Danger Mouse

Question of the Day: "I'm Sorry"

by Corny O'Connell

Over the weekend Jack White issued an "apology" for having made disparaging remarks about The Black Keys, Danger Mouse, Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Lana del Rey, and Adele behind their backs. Instead of making his begrudging mea culpa in prose, he should have just written them a song. Saying, "I'm sorry," in song has a long tradition. List some of your favorite examples in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi - Words and Music - 2011

by Kara Manning

The work of an American pop producer and an Italian film composer come together on the new album, 'Rome.' And, those two talents (Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi) team up with a few more (including Jack White and Norah Jones) to create a sound that celebrates classic Italian film soundtracks with a contemporary feel. Learn more as Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi talk with FUV's Kara Manning. [05/02/2011]

Broken Bells - Words and Music - 2010

by Alisa Ali

The band Broken Bells only has two people — The Shins' James Mercer and Brian Burton (a.k.a. producer/DJ Danger Mouse) — so it might be a stretch to call them an indie-rock super group. However, in an interview with WFUV's Alisa Ali, they said that even with all of their other projects like Gnarls Barkley and The Shins, putting together their self-titled debut has been among their favorite musical projects.
