Hilltop Hoods – Chase That Feeling (album: State of The Art 2009)

This song is by the Aussie Hip Hop group Hilltop Hoods. Usually I’m not into Hip Hop at all, why? Don’t know, I find it very boring. But I quite enjoy some of Hilltop songs.I think they are quite awesome and very talented, it sounds a bit different to the American Hip Hop and I like it! I have to say that the Aussie accent goes pretty well with the Hip Hop singing. This song is quite a combination of a good soul song and Hip Hop. It’s hard not to like it actually.

The only other Hip Hop song that I really liked was Pump up the Jam by Technotronic that was released in 1989, I was very young back then. It was such a stupid song with a cool rhythm. This song was played everywhere and they even came out with a stupid dance for it. Everybody knew the stupid dance moves ‘which involved a lot of leg quick leg movements. It was really spastic but everybody was doing it so I had to learn it as well. Thanks to my over practicing, I still remember the dance.  God, we were so pathetic back in the late 80’s and we actually thought that we were cool! Check out this cool song...

What’s this song about?
I couldn’t find an official quote from the band but here is a comment that cracked me up from song meaning website:
 “The song's message is one of their profound passion for music, specifically their music. Also they seem to touch on themes of how it is that music has positively effected them and their values compared to individuals who don't have music in their lives.

Or it might all just be an extended metaphor about hunting kangaroos. It's hard to tell.”
