Mayer Hawthorne covers E.L.O.

Only yesterday, I wanted to post this video of Mayer Hawthorne singing a cover of M.I.A.’s Paper Planes. For reasons beyond my comprehension, the Guardian does not allow embedding the video.

Instead you get Mr. Blue Sky as covered by Mr. Hawthorne. You might remember Electric Light Orchestra‘s original version from its prominent return in Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
