Monsters University - WHAT IS THAT SONG????

So we just got back from seeing Monsters University today and I could not get that song out of my head.

No, not the Randy Newman one. I mean no disrespect, but good old Randy could not have composed something this catchy, complicated, and hip. Jazz meets good old fashioned marching band, the song had me searching high and low.

Curiously, it does not appear on the official Monsters University soundtrack. There is only one non Randy Newman track on the soundtrack and considering the song I was searching for appears not once, BUT THREE times, you might think it deserves top billing.

So I googled it. And thank you very much interweb, because low and behold I found it... and immediately downloaded it.

They are the MarchFourth Marching Band and the song is called "Gospel".  They are from Portland Oregon, and from what I can gather they are uber band geeks that also joined Jazz Band and maybe dreamed of joining the circus one day. In other words, awesome.  Maybe Randy was feeling threatend and asked that their song not be included on the soundtrack because he knows he has some serious competition. Whatever the case, it's weird since the Marchfourth Marching Band rocks the house and must be promoted.

So if you see MU and think to yourself, "what the hell is that song. I need it." I've done the research for you, and you are very welcome.

Now go and support them if you live in the Portland, OR area and be sure and tell them they need to make a road trip to Boston.

    March Fourth just bought themselves a bus and spend months each year on the road. Check out their website or Facebook page, Davina, because I'm sure they'll be in the Boston area and they are FANTASTIC live.

  2. Thanks, Davina! I just downloaded it!
