The Strokes - A Secret Song

The Strokes are fucking awesome. I try to rarely cuss in my blog, a complete departure from my everyday life, but they deserve it. One of their more recent songs is actually one of my favorite, "You Only Live Once" from the 2006 album First Impressions of Earth (I don't want to even hear it music nerds, this was album had some gems). It is upbeat, catchy, and has the trademark Julian Casablancas vocals. However, this was not the original song they were going to feature on the album. The demo was much slower, more of a rock lullaby, a collection of mottos and past experiences. The song was called "I'll Try Anything Once". This title/statement is certainly in my constitution and is on a short list for epithets.
I did not know about it until a Julian Casablancas solo show, promoting his 2009 album Phrazes for the Young, on March 24. In the middle of a set that was exclusively songs from his album, he played "I'll Try Anything Once" with only a little keyboard to help him. It was poignant, he sounded great, and just fucking awesome. The high from attending the show ended up launching one of the crazier nights I have had since moving to NYC where Miller High Life, A Black Key, A Moldy Peach, a Yeah from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, expensive cigarettes, and a basement bar were all part of the background.
I have since recovered but only been able to find the song on YouTube. I have included the video with the best quality and a video montage. You can try some of the Live videos if you don't mind the chatter of the audience, the outfit and the stage presence Mr. Casablancas has almost makes it worth it. I listen to this song a few times a week, it fits any mood, and I finally thought it was time to share.
It also good vacation packing music, just keep hitting replay or work it into a Casablancas-heavy playlist of your own. I will credit this song for the efficient bag I have packed for Colombia, assuming I make the 6:30am flight...

  7. The only intention of this device is that to provide you the same essence of smoking but in
    a much safer way and this is only possible with herbs.
    Cigarette smoke is extremely irritating to the lining of the throat.
    The habituated smokers should be slowly persuaded that they can do it and that it is nothing impossible.
