It’s a common occurrence for songs to weasel their way onto our minds and bounce around in our skulls all day. These songs make us hum, whistle, and mutter lyrics to ourselves no matter how awkward the situation. These songs aren’t always new, or even incredibly groundbreaking, but they all manage to get stuck in our music-loving noggins; and for that we honor them.

Today’s Song on Repeat is “Stand Off” by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

(Nothing fancy here, I actually couldn’t find any music videos or fan-tributes-vids of this song online)


This song is a classic, I had actually forgotten about it until the shuffle option on my ipod thrust it back into my life. As usual with Mighty Mighty Bosstones songs, this song has great trumpet accompaniment which completes the Ska sound. It is also relatable to anyone who has ever been in a long relationship. The thing about this song that has always stood out to me is the great word-play in the lyrics.

When searching for this on the internet I was actually surprised to find that despite my love for it; this song is sort of underrated. Though,”underrated” means a different thing when it comes to a great band like The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Even though it isn’t rated high in comparison to many of their other songs, I’d still listen to it over many song from just about every other band.

Other songs that I’ve been enjoying recently:

“My Body” by Young The Giant

“Bring Me The Disco King” by David Bowie

“You” by Bad Religion

“Salmon Dance” by The Chemical Brothers
