The Magnetic Fields - Covered

Taking Cover -

A couple of years ago I posted an embeded Vimeo video entitled "Yeah! Oh, Yeah!" which featured Nico Colaleos and Kali Fontecchio singing a heartwarming cover of The Magnetic Fields song "Yeah! Oh, Yeah!" Unfortunately that video was pulled and - despite my efforts to dig up the footage - BlogDogIt is now left with a hole in the form of a dead link. :(

So I asked myself, "Should I do something about that missing video?"
Of course the only obvious answer was "Yeah! Oh Yeah!"

With loins girded, I set out upon a quest to find a replacement cover of this classic tune. I watched several videos; ranging from mediocre to downright painful. Of course there where live-set videos of The Magnetic Fields performing the song (in assorted venue.) But I wanted to replace a cover with a cover.

And then it happened...

I came upon what is perhaps the ultimate version of "Yeah! Oh, Yeah!" It was smooth as silk (and twice as sexy) - Tracey Thorn and Jens Lekman totally confiscated the song.

What kind of a host would I be if I did not offer to share this with you?

"Yeah! Oh, Yeah!"
The Magnetic Fields-

Are you out of love with me?
Are you longing to be free?
Do I drive you up a tree?

Yeah! Oh, yeah!

Do I drive you up the wall?
Do you dread every phone call?
Can you not stand me at all?

Yeah! Oh, yeah!

Though I need you more than air
is it true you just don't care?
Are you having an affair?

Yeah! Oh, yeah!

When we met I thought
money was everything
so I let you buy the house,
the cars, the ring
but I can't take your perpetual whining
and you can't sing

I thought if we lived apart
we could make a brand-new start
Do you want to break my heart?

Yeah! Oh, yeah!

I've enjoyed making you
miserable for years
found peace of mind in
playing on your fears
How I loved to catch your gold
and silver tears, but now my dear

What a dark and dreary life
Are you reaching for a knife?
Could you really kill your wife?

Yeah! Oh, yeah!

Oh, I die, I die, I die!
So it's over, you and I
Was my whole life just a lie?

Yeah! Oh, yeah!


You may now wish to enjoy them individually...
