Girl Talk

As a kid, if someone brought up “girl talk” in a conversation, I’d immediately teleport back to my youth–to thoughts of sleepovers and pillow fights and lovely young ladies chatting about how cute I am.  Okay, so I still have those thoughts as an adult, but now Girl Talk has taken on so much more thanks to creative musical juggernaut Gregg Gillis.

I am going to share something personal with you. I struggle at times with my attention span. I often spin through the radio dial listening to songs one verse at a time before switching to something else.  While working on a project if a light shines across my desk I drift off and

Girl Talk’s Feed the Animals is perfect if you are in the mood for over 300 songs mashed up in a giant musical blender. You like your Jay-Z sprinkled with some Sinead O’Connor?  Enjoy a little Avril Lavigne accompanied by a side of the Wu-Tang Clan?  Have a hankerin’ for a Radiohead-Michael Jackson-Roy Orbison-Justin Timberlake-Megadeth-AC/DC-Kelly Clarkson-flavored Musical smoothie?  Then Feed the Animals. It’s really okay.

If you are a person that gets grossed out at the thought of mixing your peas with your mashed potatoes, I feel your pain.  However, if you’re looking to get pumped for a night out on the town or want a party mix at your next shindig you can’t go wrong with the mad genius of Girl Talk. Hip-Hop serves as a backbone through all of the tracks, which means the naughty words flow like an eternal spring.  With that in mind I would discourage breaking the album out at your next church lock-in.  But that depends on the awesomeness of the church.

Feed the Animals is the forth album from Girl Talk, so there is plenty to check out when you find yourself wanting more. Go forth and rock this album. Cruise around town with your windows down, all the while blowing out your factory speakers.

If you want to party like a rock star, check out the album below…if you can handle it.  You probably can’t handle it though.
