I think I'm going to do my best to make this a regular thing.
You'll note that this isn't titled as a guilty pleasure. That's because this is a damned good song. It's way outside my norm for songs to listen to even for a few seconds, but it's really something. I like songs that tell stories.
I wanted to compare the artist, Fort Minor, to Linkin Park, and according to Wikipedia, there's a very good reason for that--it's a solo project for Mike Shinoda, who does at least some of the vocals for that band. Wikipedia describes Fort Minor as hip hop, which I guess is as good a description as any (Linkin Park is rap metal, and personally I'd put Fort Minor in that same strange subgenre).
"Where'd You Go" is a song you've probably heard. Released in 2006, it went platinum. It seems like a deeply personal song, but I'm not finding any info to indicate it's autobiographical. It's an easy one to relate to, if work has ever separated you from a loved one...or, hell, if you've ever seriously wondered about the direction a relationship is headed.
This is the official music video. I haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but I'm going to guess it's the censored version. Most radio edits don't make a lot of sense, but fuck is said a few times (strangely
enough, always in decent context):
