David Byrne and St. Vincent Perform “Who” on Fallon

September 12th, 2012 · Comments Off on David Byrne and St. Vincent Perform “Who” on Fallon

Got the circle spin of death over at NBC’s official Jimmy Fallon page, so I found this on Vimeo. I’m liking this record just about exactly as much as I thought I would. The David Byrne parts appeal to me, and I can leave or take St. Vincent’s contributions. This song in particular works well […]
