Videos of the day: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (on Kimmel)

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros did two fantastic performances with That’s What’s Up and Man on Fire on Kimmel TV- Show last night, both songs are from their second album, Here, which came out May 29.

I saw them at last years Oya Festival in Oslo it was good, but my expectations were perhaps a bit too high…

After seeing these two clips I really look forward seeing them again this summer at Vikedal Roots Festival. I Believe it’s gonna be a better concert than the one in Oslo, I think they’re a better band now.

That’s What’s Up:

Man on Fire:

– Hallgeir

Video of the day: Spirit in the night (live) – Bruce Springsteen and The E-street Band

Today’s video is just a teaser to remind us that the Springsteen tour is heading our way. The clip is pro-shot and from this years Pinkpop festival in Landgraaf, Netherlands.

Great audience contact, great band, fantastic song!

Video of the day: Willin’ – Little Feat

Little Feat performing Willin’ probably their best known song. Written by and sung here by the hugely talented and sadly missed Lowell George Live at Rockpalast, Germany in 1977.

 

Lyrics, Willin‘:

I been warped by the rain, driven by the snow
I’m drunk and dirty, don’t ya know,
And I’m still willin’
Out on the road late last night,
Seen my pretty Alice in every head light
Alice, Dallas Alice

I’ve been from Tucson to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that’s ever been made
I’ve driven the back roads so I wouldn’t get weighed
If you give me: weed, whites, and wine
And you show me a sign
I’ll be willin’ to be movin’

I’ve been kicked by the wind, robbed by the sleet
Had my head stoved in, but I’m still on my feet
And I’m still… willin’
Now I smuggled some smokes and folks from Mexico
Baked by the sun, every time I go to Mexico
And I been from Tuscon to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonapah

I’ve driven every kind of rig that’s ever been made
I’ve driven the back roads so I wouldn’t get weighed
And if you give me: weed, whites, and wine
And you show me a sign I’ll be willin’ to be movin’

I also love Linda Ronstadt’s cover version from the classic album, Heart Like a Wheel (here live on Old Grey Whistle Test 1976):
