Good guy Luis over at Pretty Much Amazing asked us to participate in his first Blog War and the idea was, let's say, so "genius" we opted in immediately.

The premise is that he's paired up 2 bloggers with 1 song. From that one track, we were each to create a Genius Playlist in our iTunes stemming from said song. Voting is up on his page and whomever garners the most votes, moves on to the next round.

The Beast is paired up in this first round with Pigeons and Planes and the track given to us was M79 by Vampire Weekend.

Below, you can find what my Genius Playlist was, and then please, go over to PMA and vote for us here!
