We Are More Excited about Girl Talk on Everything than the Beatles on iTunes | The Awl

Spot on observation by Matt Honan over at The Awl on how the shared experience of music is no longer dictated by big record companies.

For a moment at least, we are all talking about the same thing, at the same time. When Bill Wasik tweets “#favoritegirltalkspots Track 11 1:32-2:50,” I can go hear exactly what he’s talking about. It’s a water cooler moment for the era of weak-ties!

Oh, and my favorite Girl Talk spot is on Track 4 (Jump On Stage) from 3:00 – 4:25, which is mostly Radiohead’s Creep with Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Shimmy Shimmy Ya. You can view the sample list while playing the tracks here.
