Song of the Day: Men in Black

Today’s song is Men in Black by Will Smith.

Hip Hop/R&B.
The hook is solid (sampled though), the rap lyrics are interesting and it references the whole film.

Sets a fun tone (although a bit more nostalgic than 100% ‘authentic’, I mean, it’s a soundtrack song).

The good guys dress in black, remember that.
Just in case we ever face to face and make contact.

This song heavily sampled Patrice Rushen’s Forget Me Nots, which you’ll recognize.

This track led to one of the most surreal mashups of all time: Vivid Memories Turn to Fantasies.
Yeah, it was made by Neil Cicierega. His work is phenomenal and I love all of it.
