BSE (TW) Best Song Ever (This Week): “Snake Mistakes” by Dan Deacon

Oh man. Dan Deacon is a WEIRDO!
Is he in a state of arrested development or something? I wish I had been in the studio for this performance on some morning news station in Georgia. They seem totally freaked out:
What a freak! But I lurves him, and I lurves the song “Snake Mistakes” so much I picked it for this week’s Best Song Ever.
You can listen to it here.
I’m pretty sure this song is about three things: a snake making mistake, someone getting mad at bees, and someone having a really cool dad. Any of the following could be possible: Dan Deacon feels like a snake, Dan Deacon gets really pissed at bees that hover, Dan Deacon has a really cool dad. But somehow I really don’t think Dan Deacon is writing about himself. I think he’s writing from some alternate universe where he could inhabit the bodies of multiple beings at once and direct them in a massive piece of theater that could solve global warming.
Oh, and it’s funky as hell.
