Hidden Cameras, “Learning The Lie”

I’ve been a lukewarm The Hidden Cameras fan for about a year and a half now. Ever since I randomly downloaded some mp3 off a blog and fell in love. In the past little bit, I’ve downloaded and bought any of their songs I could get my hands on. Now THC have released a 7″ of four demos from their upcoming album, Awoo. You can order Learning the Lie here

MP3: The Hidden Cameras – Learning the Lie
If someone could give me the name of the oldies tune that this song reminds me of, I’d be pretty thankful. While most of the lyrics are muddled, mumbled or otherwise unintelligable, the melody is still pretty darn catchy. I hope for your sake, no one catches you singing the ‘wo, do, do, dooo’ part of this song out loud (because you will). (Update: It reminds me of ‘Sunshine Superman’ by Donovan. Thanks Adam!)

NOTE: I’m back in Elizabethtown. I love Atlanta a whole lot, but for some reason, it was wearing me out on this trip. I think I took four naps in three days. I’m an old man and I’m not even twenty years old.

  1. Holy shit, I always assumed you were older and now you mention you’re not even twenty[I just checked your Blogger profile, and it says you’re 19 years old]. Seriously, where does you’re great taste in music come from? Semi-hypothetical question, but otherwise keep up the good work!

  2. I didn’t manage telling you this earlier but you made my birthday with those Apples in stereo rarites. Also, your ‘Twelve Days of Mixmas’ is an amazing idea, congratulations for that.
    As for this Hidden Cameras song….I know what you mean…but I can’t get my ahead around which song it reminds me of either but I’m in love with it. It’s probably going to bug me all week now. Ah well, Merry Christmas and a happy New Year, I suppose, and keep up the great work. (Seriously, there’s nothing better than getting your daily YANP fix while having a perfectly nice cup of tea.)
