The Beastie Boys are one of my all time favourite bands. They get high placings in my 20 Albums, so I’m overlooking them for 20 Singles. If i was to go with a solitary Beastie Boys single it’d have to be “So What’cha Want”. Probably their best single release, but there’s a lot to choose from.
Beasties aside, lets take a sideways look at the “4th Beastie Boy”, Money Mark. “Hand In Your Head” released on MoWax has an incredible laid back, dare I say it, jazzy vibe.
Trippy, mellow and just spot on “Hand In Your Head” is his best single. “Cry” comes pretty close, but i’m going with this track.
Playful and ambling from hip-hop into jazz and near psychadelia the single gets inside your head and damn near succeeds in “pulling out all of your mind”. This is his best track and worth 4MB on anyones iPod…
