MMM: 2 for 1 on Moonbeam Jars

Another Monday is well under way and that means it's time for a new Monday Mood Music. This week's selection is a request; kinda, sorta. Over the weekend, the wife and I saw Dinner for Schmucks and The Other Guys, and she thought it'd be neat-o to showcase a great duet in honor of the two buddy flicks.

While I'm sure she'd love to hear some Peaches & Herb or Simon & Garfunkel, there's a more recent record that's been spinning in my head. This tune is befitting sentiments a character from each movie expressed. As Mark Wahlberg's Terry put it, "I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!" Steve Carell's Barry chose to misquote John Lennon when he said, "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not."

Both men had dreams; one to be the best detective possible, the other a master of mousterpieces. It reminded me of the latest single by Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr. a.k.a. B.o.B.. His second official single, Airplanes, is a collaboration with Hayley Williams, lead singer of Paramore. On a side note, Paramore kicked off their tour in my town two weeks ago and they were awesome. If they come to your area, I recommend you check them out.

B.o.B. and Hayley's duo is a big hit at the moment. Airplanes talks about wishes and dreams. While there's a few different interpretations as to what it means, it sticks with you, and not in an annoying Hey, Soul Sister kind of way.

Will this be the week you catch your airplane?
