ONE WAY Recommends [Issue
#8] Nellie Mckay By
way From Me
This 19 year-old New
York City musical prodigy has created the best album of the year. Clever lyrics
and musical styles from hip hop to torch songs to 50s pop combined with the exquisite
production of Beatles' engineer Geoff Emerick make Get Away From Me a must-have.
Every song on the album is incredibly good and incredibly different. Wont
U Please B Nice delivers the cheeky lyrics If you would sit Oh so
close to me / That would be nice. Like its supposed to be / If you dont
Ill slit your throat. So wont you please be nice / If you would hug
your arms right around me / That would be snug. Like its supposed to be
/ If we part Ill eat your heart So wont you please be nice,
all under the guise of a lounge song. The whole album is a fun-filled romp. In
this mediocre era of teen pop ala Aguilera, Spears, Duff, and Lavigne, Nellie
McKay is a breath of fresh air. Buy this album!
