Yeasayer – ‘Reagan’s Skeleton’
You’ll find that you’re casually singing about dead presidents while buying stamps
A grower not a shower, this one. The chorus has a weird whiff of ‘Blame It On The Boogie’ about it and the end’s a bit Metronomy (always a good thing). But aside from that it’s pretty unremarkable. At first. Later, you’ll find that there are weird, squelching electronics humming through your brain and that you’re casually singing about dead presidents while buying stamps. Damn you, Yeasayer.
