Thanks tons for this link! BEAUTIFUL live versions of these tracks — definitely superior to the late night show versions. “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me” is my favourite track on the album and it sounds fabulous here. I simply cannot WAIT to see it done live when I see them next month!
WOW, that’s super. I love the original but this is completely different and fantastic. I read somewhere else that Sexsmith wanted to do this version as more of a “drunken singalong” which I think totally works.
Totally digging this. Now need the whole album!
WOWZERS. I was trying to blow off the addition of Prince to the line-up…but apparently he freaking DELIVERED.
Note to Stereogum: Sarah McLachlan not McLachlin. Even the random poster on prince.org got it right — although they got the song name wrong (should just be “Angel”, not “The Arms of an Angel”).
Flight of the Conchords + Wolf Parade = PURE WIN. I’d go just for those two alone!
…if only I lived remotely near to Seattle…:P
I like this, but I really liked “Possess” too, so there you go.
Okay the Obama-sistible video was pretty stupid, but Tracy was pure win as always.
Wow, that is surprisingly fantastic. I mean, I thought I’d like it, but I didn’t think I’d like it *that* much. The intro is super amazing.
