Sometimes I love them better than the original (Hendrix's "All Along the Watchtower", Johnny Cash's "Hurt") others quite the opposite. Sufjan Stevens's "Such Great Heights" is good, but it just feels wrong. It's slow and the electronic beeps for the original by The Postal Service just went well with the melody
Watch "The Kinks - Father Christmas" on YouTube
Goddamn I love this song
Last night, after maybe 10 years of juuuuust missing them, we finally saw #TheNewPornographers at Brooklyn Steel.
Kind of an older crowd because holy crap this band is like 22 years old now! It’s always interesting to hear a crowds reaction to a band playing its “hits” that have never received any airplay whatsoever. And yeah, they brought all those hits, Letter From an Occupant, Sing Me Spanish Techno, The Laws Have Changed...if I wrote those songs I’d play them every night too.

no children- the mountain goats
Hearing ZVVL (Chvrches), which I'm pretty sure is about not being afraid to find yourself, play over the scene of Lucifer discovering someone stole his wings is hella bizarre, like a song about accepting death and reincarnation playing over a psychopath dancing in the skin suit he made and earlier a sex scene, or a couple bringing home their new baby to a song about dealing with your friend possibly ending up in an early grave due to drug abuse. People gotta listen to lyrics.
