Lemme tell you something … and I want you to listen to me … are we clear?

He made out with every girl in the world.

And he ain’t that tall.

Plus, he has 400 houses, 400 mouses and 400 houses.

I hate to admit this, but I was slow to come around to My Morning Jacket.

MMJ was barely on my radar before Bonnaroo 2011 (my first Roo), but from the opening few minutes of “Victory Dance,” I was hooked. The show started just as the sun was setting and the crowd was buzzing. I was waiting in a line to get in the pit for the Arcade Fire show (which lived up to my expectations x1000), so I was just off to the side for MMJ.

And they blew me away. Jim James crushed it with his fur boots and black cape.

There are a few good videos of the show from Bonnaroo, but this one from a show at KCRW is one of the best I’ve found of MMJ. They play the entire Circuital album, which kicks off with, of course, Victory Dance.

Victory.

If ever there was a music to go with slow-motion videos that recreate photos taken from the ’50s, Explosions in the Sky is it.

Then again, EITS makes just about everything better.
