“Houdini” by Foster the People – The Song of the Week for 5/21/2012
“Houdini” by Foster the People was released on May 15, 2012 as the 6th single from the band’s debut album Torches
Genre: Indie Pop, Indie Dance
When is the last time you saw a band release a SIXTH single from an album? Foster the People are on fire and rightfully so. Their debut album Torches is amazing and I highly recommend it. In fact, the album is ranked #40 on my Top 50 Favorite Albums of All-time list. Its one of those special albums where every single song is good and all your friends like the album too. The video for “Houdini” is probably the best video Foster the People have released yet.
Foster the People scored a Song of the Week nod back on November 28, 2011 with “Helena Beat”, the 2nd single from Torches.
“When I feel kinda bad and don’t want to stress
I just pass it off on ability
Well you got what you want, what you never knew
It’s a perfect gift from me to you”
