Hey, dear readers, I'm super busy and kind of under the weather today. I have to go to the doctor and a lunch appointment. I guess I had too much fun at that Voxtrot Valentine's Day show last night -- they covered "Cupid" complete with a violin and french horn. And I'm still swooning 'cause darling Ramesh liked my dress -- the flyer requested formal dress, and I complied. And then there was the part of the evening where Jason from ...Trail of Dead squired us through a crosswalk like we were old ladies -- which you know, we kind of are -- and then dashed off to Club de Ville, presumably to make it there before last orders! And at our post-show snacklet, the boys at Star Seeds entertained us by singing along to the greatest hits of ELO and Hall & Oates. It was a very good night indeed.
So, anyway, have you heard "Dudley," the latest leaked Yeah Yeah Yeahs track? [behind this yousendit link] It totally makes me think of one of my favorite movies, The Bishop's Wife, where Cary Grant plays an angel named Dudley. I know, I'm weird. Anyway, it's really rather sweet, with a deceptively simple melody that echoes nursery rhymes in the best way possible. I'm really looking forward to the whole album.
Also, I just can't stop listening to Paul Anka's cover of "Wonderwall." Seriously, it's so fantastically overblown, much in the same way the original is, only, you know, with a full big band instead of cranky drunkard brothers making a faux wall of sound.
Ok, I'll catch you kids later. Have a great day!
