    No guitar??? ***???
    I literally watch this all day long. I go to bed, its in my head, I wake up, its still there.
    This is the finest vocal performance I have ever seen. i just can't get enough. Plus, its Dave's favorite new band.
    Why do I like this so much?
    Watch it a few times and forgive the pick.
    Killer performance!!!

    Whatever floats your boat - we all like different things. I listened for 14 seconds and felt that dreadful "this is the 80s again, isn't it?" feeling and had to pass.

    Agreed, to each his own. Happy you found something that hits the sweet spot for you though :)

    I'm not sure if I love this or hate it. It was kind of awesome. I've never heard of these guys.

    I'm not sure what I found more bizarre. That Greg Kelly fronts a band, or that Ellen plays bass.

    You need to watch it through 15-20 times.
    Not to mention, I have never seen Dave like a bands performance more than this one.
    I wasn't crazy about it after my first viewing, but it grows on you like a fungus.

    Didn't sound terrible. Doesn't melt my butter. I found the singer to be pretentious and annoying.

    Did the singer survive? Seemed like he was having a bad go there.

    I'm slightly surprised that David Letterman has better taste than the average TB'er.
    I mean....this isn't TGP where I would expect negative comments.

    Wow....what a bunch of noisy garbage! I was making that kind of noise 20 years ago....Dave was less than enthused.
    Oh well....thats what makes the world go around and why Justin Beeber is popular. I guess some people can't listen to the actual musical quality of certain songs.

    Sometimes you just have to tell your friends that they can't dance.

    No ... sorry, could only watch a minute of that. Boring song, embarrasing "dancing".

    But life would be boring if we all liked the same things, no? :)

    This. Male equivalent of Elaine Benis. I've heard enough synth swell chords in the eighties to last me a lifetime.
