MGMT - Kids (Vid)

Favorite Song of the Month.

I don't know the correct musical terminology (Could someone could help me out?) but I love the "stall" at 3:46, which ultimately climaxes with the "reboot" at 3:54. I love this element in songs.

I believe that part is referred to as "the break down." I'm confused by this video, though, because I was under the impression that the following was the actual official music video for the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fe4EK4HSPkI

Ah, that's helpful, thanks. Ya, I read in the comments on the video I posted that it wasn't the official video but it was the first one I found. :)

No problem, but now I can do you one better. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Break_%28music%29

Pretty technical stuff. Haha.

Sweet! Thanks man. So what I was talking about specifically is the "drop". The breakdown is the 30 seconds or so leading up to it. Cool. Now I can show off my technical musical terminology. :)
