Track of the Day: 'Flamingos'

Past TracksOn "Flamingos," a pop-rock tune from the British band Evryone, frontman Tom Andrews croons in a vampy, nasal tone that's reminiscent of two other singers: Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and Donald Fagen from Steely Dan. "Flamingos" has something of Maroon 5's eagerness to please--check out that jaunty, over-sized "oh whoa oh" chorus, which begs to be sung along with. But the song also has some of Steely Dan's wry cynicism, a sense that the narrator's standing just slightly apart from the niceties and conventions most people observe. "It bugs me that I don't know why and don't know how to play this game," Andrews admits. "Don't waste your time hanging out in the good old days."
