The Bird And The Bee: A Debt To Nouvelle Vague

This song is a lot of fun, and will appeal to anyone who liked Nouvelle Vague’s bossa nova renditions of new wave classics. I also like “F***ing Boyfriend” although the video for that track isn’t done. This video, for “Polite Dance Song,” is directed by Eric Wareheim of “Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show Great Job,” which should give you an idea of the aesthetic at work here: Silly, deliberately amateurish, but also sincere in some twisted, roundabout way.
