Don't sully a good Prince post with this bullshit, please. For Prince.

Do you think he said something really clever to it, like "Catch you later," and now he's up in heaven playing it now? I like to think so.

Totally agree. The track is on Spotify, and I'll listen to it there every now and then, but this is something that really just needs to be watched.

I'm actually really surprised this is "newly viral." I remember watching it (live, I think) when I was 16, in formative guitar-learning years, and thinking, "Holy shit, Prince is legit!" Dhani's reaction at 4:46 is priceless.

Diehard Scrubs fan here, this Colin Hay has me very jazzed up.

*back in the day. Neither are really even really that much of a guilty pleasure anymore.

Probably listened to Chuck more than any blink album -- possibly all combined -- so I can see where you're coming from.

Yea, I don't know how anyone could say Wilco is boring. Jeff Tweedy doesn't need to say anything because the band is soooooo fucking tight that anything anyone says can only detract from what they play.

God, what a great song. I was hoping they'd roll right into Call to Arms after it ended.

"Different but still the same" should be the new album title.

To echo my friends here, yea, this track seems to exist purely for middle school nostalgia. But it really isn't bad, which I think is a decent measure of success for this cohort of musicians today. Also, are goatees cool again? Should I bust out my puka shell necklace?

The first five tracks they released last month are on Spotify. AFAIK you need to search 'Day of the Dead' and it'll pop up under albums. I haven't been able to find the album by searching for individual artists. Not sure about the vinyl release, but from the sample it definitely seems worth the paycheck.
