The Golden Rock song of the day - 4/3/07

Today's song of the day can be found in either the album Songs from Wong Kar Wai's Movie or The Private Press. The MTV was directed by Wong Kar Wai, which gave me extra incentive to put it on here. Musically, it's pretty awesome too. Sampled from Colonial Bagshot's "Six Day War" and Dennis Olivieri's I Cry In the Morning," it's DJ Shadow's "Six Days."

Why? Because it's a haunting little tune with a killer hook. Those bongo drums and the little jungle synth sounds all come together for cool non-hip-hop effort from the Bay Area's own. Plus, the MTV is directed by Wong Kar Wai.

Here's the remix that appeared in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, which just blends the vocal with another DJ Shadow beat. Honestly, I think it sucks.
