Bullet and a Target - Citizen Cope

This week's song recommendation is Citizen Cope's "Bullet and A Target." I was first introduced to Citizen Cope when "Let the Drummer Kick" was used on So You Think You Can Dance. I couldn't get the song out of my head. It was so original. At that time, I could still listen to Launchcast at work, and pulled up his fan station. I was blown away. His sound and his lyrics are so unique. The first time I heard "Bullet and a Target" I fell in love. I ran out immediately and bought the album. Citizen Cope is a blend of rock, hip hop and reggae. A native of Memphis, Tennessee, one can definitely feel the diverse music in culture from that area come through in his music. While "Bullet and a Target" is my recommendation, I cannot claim that it is my favorite Citizen Cope song. It's like picking out a favorite crayon from the 64 count box. Among the amazing songs are "Sideways," "Brother Lee," and "Mandy." If you haven't ever heard him...give him a listen, you will not be disappointed. Speaking of disappointed, the Sooner basketball game was definitely a downer last night. But maybe this happened so the guys will have a break to get ready for the Big Dance. The Spring Game is coming up very soon...yea!!! My fantasy golf team is playing well, but I'm kicking myself for not picking Mickelson. Oh well...there's always next time.
