away. So when the show was over, around 1:30, the stuff was packed up and loaded onto an airplane, along with the Beatles, and they flew to St. Louis, where the Beatles played that night at 8:30 at the old Busch Stadium.

The Beatles played a doubleheader. In two baseball cities 360 miles apart. On the same day.

A site called Beatlesbible.com claims that was the day Paul McCartney was convinced the band should stop touring. It rained hard again in St. Louis that night, and who knows how safe it was, so the boys just thought the touring business was crazy (well, maybe they could have had a saner schedule and not fried themselves), and that tour was it.

So tonight, when the 49ers play their 350th games at the old ballyard, and you hear the poetic waxings about what great history happened in the place, you’ll know there was no greater history—not even The Catch—in the place than the night the Beatles played their final concert in the foggy chill of Candlestick Park.
