this is what the world is for, making electricity

Yeah, it's overwhelming, but what else can we do?
get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?

If we must define the Anthem of the Summer as The Song I Can't Stop Listening To, then I'm declaring for MGMT's "Time To Pretend".

In perhaps the only way fitting for a summer brainworm, Time To Pretend seems to be the sole really worthwhile track on MGMT's album, Oracular Spectacular, but let's not be curmudgeons in the face of joy. "Electric Feel" is pretty damned good, too. "Time To Pretend" hits me right in the heartbone with what are, let's face it, gimme lyrics tuned specifically to my particular species of rootless suburban refugee. A wink and a nod to ya, boys... your alchemist knew what she was doing when you two went into the retort.
