YOU CAN PLAY ALONG with the 2nd video! If you'd like to play along with The Moldy Peaches live video in GCEA tuning, put your capo on the 1st fret. This is a two part song with the end of one verse overlapping the beginning of the next. I've indicated that using red and blue. When the two parts sing a verse together, it's in purple.
The Moldy Peaches were a New York indie group founded by Adam Green and Kimya Dawson. None of their albums sold more than 8,000 copies, and since 2004 Green and Dawson have been pursuing solo careers. Kimya Dawson said of this song in Rolling Stone magazine: "We wrote it during a period in our lives where Adam and I both wanted to find people to be totally crushed-out on. We called them hippies, and we'd walk the streets at all hours of the night looking for hippies. This song was what each of us would sing to our perfect person if we'd met them." This anti-folk anthem was featured on the Juno soundtrack album, which includes several other of Dawson's songs. It also prominently features at the end of the movie when it's sung by Michael Cera and Ellen Page. The version by the two Juno actors is also included on the soundtrack album. The Page and Cera version of the song was a minor chart success in the United States, reaching #91 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 2008.
