Song of the Day – “My Brain Is Like a Sieve” – Thomas Dolby

This great song from 1988’s Aliens Ate My Buick has a bonus on the original: a one-word spoken cameo from Ed Asner that was clipped from a 1960s crime drama (“Murder!”). That is not included in this live version from last year.

But that great harmony is. On the original Dolby doubled himself, but here the harmony is handled very well indeed by drummer Mat Hector. (“Dolby doubled”. There’s a This Is Spinal Tap joke in there, for anyone who is as obsessive about the movie as I am.)
