On August 19, 2014, The Pop Ups will officially release their 3rd album, Appetite for Construction. In honor of this exciting event, I am proud to kick off the “10 Songs in 10 days Celebration” (learn more at the end of this post) with a new single called “Getting the Job Done.” Set to funky electro-pop beats and multi-layered harmonies, the album’s leadoff track pays tribute to those who work to make our lives richer, i.e. teachers, doctors, farmers, bakers, while also encouraging us to find joy in our own work.
Jason Rabinowitz explains, “The inspiration for this song was that we were on tour w/ Yo Gabba Gabba Live, traveling from place to place making music, and we stopped and looked around and our minds were blown by the fact that this was OUR JOB! We were so inspired we wrote the song on the tour bus and sang it with the kids that were also working there. Work, play, have fun… That’s what it’s all about. An homage to all of the people that work so hard to make the world go around. It’s easy to forget simple things like bread, or your computer, have people behind them dreaming them up, creating them, and making them work. We’re all very important and all have work to do… Let’s have fun doing it.”
If all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, then someone needs to grab some dancing shoes and introduce Jack to The Pop Ups!
