I got two hands on the sunshine
I got one foot in the grave
I got 25 cents in my wallet
And I'm feeling mighty lucky today
Hey, hey

My bones are made out of ivory
And my blood is made out of ocean waves
And someone stole my wallet
But I'm feeling mighty lucky today
Hey, hey

I agree - this album has really grown on me too - for the same reasons.  I'll admit this is my upload.  And I was convinced I shouldn't try another one...but this one positive response.....I think i will.  Stay Tuned.....

I agree that much of their music is not so easy on the ears at first and I am NOT much of a ... I don't know what to call this music (college-independent-poppy-Seattlish stuff?) but it usually is not my thing.  But after repeated listenings I've gotta say this album (Advice/Hippo whatever) really grew on me.  I'd ask for some of the other tunes off this album but there's several good cuts.  Not that I like 'em cause they're "catchy" pop tunes but I think they've got something going lyrically/muscially.  Even if it's a bit too electro for me at times.  Anyway, from an old-school rock 'n roller, I think this is an album worth getting to know.

I liked this song when I first heard it (even the "disjointedness" of it), but it was killed for me by that Esurance TV commercial as well.


Looks like the Peanut Gallery is unconvinced, but these guys sure sound like they're having a load of fun!  {#Propeller}

Nope.


Too bad the e-surance commercial already kind of turned me off to this one.

I find this band's music to be annoying. I don't care for the vocals, either.
