WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS

WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS by Justice.

I first heard about this tune a couple years ago when it won an MTV Europe best video award, and Kanye West crashed the stage to complain. Funny, and classy and the same time.

But suffice it to say, it never made an impact over here even though it's high quality. With the somewhat greater success of Justice's new album & especially D.A.N.C.E., it's worth a second listen to We are Your Friends. I've heard it called a mashup but I don't think that's the right label, it's just a sample of a track, and to be honest I don't know why Simian gets any credit for it at all. So I haven't here.

LISTEN.

Damn this song for being stuck in my head all last summer. If you want a treat the video is a pitch-perfect complement to the track...You tube should have it if you search Justice vs simian...yup here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fRyXyGSk68
