Today I bring you Spoon’s unfortunately titled Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (who am I kidding, that’s an excellent title). This isn’t a new piece of music by any means, but it hasn’t been mentioned yet on Ca Va Cool and I felt the need to bring it in as I figure it will be on many contributors’ ‘Best Of 2007’ Lists. Spoon has been crafting excellent, bare bones rock and roll for about a decade. Despite early comparisons to the Pixies, the band has built a solid reputation for their funky, soulful, and OCD influenced tunes.

Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is the best type of breakup record. Instead of wallowing in the proverbial pit of sadness so often reserved for excellent songwriters, Britt Daniel has crafted an all encompassing retelling of falling out of love. Daniels focuses on the minutia of a relationship instead of playing the blame game, and does it with a heavy helping of trumpet and saxophone.
