I found out that Regina Spektor had done a John Lennon cover and I had to hear it. And of course it was amazing.
We played some Tally Hall who I had seen a week before, and then some new Frightened Rabbit "Skip The Youth", which is very good, and has an intriguing intro. I was seeing Florence + The Machine the next Tuesday and played some "Hurricane Drunk," which I didn't like initially but now really enjoy. Daniel Zott's "Living A Lie" was on Chuck in early March.
Right about this time of early April, I was obsessed with Joanna Newsom's "Good Intentions Paving Company." It's an elegantly and intricately constructed song.
"How I said to you, 'honey, just open your heart', when I've got trouble even opening a honey jar"
That's just a half stanza. The whole song is full of excellence. Lyrics here.
Also Joanna Newsom is dating Andy Samberg of Saturday Night Live fame. So we played some music by The Lonely Island right afterward.
Fun fact: The song I played by Washington is called "Teenage Fury." For some reason, my computer switched the titles of that song and her song "Halloween."
More awesome Fanfarlo. Cyndi Lauper retro jam. Yello's "Oh Yeah" from Ferris Bueller's Day Off and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, better known as "Day Bow Bow". The video is so trippy.
Then some old favorites with "The Frug" and "Karma Police." :)
