Late Night Music: These Are the Days

I'm in need of a little lift tonight. This song always does it. Here's a video I made from my VHS tape of Natalie Merchant and 10,000 Maniacs singing These Are the Days at President Clinton's MTV Inugural Ball in 1993. I love the way she starts dancing in the middle. As always with songs from this tape, turn up your computer volume to hear it, the tape is very old.

    I used to have a "little lift" video of my own, back before my old Dell consumed it in a fit of pique. It was a clip of Natalie performing "Carnival" on SNL, and she started dancing even before the music began. There's something carefree and entirely enjoyable about watching her twirl around in weird skirts and big ol' boots.
