Video of the Day, Coachella Countdown Edition: James, “Getting Away With It (All Messed Up)”

Share this post


You (and the girls you went to that wild college party with) probably know James best for that titillating tune of theirs that caused girls to spontaneously karaoke a certain lyric about, ahem, reaching the  top of the mountain and being on top of…things.  They are one of those sneaky great live bands, and will be playing Coachella this year and surely surprising many unaware of just how prolific their place in BritPop has been over the past three decades.  Attendees and their loved ones will certainly endorse the theme of this song,  “Getting Away With It (All Messed Up),” which serves to foreshadow a lot of Festival-goers’ weekend activities.  At the end of the madness, here’s hoping everyone walks away safe, sound, and asking each other a question, (with a pre-determined answer: AMAZING), “How Was it for You?”

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
