Late Night: Give Them What They Want

For Ned Lamont and the voters of Connecticut tonight, here's a very spirited and happy "Give Them What They Want" performed by Michael Stipe of REM and Natalie Merchant of 10,000 Maniacs (who looks goregeous) at the 1993 MTV Inaugural Ball for Bill Clinton and Al Gore. Turn the volume way up on your speakers so you get the full effect.

Last night it took me six hours to go from VHS to You Tube, tonight it only took me an hour. (There's a lot of steps, from processing to dubbing to finalizing and then to converting, editing and uploading.) I haven't figured out how to enhance the sound, so you will have to turn the volume way up on your computers, but it's a great song, it's worth it.

    Nice video, they looked really happy. Very appropriate for the post Lamont win. And, congratulations on your learning curve, soon you will be a streaming video pro.

    It's too bad it cuts off short.

    I have this on CD. Also on the CD is a duet with David Byrne and a cover version of To Sir With Love. Good stuff.

    Hello TL -- I love thqat you've been posting so much music-related stuff. Have you ever heard of Kirsty Maccoll? I was just listening to a live version of her song "Free World" which is well worth tracking down. (Emusic has it, not sure where else.)

    speaking of good music that more people should give a listen to. Order Michale Franti's latest CD YellFire and his DVD I Know I'm Not Alone. Very powerful stuff - both of em.
