Music Monday: Tilly and the Wall - “Nights of the Living Dead”

December 19, 2011

I hope everyone is enjoying their break! I suppose that assumes you are on break. I am, and it feels good, man. Either way, today’s Music Monday features a band I heard first when seeing Bright Eyes in concert during the fall of 2004, Tilly and the Wall. I fell in love with the band immediately when their percussion section features three tap dancing women. It was something I had never seen before and absolutely loved it. To seal the deal, and obligate me to purchase their album Wild Like Children they played today’s Music Monday song “Nights of the Living Dead.”

With lyrics like:

“God put down your gun
Can’t you see we’re dead?
God put down your hand
We’re not listening
God put down your gun
Can’t you see we’re dead?
I said God put down your hand
We’re not listening
Oh, we never were”

how could I not? Anyway, enjoy the song and I hope you all enjoy your break and get to live a little!
