Live, from one of those really expensive musical festivals… it’s LCD Soundystem!
I heard this for the first time a couple weeks ago: LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends.” Damn near every song off the Sound of Silver album is great, but this one struck me as a possible candidate for a prom song. You know, like in 80’s teen movies when they play some kind of soothing, rolling beat and meaningful lyrics emphasize character conflict, or resolutions thereof. There were the New Order songs in Pretty in Pink and the Simple Minds song, “Don’t You Forget About Me” playing at the end of The Breakfast Club. Songs you could close your eyes and get lost in. This one would be mine. (Cue the proud and fashionable ending).
The album version is better (thank you sharing-Nazi, Vevo, for disabling video embedding)… though I bet nothing could beat actually being there for this performance.
