[Musikkah! Day Three - Fourth Vowel From The Left]
Musikkah Day Three
What the hell is Musikkah? [Post]

Fourth Vowel From The Left carries quite a bit of weight for me. It was my first mix on this blog, and it probably had the most work done when it came to finding songs for it. Surprisingly, it didn't even have a frame when I posted it, so the work for this mix just never seems to stop...

While listening to the Lovely Feather's "Frantic", I wondered what it is that would make an artist come to the conclusion that all that's needed to complete a song is a good "OoO" chorus of some sort. All the pondering eventually led me to go out and just find these elusive "OoO" songs, and after quite some time and a bit o' work, I managed to collar this bunch. After all the work it took, I realized the rarity of all these "OoO" songs, yet just about every time a song implements an "OoO", the finished song turns out great. I'm not saying adding an "OoO" would simply turn a crap song into gold, but the songs that do end up using it - well, it's hard to imagine it without the "OoO" and still holding the same finesse. Once an "OoO" song finishes, you forget it had any elongated vowel, let alone an "OoO." Well today is OoO Appreciation Day, and this post is for all the stranded OoOs out there - may you find your way to some pursed lips and a rush of air...or is that a whistle? Maybe another post kiddos...

Have you ever heard Foltation Toy Warning's "Popstar Researching Oblivion"? It's more of a "laaaAAaAaAaa laAa" type of thing, but same theme as the OoO, right?
