#Top31Tracksof2014: This track just radiates cool, much like the rest of Jungle's output. That dirty bass, the swimmy synths, the crappy Casio horns, the wannabe Bee Gees vocals... It's a combination that doesn't seem like it should work on paper, but absolutely does in practice, helped by a stunning hook.
"Busy Earnin'" would have been on this list anyway, but it was it's deployment in the opening of Telltale Games' "Tales From the Borderlands" series that pushed it up so high. For, as we all know, a great song expertly used in a damn great piece of other media can be elevated to even greater heights thanks to that usage. #bestof2014 1
