Song of the Week: Janelle Monáe “Electric Lady”

130903-janelle-monae

I fell in love with Janelle Monáe while I was in college, so the new “Electric Lady” video has special place in my heart. The combination of the black greek house party vibe and the overt references to the sitcom “A Different World” and Spike Lee movie “School Daze,” put an instant smile on my face. This song is the perfect feel-good summer track featuring a late-sixties groove and Prince-inspired guitar riffs. Its also nice seeing Monáe step out of the confines of her initial black and white costume.

Now, I want to go to a family picnic.
