The Library: "Bombs Over Baghdad" by Outkast

I believe "Bombs Over Baghdad" is the best song Outkast ever recorded. It's smart, it's witty, and it's an instant party starter. It is essential for any music fan's library. Just look at some of these lyrics:

Weather man tellin' us it ain't gon' rain So now we sittin' in a drop-top, soaking wet In a silk suit, tryin' not to sweat Hits somersaults without the net But this'll be the year that we won't forget

It's rap by way of stream of consciousness narrative and it drives me wild.

Just give it a listen and add it to your collection. No need to create an argument for a song this good.

I'm actually on the road today. I'll try to get up something more substantial later tonight. No guarantees.
