Watch the Eels’ Live Video for ‘I Like Birds’
Set in the famed Royal Albert Hall in London, the clip brings viewers to the center of the action with frontman Mark Oliver “E” Everett. The old school rock and roll tune starts off with drums setting the rhythm followed by bass then guitars, constantly building as the song progresses. "I can't look at the rocket launch / The trophy wives of the astronauts / And I won't listen to their words / 'Cause i like / Birds," Everett sings in the first verse. You can watch the entire performance in the video above.
"I Like Birds" is the fourth track on the Eels' third studio album, Daisies of the Galaxy. Produced by E, the disc was released on the DreamWorks record label on March 14, 2000.
The documentary, entitled EELS -- Royal Albert Hall, chronicles the epic concert where the band took the crowd on an Eels historical journey with a 28-song set on June 30, 2014. The live album and Charlie Lightening-directed doc will hit the streets on April 14 -- you can pre-order your copy on the Eels' website.
