I like “The Less I Know The Better” a lot. It’s got a great video. It’s got great disco vibes. I feel like there’s been a bit of a swing back against Tame Impala because they have an association with a stereotype of a certain kind of shitty man. I think that’s fair because that indie, mansplaining man-child exists, but at the same time it’s a weird endorsement. It’s an acknowledgement that Tame Impala are good.
So where does that leave us? Well, I guess making a Tame Impala song my song of the day is not like I’m recommending something that nobody knows and that’s valid on my list. I don’t think “The Less I Know The Better” is taken for granted or forgotten about so I don’t really have an angle to it on that level. The reason “The Less I Know The Better” is my song of the day is because I like singing and Shóna doesn’t but she’ll very occasionally perform a high pitched re-enactment of the first verse, replacing all the words with “La”. And I always find it very funny.
