3AM Eternal: The Polyphonic Spree, “Town Meeting Song” (2008)

One of the nice things about The Polyphonic Spree is their ability to reinterpret and add their own zest of life into the works of others. Their larger-than-life psychedelic choral pop sound is matched only by their over-the-top live performances, led by ringmaster and musical wizard Tim DeLaughter. It’s no surprise, then, that they took part in a tribute to Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas, as they seem the only band capable of handling the glam-rock trippiness of “Town Meeting Song.” This is a fun, not-so-little track, and will beg repeat listens to fully digest the complexities of their version.
