Finally, something worth listening to on America’s National Public Radio!
Apparently NPR has eased its “Never have anything interesting on” format, and has allowed a free listen to the new She & Him modern-meets-retro album “Classics” which will be released on December 2.
You can hear the entire album, or listen to individual songs at the NPR website link here.
WARNING: NPR has put a 10 second self advertisement before the album starts. Just try not to die of boredom in that time …
I love it of course. Zooey’s singing is sweet, but old-timey. She does great justice to the singers of the 40s, 50s, 60s etc. Was that Matt imitating Louis Armstrong on “Stars Fell on Alabama”?
- “Stars Fell on Alabama”
2. “Oh No, Not My Baby”
3. “It’s Not for Me to Say”
4. “Stay Awhile”
5. “This Girl’s in Love With You”
6. “Time After Time”

10. “Unchained Melody”
11. “I’ll Never Be Free”
12. “Would You Like to Take a Walk”

What FUN! I suggest just starting the album and minimizing it. You can work at your desk, and have a great time with this authentic sounding retro trip. I am going to close my office door, and listen to it all morning. I will be filling out those agricultural chemical purchasing forms with a big smile on my face tomorrow.
Oh, Zooey-chan you are so wonderful …
… now if you will excuse me I will be busy fainting in happiness.
All She and Him albums are available as a high quality vinyl record. If you want me to send you one for Christmas, just ask.
