Late Night Music 11/30/09

A couple of reruns and a musical theater act. Yup.

11:30pm on Letterman (CBS)
Rerun from 10/29/09
Yeah they're still cranking out albums that exactly half of their fans will kind of like. Promoting their new album Raditude, Weezer plays the incredibly infectious tune "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To." I actually really dig this performance because they play with the entire Late Show band, horns and all. It sounds pretty decent. If you don't want to stay up to watch it you can check it out here.

The Cast of Mary Poppins
11:35pm on Conan (NBC)
Why wouldn't you watch this. Put your pride aside and embrace your secret love for broadway show tunes. I haven't seen the stage version of this but I hear it's pretty good. Mary Poppins is one of my favorite movies (it's right up there with Full Metal Jacket and Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and I've never met anyone who had something bad to say about it. While we're on the subject, listen to this song. It's amazing. I would suggest not actually watching the video because it just takes away from the song itself.

Death Cab for Cutie
12:05 on Kimmel (ABC)
Death Cab performs "Meet Me on the Equinox" from... wait... really... from... the New Moon Soundtrack? Really?! Oh... okay. Well. That's just fine. That's.... no. NO! I'm sorry but am I expected to believe that Ben Gibbard sat down at his house, watched exclusive scenes from the movie and was inspired to write this song? This pretty good song? This song that I really kind of love? Damn. The Twilight Saga owns me. Once again. Here's the video if you don't want to watch Jimmy Kimmel (because who really wants to watch ABC late night?).

This time it's real (like the tower of power song)

Okay so I've said this before. But this blog is going to be updated daily starting Monday Nov 30th. For real this time. I have a debt to pay to society. So there.

Check back Nov 30th! Weezer, Mary Poppins and Death Cab for Cutie posts. How can you miss out on that?
