The conversations are all referring the B.o.B. song “Airplanes” featuring Hayley Williams of Paramore and more importantly, featuring a chorus written (not produced) by two Cornellians (only one of which is an SAE bro).
Alum Jeremy Dussolliet and senior Tim Sommers, who go by the stage names Kinetics & One Love, respectively have given Cornellians something to gush about. The hit single has got the student body equally excited and surprised that two of the Big Red’s own are behind one of the chief tracks on the charts right now. And by a quick glimpse at Kinetics’ & One Love’s Facebook profiles, both guys seem similarly awed via their statuses filled with thankfulness and a bit of gloating:
The duo are signed on as songwriters for Warner Music Group, so now we all know at least one senior whose not playing the unemployment tango come G-day. As for the Cornellians who are facing unemployed at the end of May, you probably have a few mutual friends with the guy whose song will be playing in the background all summer as you scour for places to send your resume… if that makes you feel any better.
