Song of the Day: David Byrne and Fatboy Slim feat. Steve Earle – A Perfect Hand

A Perfect Hand by David Byrne, Fatboy Slim and Steve Earle


A Perfect Hand

Just your average compilation of a New Waver, 90’s dance star and a washed up Rockabilly(er), joining forces to make a song about a former dictator of the Philippines. Its the type of song that you just like at first in a comical sort of way, but then by the time the chorus rolls around for the third time you are growlin’ out the lyrics right along with Earle. It’s like Springsteen meets Andrew Lloyd Weber meets …Fat Boy Slim. And surprisingly, it rocks.
