Five Yeah Yeah Yeah’s …

I’m sure New York indie rockers Yeah Yeah Yeah’s do not need an introduction.
As a great fan I want to share five of my favourite YYY’s moments …

1/ ‘Despair’, highlight of recent album ‘Mosquito’. Karen O’s performance at the Latitude festival (England) this summer says it all … from the heart and soul

2/ ‘Zero’ from 3th album ‘It’s a Blitz’ (2009). Simply one of the best pop songs of the 21th century …

3/ ‘Our Time’ from their first EP in 2001. The line ‘it’s our time to be hated’ struck me in the face the way singer Karen O articulated it over and over again. She obviously preferred to be hated instead of being ignored … (neither happened … she is famous and loved) …

4/ ‘A date with the night’ from their first album ‘Fever to Tell’ (2003). A tornado of a song & performance. It sounded like Karen O was excommunicating her demons. Move over… Iggy Pop …

5/ The album ’Show your Bones’ (2006). For me their best and complete album. Can’t make a choice from the tracklist …
