Modernism Monday: “Get It Up,” Santigiold + M.I.A. (feat. Gorilla Zoe)


PSA: Before you press play, be alerted that this song contains some mild to medium swearing and vaguely salacious themes.

After a certain period of time, you realize that, man, life doesn’t get easier – if you’re lucky, skillful, and have the energy, you just get better at managing.  2014 is already going gangbusters for your Yankette, so Monday mornings are always better with a little extra something to go with my coffee.  Santigold and M.I.A definitely deliver on this track, and it puts a little extra swagger in my step when I need it.  “Always standing in the door, always the same reason you’re stuck: no guts.  No guts.  What will you get it up for?  What will make you want it more?”
