// sunday music: music for a found harmonium

Just the one pick for today’s sunday music, really – made famous by its appearance in Napoleon Dynamite, today’s music is Patrick Street‘s cover of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra’s Music for a Found Harmonium. It’s marvellous – quirky and cheerful, a lot like the film itself. Listen to it on grooveshark here, or there’s a Youtube video below:

I was also going to post a video of the prom scene from Napoleon Dynamite, soundtracked by Alphaville‘s original version of “Forever Young” and probably one of the most poignant depictions of teenage loneliness that I’ve seen on film. However, it’s not on Youtube, so you’ll have to make do with the tune here.

A band called Youth Group did a good job on it before Jay-Z got to it, too (listen to that here).

And that’s your lot for today – I’ll see you next Friday!

Sorry about the irregular posting the past two weeks, things have been crazy busy – I’ll be back to normal next week.
