A year ago I was searching for new music on iTunes, and it suggested "We Are Young" by Fun. Feat Janelle Monae. I loved the song, but had to google it, because I thought iTunes had a typo. The band couldn’t really be named Fun., could it?
Then my new favorite "unkown" band stopped by the station, and impressed me with their down to earth personalities, and their affinity for having fun and goofing around. I became an even bigger fan at that point (see me geeking out with them).
If you haven’t checked out the whole Some Nights album yet, shame on you. It rocks – my fave is "One Foot". It’s no surprise next weeks show is sold out (I bought my tix pre-sale), or that they’ve seen as much success as they have.
With 6 Grammy nods, I’m pulling for them to get at least one of them when the show airs tomorrow night (Sunday, 2/10 at 7pm on Channel 11). And as if they weren’t already the coolest band ever, they’ve stayed humble through it all, and aren’t concerning themselves with their nominations. They just want to "crush" their performance of "We Are Young" at the Grammy’s! I’m sure they will.
