This Tuesday’s Tune: “Gone Daddy Gone” by Violent Femmes
Gone Daddy Gone is a song I discovered recently and I am hooked! The song has got such a raw feel to it and such weirdly wonderful use of the xylophone! Great that it popped up on my playlist!
Now I need to hear more by the Violent Femmes. This underrated 80’s band was way ahead of their time in my opinion.
It’s definitely got this whole mellow feel to it, but with a bit of a kick. I kind of want to listen to this while watching someone learn to surf. Is that weird.
Here’s mine: Vicariously!
Thanks! Yeah mellow but with a kick describes Gone Daddy Gone perfectly! 🙂
Oh my word, I totally forgot about that song! The video is so weird… but that’s really kind of their thing, isn’t it? lol Thanks very much!
You’re welcome! This video may be weird but not weirder than the one I featured last week! 😉
I totally forgot about this song! It’s so fun to dance to :]
My Tune in Tuesday Playlist
I always at least tap my feet when I listen to Gone Daddy Gone!
Haven’t heard this song in ages. The Femmes were one of my favorite groups back in the late 80s/early 90s. I saw them in concert in 1992 at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. So much energy from such a simple assemblage of 3 musicians with no elaborate lighting or special effects. The crowd was super into the whole concert.
We need your feedback!
Blogging from A to Z
Ah glad to see someone who is a fan of the Violent Femmes and have actually seen them in concert! That must have been great!
catchy-but as you say- raw
I really like the raw feel that the song has! Sounds more real somehow unlike most music out there.
That was so catchy, I’m definitely going to have to download this so I can listen to it over and over!
It is pretty catchy. I can never listen to Gone Daddy Gone without pressing the replay button!
