1. Just A Song About Ping Pong
“I got my, got my, got my, got my, racket in hand, not leaving till I play, don’t think you understand, with that dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty, look on your face, I bet you know beef jerky has an after-taste… go!”
2. In Motion
“Jam the door, jam the door, ’cause I’m floating away, all the things, all the things that I wanted to say”
This is the second release of Operator Please’s crazy single ‘Just A Song About Ping Pong’. Back in March, I described it as “The most exciting couple of minutes I’ve heard in a long while” and it’s a song that’s so fast and furious that when I accidentally played it at 33rpm, it sounded like a normal song at a normal speed.
This time ‘Just A Song About Ping Pong’ comes backed with a brand new song called ‘In Motion’. It’s a sultry voiced, Regina Spektor like, Piano based ballad with a beautiful humable melody. Operator Please can seemingly turn their hands to anything from thrash Punk to classic Pop-Rock songwriting.
