Videos – Jonathan Coulton – “I’m Your Moon”, Descendents – “When I Get Old”, R.E.M. – “Falls to Climb”

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

I was busy last night, playing a lot of acoustic songs for videos. I settled on three.

“I’m Your Moon” (Jonathan Coulton)

First up, an acoustic cover of “I’m Your Moon”, which is a beautiful love song between Pluto and Charon. Carrie and I wish that we’d known about this song for our wedding, as it would have been our first dance (it was “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds, which doesn’t rally have much of a beat).

“When I Get Old” (Descendents)

Next up is some punk rock introspection from the Descendents.

“Falls to Climb” by R.E.M.

Finally, in honor of their breakup announcement, here’s one of my favorite tracks from R.E.M. This is my go-to cheer-up song. I guess the original recording was mostly acoustic and mandolin-based, then Michael Stipe replaced all that with some synthesizers. Crazy Michael!

ALL / Descendents

I’m really tired of people saying how much they like the Descendents over ALL… it’s the same band, for Christ’s sake!

So, unless Milo Aukerman is pretty much the band, shut up! Apparently, ALL and Descendents songs are routinely switched and demoed between the two bands. Milo doesn’t even write all the songs!

So back off, and give the ‘band’ (Karl, Stephen, and Bill) some credit, as opposed to just the singer. They both rock!
