[Vintage Videos] The Flaming Lips: "She Don’t Use Jelly" (Live on Letterman, 1995)

I think the best part about this video, besides how undeniably great this song is, is the fact that (a very young looking) Wayne is smiling like a doughy-eyed Cheshire cat the entire time. Just four years later these boys would put out a landmark album for the band (and the turning point in their sound and aesthetic), The Soft Bulletin, followed of course by Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots in 2002.

So so funny, how this guy cannot carry a note for twenty years, and still be that amazing.

His smile is a sort of 'hey mom, no more drugs in the hood and playing in the garage – we are an American band now!'

I love how even though this song had people saying ‘one-hit wonder’ at the time, they still play it at every show fifteen years later, and have an awesome time doing it.
