Joanna Newsom "On A Good Day" On Letterman

  1. I’m so glad she escaped from the giant at the top of the beanstalk, for now I get to watch her play with my head on my hand, smiling like a fool. Oh it is so good.

  2. Can the girl play or what?
    I think I held my breath for a full two minutes of the song.

  3. Sweet baby Jesus that was incredible. Just, wow. So good.

  4. I wonder if this is the first case ever where a song had to be lengthened rather than shortened for a Late Night performance. In any case, this is amazing and I love the new solo section.

  5. Obviously extremely talented, but I’m immature enough to appreciate the unintentional humour;)
