Song of the Week: “Ghosts” – Dirty Vegas

17 Oct

Like several of their earlier singles, “Ghosts” has this smooth groove that makes it danceable in an unexpected, almost sneaky way. You think it’s a relaxing chill-out tune, but then someone points out the beat and you’re like, oh, hey. The band had one hit in the early 2000s with “Days Go By,” which had a great video and won a Grammy, but seems to be most famous for being the soundtrack of a Mitsubishi commercial. I also really like “Simple Things” (the radio edit, without the Pink Floyd ending) and “Walk into the Sun.” After a few years apart, the band released a third album in 2011, but none of the songs really grabbed me.
