Midweek Video: Yo La Tengo play Springfield

Yo La Tengo were playing a show in Springfield, Missouri, and they felt it was rather appropriate to start with an instrumental TV theme.



I think I'd like to see the seedier version of The Simpsons this would go along with. It sort of reminds me of Jack White's intro to Loretta Lynn's Portland, Oregon.

Great video. Appropriate since YLT actually did a psychedelic version of the theme song for the closing credits of an actual episode. I think it was the one when homer goes into business with those former dirty hippies.

Arjan: It sounds sort of like the work they did for some nature documentaries.

Thom: I will have to look into that.
