"When my two friends married they chose a song that says 'since I met you, I found a world so new.' When they got the actual lyrics it said 'since I left you, I found a world so new!' They still kept it though."
- some random
While the Avalanches' title track might differ dramatically from the Main Attractions' original intent, and anyone that chooses a wedding song titled "Since I Left You" from the album Since I Left You deserves altar abandonment/VD, you can hardly blame them for choosing such an otherwise perfect song.
The Avalanches - Since I Left You
The source material is pretty strong, too. Breaking down Avalanches songs is similar to watching the Daft Punk sample video except you don't feel so dirty/used after. Aside from the two main inspirations below, the opening track also embodies portions of Jimmy Webb's "By the Time I Get To Phoenix" and Car Wash.
The Main Attractions - Everyday (sampled in "Since I Left You")
Klaus Wunderlich - Do the Latin Hustle (sampled in "Since I Left You")
"Latin Hustle" is also great for scooping cougars on the frozen tundra of Trader J's - evidently you just play it, walk over, and say something awesome. Expect nothing less from a man named Klaus Wunderlich.
