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?

I found these recordings laying around the internet and brought them here to promote these artist.
If you enjoy these folks buy their albums.
If you are these folks and want me to take down these songs - just ask.
