“Ain’t No Sweet Leaf” by BLACK SABBATH Vs. BILL WITHERS

In 2007, MGMT gave us “Kids”. At the risk of sounding callous, beyond that, who cares? Really. There’s more important things happening in this world than knowing what limp MGMT is up to. Case in point, they released a new album in February 2018 to an uncaring audience.

In 2018, DJ Sung Mo Koo enforces an “Ebony And Ivory” sort of thing with the following mash up. Do some math!
