Cette Chose Que Vous Faites!

From just a few weeks or so ago, please enjoy The Weeklings -- featuring Glen Burtnick, a guy with a great rock-and-roll resume as long as your arm -- and their video for a transplendent cover of the title song from the Tom Hanks movie classic That Thing You Do!

Let me add a couple of things at this juncture.

Number one: This is just fucking awesome, period.

Number two: I love that there's a photo of the song's composer (Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne) on the wall behind Burtnick.

And number three: Schlesinger was one of the early COVID deaths last year; I blame that completely on President Schmucko, and have no doubt that it alone will make him (Trump) rot in hell for all eternity.

Okay, now that I've got that off my chest, let me just add that you can (and should) purchase the Weeklings new album over at Amazon HERE.

I should also add that if you haven't seen the movie, get the Blu-Ray version (also at Amazon); it has about ten minutes of additional footage that was edited out of the theatrical and DVD versions, and which sheds some interesting light on the Hanks character.

Agreed. The is fucking awesome. And a shout our to Mike Viola who I believe did the original vocal and perhaps has co-writing with Adam Schlesinger.

I actually had never seen the movie until I rented it this summer. It is wonderful.
