this has been covered a lot. i think i once heard it covered by a tuvan throat singer on npr a few years ago. i don’t think that makes it a lame thing to do. i suppose i view it more as a jazz standard for modern musicians.
additionally, i do like the direction bss have taken here. while not completely destroying the original style, they added their own texture. nice.
Jona is the fucking man.
wayne is acting like a bitch. sure the flaming lips are great, sure arcade fire are great. i don’t know, it’s annoying when musicians make vague asshole comments.
does wayne also hate miles davis? even if arcade fire are dicks, there are so many musicians far better than win who are much bigger assholes.
jamie sounds excellent
miley sounded terrible. taylor sounded great.
my girlfriend suggested Footles. Way better.
carrie looks like she stole her shirt from mamma cass
it is difficult to disagree with the fact that ticketmaster completely sucks. thankfully there are some better options, such as ticketweb, in chicago that actually are used at some really great venues.
the pacing of the video and the semi-chinsy effects combined with the quirky, creative animation really well go with the song well.
i’m so sick of mgmt. srsly. the album has like three songs that are really catchy initially but become rather annoying after a couple listens. maybe seeing them live (twice, at lolla and opening for beck) helped me realize that these guys bother me.
