Listening Post: Bonus "Let the Weekend Begin" Edition
I already posted this song the minute audio for it was made available, being that these guys are one of my favorite bands in the world. Well, now there's a video for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Let the Day Begin, a cover of an excellent song from one of the most underrated groups of the 80s, the Call.
The late father of BRMC's Robert Levon Been, Michael Been, was the Call's brilliant frontman -- and doing this song is a great choice for the band, since it's wonderfully uplifting and a great tribute to the elder Been. The video reflects the joy expressed in the song perfectly. It also, I have to admit, kind of lets you know that this song is going to inevitably end up as a beer commercial or something like that.
Anyway, here's Let the Day Begin.
