For Marketplace Money, Friday, September 17, 2010

As per usual, I like to talk about one song I used for the show this week, and this week I’d like to turn your attention to “Fot I Hose” by Casiokids. Don’t ask me to pronounce it; because I have no idea…

I learned about Casiokids from a co-worker while frantically looking for a new fun bridge. (It’s not that easy, you know.) As soon as I heard it, I just fell for it. Casiokids is a Norwegian band from Bergen…don’t ask me where that is either (the only Bergin I know is Bergin County, New Jersey, where my wife hails from).

What I do know is that it’s really fun, and quirky sounding – perfect when you want to lighten up the mood a bit. If you want to learn more, check out their myspace page.

And here are the rest of the songs we played:

  • Private Life – Grace JonesBuy
