Tune in Tuesday with Katelyn: I’ll be gone in a day or two

Tune in Tuesday - Cover EditionIt’s the second week of Tune in Tuesday’s cover theme, and I decided that I definitely needed to feature a Reel Big Fish cover! RBF was one of my favorite bands in college; I’ve seen them live more than once, and they are still solidly on my iPod rotation. They’re so goofy and high-energy and self-deprecating, and they’ve put their ska/punk twist on a bunch of really fun songs! I actually had trouble deciding between their version of “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Take on Me,” but ultimately I decided to go with the latter. (But go here for “Boys Don’t Cry” if you want it!) I love how they replaced the catchy synthesizer line with brass instruments! So here’s Reel Big Fish covering “Take on Me,” originally performed by A-ha. P.S., the original video is a thing of beauty!
