Friday Fun Tune (The Decemberists Get Silly)

The Decemberists have been covering "Your Love" by the Outfield live this spring (mp3 link). It's easy to dismiss indie bands who cover older pop tunes, but the Decemberists manage to make the experience fun for both themselves and the audience, even engendering a singalong.

This recording is taken from the March 22, 2004 Athens, Georgia show. (Thanks to Sharing The Groove, my favorite music resource)

Interesting: the Butchies also cover "Your Love" on Make Yr Life (in a slow ballady style), plus they do a pretty crunchy version of it live. Must be time for that song to come back to life...

"Your Love" is the new "Hey Ya" (okay, maybe not really).

You can get all the information on FLAC here:

You're welcome, Brad. Seems like the number of obnoxious people are in direct proportion to their distamnce from a tapers' microphones.
