Ellen and the Three Bears get down to Aloe Blacc's 'Can You Do This?'

3

February

It's a sign of the times, and smart modern marketing, that I'm discovering more and more cool songs via TV rather than the radio dial. I love a groovy unexpected find, and I felt that new-discovery tingle during the Super Bowl when Ellen DeGeneres and the Three Bears whipped up a dance party for a Beats Music ad. (Beats Music is a subscription-based online streaming service; it reads your mind and emotions or something.) Anyway, the ferociously fun cut Ellen & Co. boogie down to is Aloe Blacc's Can You Do This? A soulful neo-R&B guy, SoCal's Blacc is best known, or unknown, for singing the hook on Avicii's No. 1 hit Wake Me Up. The rambunctious Can You Do This? is crazy-fun, the kind of old-school-new-school jam Bruno Mars wishes he had written. Cue the dance party...
