Living Like a Hollywood

Gorgeous version of one of my favorite John Cale songs that will set up a review of the Decemberists with the LA Phil (strings!) at the Hollywood Bowl (practically Hollywood and Vine!!)I'm going to post at some point tonight.

This was an out-take of "Spinal Tap," right?

Anon, you have this clip confused with Cale's version of "Heartbreak Hotel." Which was a Spinal Tap out-take since Cale actually can sing in key.

Possibly my favorite Cale song - certainly my favorite to perform - but I think the strings just muddy it up. I keep trying to like this version, but I can't. Solo piano was the way to go.

The studio version is pretty awful - at least this is better than that.
