I didn’t ‘discover’ The Beatles until college. That’s right, it took me 18 years to discover the most famous band of all time. Of course, since college I have become soooooo-phisticated! Does anyone really think their 18-year-old selves had it all together?
Anyways, since I missed so many good bands and songs while I was busy Free Fallin’ through high school, I have slowly been rediscovering the bands the cool kids were listening to. Of those, Modest Mouse has to be my favorite.
3rd Planet is the opening track off their album The Moon and Antarctica, which was released my freshmen year of high school. This album is loaded, but recently I have been stuck on 3rd Planet. I am a sucker for songs that change speeds and have different feels, and this one has that in spades.
Like this or other Modest Mouse songs? Let me know in the comments. You can check out 3rd Planet below. Careful! This one drops a few F-bombs, but they feel like polite ones…whatever that means.
