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

posted by on July 27 at 11:48 AM

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.

Dan Deacon is hard to explain to those who've never seen him live.

I can't imagine what is going through that newscasters head as he watched this performance unfold.
