Love this one. I've been diving head first (pun mildly intended, sorry) into the Talking Heads discography lately. There is just an infinite amount of intangible stuff to like about this band. Look at how much life David Byrne gives to even the simplest and most human of concepts:

I haven't got the faintest idea;
everything seems to be up in the air at this point.
But then also look at what a weirdo he is. The lighting at this show makes him look like The Scream.

Happy Thanksgiving

At this time of reflection, I am truly thankful for all you out there in the internets for spending your time here at Every Day, Another Song.  It has been quite the year and had I not felt the love coming back from the international blog-browsing community, I don't know if I would have stuck with it. Bet you think I don't have a sick Thanksgiving Song... You thought wrong.  

Song #358: William DeVaughn - Be Thankful For What You Got

BONUS SONG: Two Asian Guys on a Bed covering "Be Thankful For What You Got"

Cut My Hair

So I got my haircut today. It had been a pretty long time since the last one and things were getting a little out of control. BUT to commemorate my recently shorn locks, I play David Crosby's follicular anthem. Picture here, if you are interested, (I went with the pensive look).

Song #356: CSNY - Almost Cut My Hair

Carlton and the Misprints

This little known, but widely appreciated Reggae outfit led by Carlton Manning caught my eye before it caught my ear. A name like Carlton and the Shoes is just so simply humble that I was immediately enticed to give it a listen. I'm extremely glad I did, because what I discovered was a forgotten gem from the archives of Studio One. The Shoes' debut record however was meant to read Carlton and The Shades, but a misprint ended up labeling them Carlton and The Shoes and the name stuck. 

Song #355: Carlton & The Shoes - Never Give Your Heart Away

South African rap stars Die Antwoord recently took the US by storm with a series of Hardcore performances. Afrikaans for "The Answer," Ninja (seen below with Yours Truly) and Yo-landi Visser give us a look into the impoverished white ghettos and the effect of Apartheid on both ends of the spectrum. Spoiler alert: It's horrible and extremely depressing. These rappers try to supplant those black and white memories with a new concept, Zef. Female half, Yo-landi explains, "Zef is, you're poor but you're fancy. You're poor but you're sexy, you've got style." Watch the video below to see them in their natural (NSFW) habitat.
