Whoa! OMFG! (and otherise: click here, check this out, etc)

Vivienne Long's "yoshimi" cover is so smooth and haunting and soulful it's beyond belief. I thought the Flaming Lips took down ideas from my head and made an awesome song out of all the mess, but Long REALLY came up with something here and the justification/redemption moral of the song is entirely different. If the Lips' version was michael Crichton, Long's is Hemmingway or Fitzgerald; an audio Kirusawa.

"oh yoshimi/ they don't believe me/ that you won't let those robots eat me…."

No matter the combination, me + her > against the world is a winning and universal theme. Thank-you.
