The Flying People - "FU = (Heart)U"

FU = (Heart)U

First in a presumably occasional series of posts here about my friends' music.

The Flying People were (are?) a project of Philly bedroom genius Michael Bonfiglio. I only know of his music -- and his amazing comics and other art -- because his bedroom used to be next to mine a few years/apartments ago.

This song is brilliant little construction, from the drum programming to the Zombies/Kinks/Elephant6 harmony bursts. And of course the lyrics rule. They rule all the way through, but I'll highlight just the line I've been quoting for years: "If you love somebody let them go / well I don't think so / 'cause that's called not loving someone, you asshole."
