So, on a recommendation of a few friends, I checked out some songs by Franz Ferdinand. Pretty good, sez I. And then I hear the one they picked for his first radio single, “Take Me Out,” and it does that great slow-down bit, drops into the groove, and I’m tapping my feet to it, and I realize that I’ve heard the riff in the chorus before.
Am I the only one who hears it? Is Franz Ferdinand’s first single a retread of South Bound Saurez?
And even if it is: man, it’s pretty bloody good, eh?
(Unless I’m being whooshed here,) Franz Ferdinand is the name of a band, not an individual in the band. They’re named after Archduke Franz Ferdinand, whose assasination set off that little scuffle known as World War I.
But, yeah, they are really cool, and if they play in your town, I encourage you to check 'em out.
