I feel like I should call today ‘Cover Wednesday’ but if I had talent I too would cover songs I wish I wrote so I understand. I saw a tweet from Fun. about their cover of Goyte’s ‘Somebody I Used to Know with Paramore’s Hayley Williams and I really liked it!! Yes its a song that’s been covered to death but I still like it. This recorded at BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.
I don’t usually watch commericals when I watch TV in fact i tend to tune them out but there was one partical song I found myself humming and before I knew it the song was being played on KROQ (LA radio station). I found out who the name of the band and song and added to my music collection.
Everytime I heard the song I became very curious about the other songs, after a quick listen on their Myspace (yes that place still exist) and knew I HAD to have this cd and have been playing it non-stop ever since. I haven’t been this giddy over a new cd since Wires In the Walls in November (ok I’m still giddy about Matt Corby but I still can’t get that EP just yet). But the reason I’m practically dancing in the streets?……Fun. will be at SxSW on March 14th!!
My list of MUST SEE’s is growing! I will me be a mental drunk mess…..so stay tuned for updates! Or drunken videos
