    Today is the first time I heard this song and I love it.

    It's called "Kids" by MGMT. To me its sounds like Hippie Rock New Wave.

    The video is creepy and it's a toddler getting spooked by creeps in scary costumes. The poor little guy is gonna have issues growing up.

    The good part of the song starts at the 2:00 mark.

    You know, it took me a long time to come around on MGMT. About six or seven months back I listened to "Oracular Spectacular" and enjoyed a good bit of it. I still haven't peeped the latest album, though.

    I'm generally not too keen on modern bands, but I like MGMT for the most part.

    It's one of the most listened to on my pod, lol.

    Better than their current stuff, imo.

    Disappointing, in my humble opinion.

    Yeah I think Electric Feel is their most popular song by far.

    I like it as well but I've heard it so much that I get tired of it easily.

    Speaking of the band, I always call them "Management" and EVERYONE looks at me funny for it. Most people pronounce it M-G-M-T. Its not so bad because the band name used to be "The Management" but people still find it odd.

    I do it because, at my university, MGMT is short for Management in the course directory. So, for instance, Organization Communication is listed as MGMT 325, read as "Management Three Twenty-Five"...so naturally when I see "MGMT" I read it as "Management."

    Whenever I refer to the band as "Management" everyone gives me a really funny face. :redface:

    You know, I've heard it's disappointing, Looking. I understand it was an effort made by the band to move in a different direction, which I respect. I'll give the record a listen eventually.
