Some Chicago Boyz know each other from student days at the University of Chicago. Others are Chicago boys in spirit. The blog name is also intended as a good-humored gesture of admiration for distinguished Chicago School economists and fellow travelers.

My wife turned me on to this song last year. I’m a fan of the”official alternate” video. If only because there were signs making it clear what she’s saying! :)
Two years ago at Lollapalooza my wife and I got up front and saw them at the main stage at noon they put on a great show. Agreed this isn’t the official video there was another one with day-glo signs and stuff that was interesting but this way you see more of Stacey or whatever her name is :) which is good.
Whatever, and I’ll never know because a sign came up on the screen saying that Vevo, whoever they are when they’re at home, has blocked the video because of copyright content.
That link has the original video not the “plainer” one. Worked for me though.
Great tune; great band (though I prefer Shut Up And Let Me Go). Don’t care what the political affiliation is! Superior convertible music.
Catchy. That’s why I put it up.
The political views of popular musicians are beneath my notice.
….but, but: I get ALL of my political directives from entertainers in popular culture! I mean, why analyze a really complex problem that makes my head hurt when I can just read People and find out how Brad Pitt or Lady Gaga feel about it? If the two of them disagree, I usually default to Britney or Lindsey (no last names needed) as a tiebreaker.
I have it on my iPod. The whole album is fun.
Of course, I’d never heard of this group, but my 10 year old saw the video playing on my laptop and has been humming the tune since—thanks:))
My daughter had her Sweet 16 party of few weeks ago.
After I set up the sound system, that’s the song I used to ring it in.
