Music from Our Tube, but not suited for my 9yo daughter

Don’t know where she got it from, but these last few weeks my daughter regularly chants “danger danger” to which I started replying “high voltage”.  We both laugh each time, fun times!

While perusing related video’s I came across this heart-warming quirky live in-the-barn version of “Gate Keeper” from back in 2012 and in that same barn Lianne La Havas covered Little Dragon’s ‘Twice’ accompanied by nothing but a truly superb bass. Who knew barns could be so cool? ;-)
