Maps ♪


The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are one of my all-time favorite bands. Karen O. is quite possibly one of the coolest people on the face of the entire planet.  This is an acoustic version of ‘Maps’ that I adore…

My OTHER favorite song of theirs is their cover of ‘Diamond Sea.’ It’s so much more desolate than the original Sonic Youth version, and Karen’s voice is lovely, which is why I kind of prefer it. I couldn’t find a good video, so here’s a link to the song that someone was kind enough to put on youtube:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Diamond Sea (iTunes Acoustic Session)

Speaking of Karen O., she also did the soundtrack to the film “Where the Wild Things Are.” I taught this song to my 6th graders (it has a lot of cool things in it, like shouting HEY! and whistling and saying oooh oooh oohh). They really enjoy singing it.

I haven’t done a “Things I love Thursday” post in quite some time.

These are some songs I love. How about you? What have you been listening to lately?
