Time to Pretend (live) by Jónsi
originally by MGMT
It’s amazing how easy it is pretend (sorry…) that the lyrical content of this track isn’t pessimistic and depressing when listening to MGMT’s original. But with this somber piano version and Jónsi’s vocal stylings… man does this hit you as a big downer — but a beautiful one. I’m sure we’ll hear this at the end of a really dramatic episode of ‘House’ or ‘Gossip Girl’ or something. — Andy
Jónsi does everything right by me.
I like that he pronounces “vomit” as “womit”.
