Clap Your Hands Say Mihow!

Today, I was on the L Train grooving out. Quite literally, actually. I really was dancing at the time, but only the upper part of my body was getting down as the bottom half had to act as anchor to keep from falling. I was grooving out to Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. (Which, for some reason, I can’t seem to say their name correctly. Each time I want to put an “and” in there. It’s Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. OK then.)

I figured that today was a most excellent day to give our some free music and REALLY piss TJ off by sucking up whatever transfer time we have left on our dedicated server. (Sorry, baby!)

I had a lot of trouble trying to figure out WHICH song to put up. I couldn’t decide between Heavy Metal, The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth, Upon This Tidal Wave Of Young Blood or the one that makes me feel randy called Gimme Some Salt. I can’t explain the randiness. I think it’s his lack of annunciation that does it. He sort of sounds like he’s either suffered from a recent head injury (Toby doesn’t refer to them as Clap Your Hands Fuck Annunciation for nothing) or he’s letting us witness something sloppy and dirty and sexy.

Is this Love was up there, too. But I knew I could only choose but one. And the winner is Heavy Metal. While everyone needs to hear The Skin Of My Yellow Country Teeth it’s 8 mgs. Gimme Some Salt would have been perfect, but I didn’t want to blue ball the Internet.

Enjoy! Heavy Metal 5.6 MGS. (If you’re on a Mac, control click, download to desktop. If you’re on a PC, I think you right click or something.)

You can thank me by buying my Bush T-shirts. What was I thinking? haha

(Edited at 4:05 PM—I think I should have stuck with the “slower” song. Greg hates it. Part of the world has ended. Oh, but you can still clap and say mihow. I’d like that.)

  4. Hey, Mihow- would you be offended if a bunch of us kids submitted goofy pictures for SPD.com? Or would that just be a pain in the keister for you?

    I am feeling naughty and monkeylike.

  5. Please do, Amanda B. It’s slowly coming to an end. Pumping some more life into it would rule. The sky is the limit. A theme might even be nice. :]

  7. The wizard. AKA Gerald. He often introduces me to music. Has for over 15 years.
    Funny story. Every time we were in his car recently he’d put them on. And there was this one song called “This Year” that I fell in love with immediately. I can still picture us all silently listening as we drove to wherever he was taking us.
    Days when by, I kept asking for the CD. Finally, Toby got it for me. And I began to forward through all the songs in search of that one. It wasn’t on there.
    I called TJ to complain. He apologized up and down.
    The next time I saw Gerry I said he had to get me that song. While I loved the entire CD, I wanted that song. I found out the hard way it wasn’t even written by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. It was written by Mountain Goats. Boy, did I feel dumb. haha

    A scenario we’ll call “Kicking the Gift Horse in the Teeth”

  13. greg, you’ll be glad to know that i borrowed the descendents “all” cd from a friend today just to show you that i am trying to keep it real. such a great cd. i also sent mihow a live version of quicksand’s “clean slate” last week- i doubt she ever listened to that though. i should send it to you, someone who will actually appreciate it! speaking of walter, did you hear that gorilla biscuits is getting back together for a reunion show at cbgb’s this month? i have been wearing x’s on my hands (and a beer in my hand) to show my support!

  17. Weird, they make no mention of the kind of girls who develop said crush and then proceed to tell you how much they hate you and how much of a bitch you are. I’m going to write that article tomorrow. Quote me on that one.

  18. I have a crush on you Mihow, and I will not call you a bitch ever. My love is not superficial. ;D
