Song of the Day #66 – The New Pornographers

When’s the last time you’ve seen an accordion used to good effect in a rock & roll song? Sorry, Weird Al Yankovik doesn’t count (although he is undeniably a genius in his own special realm). Today’s song is yet another awesome video from the Black Cab Sessions: a live performance of All the Old Showstoppers by a scaled down incarnation of The New Pornographers. This song is pure pop joy – listen to it a few times and it will be in your head all day. But In a good way. Not in a bad way like the Macarena, or “Who Let the Dogs Out” or that Crazy Frog song.
