FUN - "Some Nights"
Initially, I saw FUN performing "Carry On" on SNL Live the Saturday after hurricane Sandy hit New York. I was struck by the odd percussion with the slight melodic Celtic overtones. I liked the song, so I went on iTunes to purchase it. That's how I found "Some Nights". This time the percussion was more African in rhythm and tempo. Strong. Powerful. That's when I went on YouTube to find the videos. I was not prepared for the Civil War background of this song, but it fits.
Take a listen. And I dare you not to tap your foot to the beat.
