Okay, many of you will think that I’m crazy (but that’s only because I am) but until recently I just didn’t get the Arcade Fire. Other than having a cool name, I didn’t get what made them stand out in a sea of indie bands. They did a cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Maps” that was unimpressive. They performed with Bowie and were underwhelming. But I had never actually seen the band. All I knew was that they were Canadian. The band is far far better live than on record. They are a frenetic band but their energy fails to come across in recordings. This is a time in my life where I feel the need to expand my own personal musical horizons. And I’m so glad that I’ve gotten to see what an Arcade Fire live performance is like. Just a simple reminder to myself that in music there are no limits.

Song 151- “Neighborhood #2 (Laika)” by the Arcade Fire (Live on Conan O’Brien)”

plus the studio version:

(the live version is much better but why not check out the quirky music video while we are here?)

And don’t forget to check out the other 10kdays journals! Glenn! Rachael! Andy! Heuristics Inc! and Troy!
