Ca Plane Pour Moi (Live)

More covers than a branch of Bed Bath & Beyond, these lads, but this one’s a keeper. If you think you don’t know this fantastically gonky song, originally recorded by Belgian pop-punker Plastic Bertrand
in 1978, you’re wrong. You’ve never heard it this way before though: a perfect preppy geek-out live on French TV show Taratata, with Ezra Koenig showing off his admirable Gallic accent. That’s the kind of enunciation an Ivy League education gets you, kids.
