This week, we’re sharing a Five Things Friday post on the lighter side. How many of these songs have you heard before?
1. Beyoncé — Blow
Known for touring with an all-female band (Suga Mama), Beyoncé stayed true to form and recorded “Blow” with an all-female horn section: Katty Rodriquez, Adison Evans, and Crystal Torres.
2. Talking Heads — Blind
|This 1987 single, written by David Byrne, is a “parody of partisan politics.” If you listen to the track closely, you can hear the work of Laurie Frink, trumpet!|
3. Kool & The Gang — Good Times
|This track from Kool & The Gang’s 1972 album by the same name includes the work of Sharon Moe, horn.|
4. Radiohead — Codex
|This 2008 track from Radiohead’s eighth album, The King of Limbs, includes the flugelhorn playing of Yazz Ahmed. (If you watch Westworld, you may recognize this song from the season 2 finale!)|
5. Lorde — Sober (Vevo Series)
On the re-orchestrated, acoustic version of “Sober” Lorde recorded for Vevo at Electric Lady Sound Studios in New York, she featured three horn players: Rachel Drehmann, Jenny Ney, and Kaitlyn Resler!
