A few months ago, First Mate started talking about Live From Daryl’s House and how awesome it is. I don’t know what rock I’ve been under, but that was the first I’d heard of the show, even though it’s been on for years apparently. But who doesn’t love Hall & Oates? So I checked it out. It’s this really well produced, high quality web show where Daryl Hall asks other musicians come over to his house in upstate New York and ride bikes together. Just kidding about the bikes, but it would be really cool if they did. Daryl Hall has a sweet music studio set up in a barn and they play some Hall & Oates stuff, some of the guest musician’s stuff, they eat together and chat, and there’s even a cooking segment. The first episode we watched was the Cee Lo Episode. It’s freakin’ fantastic and I can’t wait to watch more.
It got me thinking though, about Gnarls Barkley and how great Danger Mouse and Cee Lo are both together and separately.
Gnarls Barkley – “Smiley Faces” from St. Elsewhere
Danger Mouse – “Encore” from The Grey Album
Cee Lo Green – “It’s OK” from The Lady Killer (sorry about the ad)
And just for a little extra fun, some pre-Gnarls Barkley:
Danger Doom – “A.T.H.F.”
Goodie Mob – “Soul Food”
I hear that both Gnarls Barkley and Goodie Mob are supposed to be releasing albums this year. Can’t wait.
