This song is so nutty it's to die for! Heard it on BNW tonight. It's a Sun Ra blues tune, but Yo La Tengo uses a children's choir to sing backup! Too brilliant!


they're talking about nuclear war

mutation
radiation

if they push that button
you can kiss your ass
goodbye goodbye

it's a motherfucker!
don't you know?

if they push that button
your ass got to go

what you going to do
without your ass?

goodbye ass


I've never heard the Sun Ra original but I can't see how he'd top this, I love this cover! And I suspect in this case it's kind of like the Langley Schools Project, where big time song hits are overshadowed by their amateurish versions.
