“Freaks and Geeks” – Childish Gambino
I remember the first time I head Childish Gambino. I didn’t like it at all. However, the longer I have listened to him the more I begin to appreciate his songs. Although “Freaks and Geeks” is not a particularly revealing song, Gambino (Donald Glover) has many songs that are incredibly emotional and lyrics-oriented.
Donald Glover (born September 25, 1983) began his career in entertainment as an actor/writer on the online show Derrick Comedy. The series was successful, and resulted in the opportunity for Glover to write for the hit TV show 30 Rock. He is now known largely for his part on the show Community, but has been building a large following with his rapping.
“Freaks and Geeks” is one of Glovers most upbeat songs, and is one of the few that you could play at a party and not catch weird looks simply based on the sound. However, his typical strange lyrics remain and if you can ignore the disconnectedness of it all and enjoy the beat to which Glover raps over this classic beat the song will have you bobbing your head in no time. If you’re not enjoying this you are probably overthinking it! Enjoy.
