As most of us know Andrew Bird makes slightly out of the mainstream pop music that at times can sound chaotic, sloppy, awkward, and occasionally bad. There are some songs, though, on which Mr. Bird's creativity and poise shine through in sparkling clarity. The song Tables and Chairs immediately comes to mind as a quick example. It's as if Andrew has such a load of influences and ideas for songs that if he isn't careful they all compete with his sound and muddy up his songs.
Posted below is one song that defies the trappings that Mr. Bird can fall into on his albums and shines through as a true example of the genius that he is capable of. Here it is my friends, enjoy.
