Video of the Day #10: Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Maps

Maps by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is one of my all time favourite songs. Think yearning love song mixed with the ever great Karen O going ever so slightly overboard with the emotion.

Then I found (linked from Lightspeed Champion’s Myspace bulletin last week) this amazing take on it by five amazing people who have done it completely acapella, and it sounds ace. Granted, they haven’t quite got Karen O’s quavering voice, but everything sounds ace, even better considering how sparse it is.
