Every once in a while a song comes along that drives me completely mental. I play it over and over again, like a rat in a B. F. Skinner box. Something about the song is linked directly to my brainâ€™s pleasure center.
The Little Oneâ€™s â€œLovers Who Uncoverâ€ is one of those songs. Insanely catchy, everything about this song is fantastic; multiple irresistible hooks grab you by the ears and wonâ€™t let go while subtle touches bury the hooks even deeper. At 1:32 into the song thereâ€™s a breakdown complete with handclaps and chants thatâ€™s so sugary it seems unfair. Iâ€™m pretty sure the other songs on the Sing Song EP are damn good too, I just canâ€™t get â€œLovers Who Uncoverâ€ out of my head long enough to listen! BTW, did you know B.F. Skinnerâ€™s first name was Burrhus?
