Another Juicy Song
July 15, 2007 7:39 PM   Subscribe

Help me find a song that's really similar to "Juicy" by Better Then Ezra.

I used "Juicy" by Better then Ezra (iTunes Link) for a project last year, and the song perfectly encompassed the style of the project.

Well, another iteration of the project is back, but a new song is needed. iTunes has let me down -- so I'm coming to you, hive mind.

I would love any music suggestions that are similar to "Juicy," with an up-beat tempo. If there's also a karaoke version of the song suggested, even better.

The first thing I think of are maybe some disco-era stuff, like Bowie's Fame, or some Talking Heads stuff, probably because of the punchy rhythm guitar similarity. I'll see if I can think of something more contemporary.

Althought pretty sexy, my first thought was "Beautiful" by Goldfrapp has a very similar upbeat tempo.

Secondly, I love love love The Magic Numbers - they're great and lot of their music has a similar style to "Juicy."

Have you tried putting it into Pandora?

"Keys" by Golden Smog has a similar sound to my ear. A little bit funky, upbeat and retro-ish.

Chicken Payback by A Band of Bees has a similar funky groove to it. Sorta silly lyrics. (itunes link)

Pop by The Aluminum Group. (allmusic link)

There's also an EP of Juicy remixes, you know. (itunes)

She Drives Me Crazy by Fine Young Cannibals sounds similar.

Check out some funk classics by Parliament or Kool and the Gang unless you specifically want something contemporary. "Flashlight" by Parliament comes to mind.
