Has anybody heard the Vampire Weekend song "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa"? - you can hear it 'performed' here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KLjD7CjLn4
If you can make it to the chorus it goes like this: "It feels so unnatural - and Peter Gabriel too".
I think it might be aimed at the daughters of all the ladies on this site going by the lyrics . . .
If there's a deeper explanation I'd love to hear it!
Even weirder than "Peter Gabriel Song' by The Serotonins (which is actually quite pleasant )

hmmm. such clean cut boys! reminds me of the early sixties, before the summer of love.
i will have to give it another listen though,
to comment beyond.
Thanks for the post!
Have not heard of Vampire Weekend.
Vampire Weekend is an indie rock band from New York City signed to XL Recordings. They came to public attention via a variety of blogs, first on the African music audioblog "Benn loxo du taccu" and then six months later on Stereogum, leading many to cite them as another example of the "blog band" phenomenon. The band is influenced by both African popular music and Western Classical Music. They describe their genre of music as "Upper West Side Soweto", performing such songs as "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa," which references Congolese soukous music. This song was #67 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007. The band made a television appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman on February 1, 2008.
The members of the band - Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Tomson, and Chris Baio - met while attending Columbia University.
