Song 1

“I Only Have Eyes For You” is a classic American song, a standard written in 1934 by Harry Warren and Al Dubin and most famously recorded by the Flamingos in 1959. And now a whole host of indie artists have recorded covers of the song for artist Doug Aitken’s installation “Song 1,” which comes to Washington, D.C.’s Hirshhorn Museum 5/11. Former Stereogum dude and current Pitchfork editor Brandon Stosuy helped to organize the event, which will involve projections on the museum’s walls. Listen to versions of the song from Beck, No Age with Tim McAffee, Devendra Banhart with No Age, Lucky Dragons, High Places, and Koen Holtkamp at Pitchfork.

  1. Look at you, Beck! I feel a sudden, insatiable craving for Midnite Vultures 2: The Autumn Years. Killer vocal!
