Janelle Monae - Tightrope(Live on Letterman)
Label this under "Things Our City is Burning" slept on. It took repeated insistence from Pop Candy Arcade and a very good friend of mine to finally give Janelle Monae a chance, and they were right, I should have gone to see her at Schuba's, and I should have been listening to her for months. I was a hater for no real good reason, and I was dreadfully wrong. Her debut album "The ArchAndroid" is tremendous fun, skipping from genre to genre gleefully, and gracefully. This video is her performing the lead single from that album on the Letterman Show, and it is tremendous.
