Yo La Tengo Takes Requests

posted by on February 29 at 15:31 PM

WFMU, the realest (coolest, awesomest, sweetest, tightest) radio station in the country, is doing their annual fund-drive right now. They only have one a year because they are fucking REAL, hear me?

Anyhow, part of their fund-drive tradition is an in-studio performance from Yo La Tengo, but not just any in-studio—Yo La is taking requests:

We’ve been blessed with the annual ritual since 1996: each WFMU marathon our good New Jersey neighbors (give or take a New Yorker or two) Yo La Tengo have graciously dragged their gear down to our studios and helped us raise cash by attempting to play requested covers for real live pledgers. Any request. Were they ever afraid of falling on their faces by not knowing the chords to “Rock the Boat” or “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet”? Hell no.

I think Line Out should choose a song to submit. Since I was planning to pledge anyway, I’ll just act as your superdelegate.

Which song should Yo La Tengo play for Line Out?

Of course, feel free to throw superior suggestions in the comments. Poll closes Sunday at 5, when the show starts.

UPDATE: I added Justin Timberlake’s “My Love” to the poll because I decided I would really like them to play that.
