Video: John Darnielle, The Sign

This is John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats doing an acoustic cover of the Ace of Base song The Sign. It is absolutely glorious and having watched this I now love him three times as much as I did before, for both his ongoing personal awesomeness and for his abiding love for Ace of Base.

I also learned that the lyric is “love is demanding / without understanding” and not “love is demanding / rhythm to understanding” which means I have been singing the wrong thing all of these years. Whoops!
