Run The Jewels - Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)

10/24/2015 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

I am one of those dicks who hears one song by a band and claims to love their entire being. Steely Dan? Amazing classic rock! (knows Reelin in The Years) Black Keys? The dopest you guys! (heard 1 song in a movie trailer.) Well, my new victims are Run The Jewels. I heard "Close Your Eyes and Count To Fuck" and now I am spewing my love for them everywhere I go. Kind of like a college kid who is passionate about discussing Syria because ISIS is like, so fucked up you guys. Of course, my actual knowledge about Run The Jewels may evolve. By the time you read this, maybe I will have become their biographer (they remixed one of their albums exclusively to cat sounds! halfway there). But for now, I am the worst kind of fan. The fan that hipsters have nightmares about. Well, sorry. I'm not about to show up to a concert and demand the lost B sides. But you know what, if this song helps people find other Run The Jewels music, I think that's pretty amazing. Speaking of this song, I want to walk into the club wearing tranny heels and a million dollars worth of trashy bling when I hear this. It's so badass. I like to imagine Bill Nye works out to this song. That hook is fiyaaa!! Reminds me of NWA. You know, one of my favorite bands of all time.
