Sounded great and then the last minute they danced around like idiots. Why does the guitarist look like he's cumming everytime he plays a riff. Just an awkward group of people to watch.

Does anybody know which of their performances was actually on TV? "Some Nights" or "Carry On" (or both?). Their performance of Carry On was excellent...probably their best televised live performance yet. Some Nights wasn't bad, but the live performance seemed to be lacking the "punch" of the original. Either way, Louis C.K. + fun. = one of the best SNL's in recent memory.

Both performances were on tv.

I thought Carry On sounded good but Some Nights was kinda... meh. I was disappointed. And to be honest, I thought they looked bored playing both songs. I kinda feel bad cause that has to be a major wear on them having to play the singles over and over for publicity. Either way. Great bands. I agree with the trench coat comments too, he looks like a hobbit.

Good Lord those vocals. This song really shows how Nate can hit every note perfectly. Amazing band and amazing performance. Even though they are now so mainstream I can not be happier for them! Album of the year.

I disagree. I absolutely love Louis CK but thought he wasn't a great fit for SNL. Or they just didn't use him in the right way.

The Abe Lincoln short was great, though.

only song on Some Nights I like. i know, i know, it's really evil to express dissatisfaction with the record, but hey, I can only like what I like. for the most part the record sounds like kids music to me. shit to soundtrack live action disney films.

but more importantly Louis Ck is the funniest man alive. that monologue was the funniest 5 minutes of snl since Will Ferrell left.
Its now considered bad form to express dissatisfaction with a dissatisfying record on here? What?

These performances were pretty alright in spots, and pretty terrible in others. The amount of studio production needed to make these songs listenable on the album is pretty apparent because of these, though, which (to me) denotes some pretty lackluster song writing.

i'm just trying to throw up a protective shield against any potential fanboys. but yeah, seems to me (may be wrong, only listened to the album like 3-4 times) but the recipe for a new fun song is this:

1) write a lengthy paragraph about your past few days.
2) now pick 2-3 chords
3) pick out a single sentence from said paragraph that can be turned into a slogan for the chorus
4) sing lengthy paragraph over 2-3 chords fitting as many words into every line as possible
5) fill gaps between verses and chorus' with "Woah's"

YAY! Fun. is on the radio! Woo-hoo!

Well considering a lot of people think the songs sound better live, without the production, I don't think many would agree. The songs are fantastic live.
