It's physically impossible for me not to feel better after listening to Beat Happening. Just some of the most funnest music to listen to.

You're my fortune cookie prize. <3

Agreed. Their first 2 albums are both 5 star records for me. Just such deliriously childish and happy nonsense about basically being 9 years old.

Dum Dum, Had a heart attack.

That line always sticks in my head for some reason.

I'm naming my film production company after one of their songs. And I just got a Calvin in the Indian Summer video haircut—probably should have cut it myself though.

You Turn Me On
Black Candy
Jamboree
Dreamy
Beat Happening

YTMO was such a perfect farewell, but the Angel Gone single really makes me wish they'd stuck around.

I love You Turn Me On, Jamboree and their s/t to bits. Don't know which is my favourite, Jamboree possibly.

It's not like Dreamy and Black Candy aren't really good either, but they never made an album which wasn't at least very good. Also the Music to Climb the Apple Tree by compilation is great too.

I want to here their EPs and some of the rarities though I've heard a couple and they are really good.

I have never seen the music video for Indian Summer, will have to watch that.

The Bewitched video is the best one. I nominated it for the tournament. Impossible for me to watch it without laughing.

Just seen the video for Crashing Through as well and his gancing on that is awesome too. :mrgreen:

Also, this is Calvin's best haircut. :smile: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsIZg74mLt8

Yeah, he was really cute in his prime. Looked a lot like Manuel Neuer which is obviously a big plus.
