Best of ’11: M83

M83The Best Songs You (Maybe) Didn’t Hear 2011
Track 2: M83, “Midnight City”

I said it before, back in October, so I’ll say it again: M83’s “Midnight City” is “the soundtrack to the greatest 80’s buddy cop drama never made.” Seriously: “just listen to the sweet sax solo that ends the song — it’s the aural equivalent of hot pink and it’s AMAZING.”

The album it’s culled from, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is a double album of solid synth pop, but it’s sadly overstuffed: a little editing here and there, and it would easily have made my year-end top 10 list (which is coming soon!).

The soundtrack to the greatest 80’s buddy cop drama never made

Just listen to the sweet sax solo that ends the song — it’s the aural equivalent of hot pink and it’s AMAZING:

From M83’s excellent-if-a-little-overstuffed double album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, which is fast becoming one of my favorite albums of 2011.
