Song Of The Day – 12/12/10

Song Of The Day – “Radio Daze” by The Roots from the album “How I Got Over”

It’s been a great year for The Roots.  They released two of the best albums of 2010: the one where this song is from and the equally essential “Wake Up!” album with Jon Legend. You may have seen them at the “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” a few months back tearing it up on stage…or perhaps you’ve seen them nightly as the house band on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” where they not only provide superb music but aid Fallon in the comedy. The Roots hail from Philadelphia featuring ?uestlove (Ahmir Khalib) on drums and Black Thought (Tariq Trotter) on vocals.  They are one of the few hip hop bands that use more live instruments than samples.
