One of my roles at Automattic is to maintain Plinky, now that we’ve acquired the service from Thing Labs. I’m a techy on this project, so I still find myself being exited about the prompts our editors come up with. Here’s me trying to answer one of them: “Name three songs you never get sick of“.
This song struck a particular chord in me when I listened to it the first time. I was seventeen years old and had just moved from Martinique (Caribbean) to Montreal (Canada), only starting to truly learn spoken day-to-day English. This is the first English song I truly understood from start to finish and could relate to at the same time.
The combination of the powerful drum beats, deep background vocals and soothing female voice never fails to give me goose bumps. Every time.
