Song of the day: Minipop – "Like I Do"

Here’s the (slightly tortuous) course of events that led to today’s song:

  1. Facebook Friend (i.e., someone I’ve never actually met but who seems nice) Chris Manning announced on his Wall that the website for his recording studio, Salamander Sound, is up and running.
  2. Being a curious sort of fellow, I went to the Salamander Sound website. Whilst there, I found a sound sample to download. I downloaded it.
  3. The sound sample had snippets of many songs. (Chris seems to be a very busy man.) None of them did much for me except the one I heard from 0:25 to 0:40. I got terribly enthusiastic about it, and wanted to find out exactly what it was.
  4. I found out.
  5. It’s a song called “Like I Do” by a band called Minipop.
  6. I really liked that song. So much so that I wanted it to go on this blog. So I nicked the code for the song on Chris’s website (thanks, Chris!) so you could hear it here.

If you had trouble with that player (I may not have copied-and-pasted all the necessary code), try MySpace’s tiny button for the song:

    I really like this song, but the resemblance to a Pixies bassline/progression is so distracting. Listen again and see if you hear it!

    Hey, Allie: Thanks for mentioning the Pixies resemblance. I hadn't noticed it before, but when I listening to “Like I Do” again just a moment ago those first four bass notes hit me and I instantly recognised it:

    Pixies – “Where Is My Mind?”

    Thanks again, Coincidence Spotter Allie.

    I believe this is the same Chris Manning who used to be in Jellyfish, correct?
