There has been a song that has haunted me for awhile. One of those songs that you hear, but can never remember what album it is from. I’m generally terrible about song names, and when there are no lyrics, it’s almost a waste of time to try to identify a song. But tonight I heard one of those songs come on while I was listening to a live DJ Shadow set from the Benicassim Festival in 2002. The song has a great drum n bass-y feel to it, with a nice flowing background melody. It reminds me very much of the Crocodile Dundee theme song (as silly as that may sound), in fact so much that I think of it as a Crocodile Dundee remix. I’m sitting here listening in the intricate beats and just smiling. I finally tracked it down to DJ Shadow’s album “Endtroducing…” and the track name is “Napalm Brain/Scatter Brain”. The really good part doesn’t start until about halfway through the 9 minute song, but then it gets oh-so-good. Right at the 6:50 mark the “Crocodile Dundee” part starts in. Such a great track. I highly recommend checking it out. I also found out the DJ Shadow will be in LA at the Hollywood Bowl on June 24th. Hmmm…. Road trip time?
