Spread the Clap Around


27 mai 2006, 5h36m

All right, in honour of an routine STI test taken today (results on June 1), and one of my favourite Broken Social Scene songs, Cause=Time, and the general catchiness of handclaps in songs (in my catalogue, they always adjust the ratings upwards, and account for raised deleting reconsiderations - but do I really delete anything with handclaps?) I am proposing to create the ultimate Spread the Clap Around playlist. Please infect others with your handclap favourites here - indie rock, top 40, world music, or any other genre.

As usual I'm in the middle of working so I'll be back adjusting this entry - I have a playlist of handclap music at home which I'll post here later tomorrow.

Wait, just off the top of my head:
The Boy With the Arab Strap
Tutti Frutti (a Roma version) - Gadjo Dilo Soundtrack
Jive Talkin' - Saturday Night Fever
Private Eyes
Oh Anna
Gimme Some Money
Living On The Ceiling
The Message
Pe loc
Turn It On
Kelly Watch the Stars
I Fought the Law
The Magnificent Seven

    Duh, right you are, that's the one I was thinking of — I always get their song names turned around.

    We R the Handclaps? It may not be a great song, but it does have a deep-voiced man saying I am the bass. Need I say more?

    @ ChadFromCanada: Are you listing awesome handclap songs, possibly with the titles Stop Wastin' My Time, You Know What I Want? Are there bands to go with those? :) If anyone cares at all, I forgot to mention, a few days after I made the original post I passed my STI tests, so in a very important sense I won't be spreading the clap around. But I'm still on the lookout for more handclap songs. Fun pyschological by-product of compiling handclap songs: when you are straining to hear handclaps in songs, you will be convinced that you hear them in songs that don't actually have them; e.g. Clap Hands.
