Your Song of the Week That I Could’ve Sworn I Posted Before

My Morning Jacket – One Big Holiday (live)

I really don’t know why I haven’t posted this video before. Maybe I’ve just sent to it so many people that I thought I had put it on my blog at some point. I don’t remember specifically, but this video was definitely one of my first experiences with My Morning Jacket, and I was blown away and almost mad that I hadn’t listened to them before. Not too many bands are this awesome live. I think Okonokos, their live double album, should be in every rock collection. I think they’ve finally started to become somewhat popular, but with their latest album they decided to change their style up COMPLETELY (for the worse). Maybe that’s why they became popular, I don’t know. I do know that they are better than most of the new bands I hear on K-Rock. Not that I really listen. And maybe they’re shown on Fuse or something. I don’t even know what music is mainstream now; I only know what’s popular on the internets. Maybe that’s becoming one and the same. But I digress.

I wish I was watching Conan religiously at that point in time (2003, it appears), as I would’ve made sure to attend one of their concerts ASAP. I haven’t done that now, though. Hmm. That reminds me, I’ve been meaning to make a post about Conan since his run on Late Night ended. Favorite late night show host ever — the only one I ever felt at home with. Unfortunately, he did not have musical guests as good as MMJ often.
