7th Floor - Yoko Ono / Plastic Ono Band

from the album Take Me To The Land Of Hell (2013)

Hats off to Yoko Ono.  She has released an album of new material that is slick, modern, and inspired.  It has a party vibe and is loaded with great musicians, including Mike D. and Ad-Rock from the Beastie Boys, Lenny Kravitz, and ?uestlove.  The production is by Yoko, Sean Lennon, Cornelius, and Yuka Honda.

This record sounds great when listened to in its entirety.  However, if I had to pick a single song, it would be 7th Floor.  It is a funky dance number with a beat and synth tracks that remind me of the Tom Tom Club at their best.  The production is outstanding.  Over this groove is Yoko Ono in spoken word, saying things like "Don't cut my tongue, I can't spit on you."

I am awed that this record is the product of an 80-year old artist.  It stands as a testament that with a sharp mind and a forward outlook, your best days always lay ahead of you.
