Peter Yorn & John

Find the ubiquity of “Young Folks” a mild-to-severe irritant? Just think of poor Pete Yorn! The pervasive powers of the “Asian riff” may mean you end up in an all-day whistling fit every time you take a trip to the mall/turn on the TV/etc., but for Pete, it means having to deflect constant praise meant for Peter Bjorn & John. But at least Peter’s got a sense of humor about it. Reader Steve sends us this bootleg of Pete’s 7/29 gig at the Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach, DE, during which Yorn says, “Everyone keeps asking me if this is my song, so I decided that I have to play it.”

Pete Yorn – “Young Folks” (MP3)


Nice whistling, Peter Yorn. The outro “C’mo-an!” was probably unnecessary, but good on ya for having fun with it. In other PY news, Page Six reports Bruce Springsteen was “incognito in a baseball cap” during the Yorn gig at the Stone Pony last night. Wonder if the Boss man got served some PB&J. Anyway, after the jump, the greatest Bruce Springsteen video of all time.
