En vivo

November 18, 2007 5:48 AM


This song was recorded live, as in "two people playing at the same time in a living room, recording into a minidisk," not as in "performing in front of an audience."

I showed it to a friend and he asked why if it was recorded "live" you couldn't hear the audience, which gave me the idea for the "audio pun" and so I stole the audience from an unplugged performance of someone else and inserted it here. So now it's live, and live. I'm sure some will recognize the song.

Hey man, your "audio pun" is awesome and really works well.

I've heard this song before, but I don't know where or when.

Is that you singing? Wow, not only are you nailing those handful of high notes but you have just a little bit of a "breathless" quality almost like you were dancing or something which makes it even more Live! Awesome!

That's actually the vocalist of the band singing. The song was originally written by Nat King Cole, it's called Nature Boy, and you've probably heard better versions of it by David Bowie and a lot of other people.

In that song I am the one banging the drum, which was one of those Peruvian bombos.

I don't know how to dance, but this makes me want to.

For some reason I imagined that this was you and your girl jammin out. I love it anyway, you guys make some really bright and happy music.
