SONG OF THE DAY Young MC – Know How

Last night I went to see Baby Driver for the second time, I’m addicted and still can’t get over just how great this film is! Any music lover will who watches this will appreciate just how the extensive soundtrack enhances the whole storytelling process!

In a review I was reading the other day, Edgar Wright details his reasons behind each song choice and this is what had to say about Know How, a funky song which was released in the late 80’s by the English-born hip hop artist, Marvin Young, a.k.a Young MC:

“It comes late in the film, and by that point in the movie there had been quite a few songs that had been sampled for famous hip-hop songs. The idea of wrong-footing the audience a little bit: They hear the intro to “Harlem Shuffle” and half the audience are expecting “Jump Around” by House of Pain to start-up. Then “The Edge” by David McCallum, which was sampled by Dr. Dre. And then there’s the Detroit Emeralds’ “Baby Let Me Take You (In My Arms),” which was used for De La Soul’s “Say No Go.” But then I wanted to flip it the other way, so when “Know How” kicks in, I wanted people to think it was Shaft”
