He hit me and I knew he loved me
"He Hit Me" might be one of the least likely candidates for a Grizzly Bear recommendation to some, but not for me. This isn't to say that it's my favourite by them or think it's even remotely definitive of their style. After all, the song is actually a cover of the Crystals who originally wrote it in '62. I personally really like their own take on it musically.
Favourite Part: Definitely the lyrics. I mean, they were definitely more powerful & meaningful when written by a group of four black women in the '60s, but now I just find it hilarious to hear a group of four white guys singing the same song. Is this wrong of me?
I came across this video of Feist performing the famous "1234" on "The Today Show" with Grizzly Bear doing backup vocals and hand claps in the background. Just thought I'd share it with you:
