So, the first time I heard this song, I swear I thought the radio personality said "Bacon for thread," which would be apt, because it's an alt song. But it made very little sense for it to be called that. At least to me.
When I finally saw the name of the song on my XM Radio screen, it made much more sense, as it was "beggin," not "bacon."
Yup, it was one of those kinds of days.
But I've got an addiction to this song. As in, it's been stuck in my head all day. I like the alt-pop feel of the song, and how it's got more grit to it than I would expect. It definitely fits my current obsession with bands and songs that sound like the Sneaker Pimps (or Portishead), but without fitting firmly into that genre.
I seriously would not be surprised to hear "Beggin for Thread" pop up on my local pop music station in the future. It has some serious crossover potential (can that happen in alt rock?).
Check it out - it's a good song, and perfect for these chilly fall temps!
