Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: “Some Nights” (Official Version)

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

“Some Nights” is a song this writer first heard on the radio at the pool. Asking the lifeguards what the name of it was, after hearing it several times, they said "What Do I Stand For?" An internet search revealed the latter to be the unofficial subtitle of a sleeper hit by an American indie pop trio by the name of fun. Released this past June, it spent seven months on the Billboard Hot 100 before peaking at number three this week. It has met with critical acclaim in various countries around the world.

And more, as we will learn this time next week. Stay tuned ...

(CONTENT ADVISORY: Fleeting and rather unnecessary expletive at 3:52.)
