Even if you havent heard Best Day of My Life, youve heard it. With the jangly banjo and the owl hooting, its one of those songs that are perfectly tailored to nestle in your ear and birth worms that wont be able to get out for days. Its no wonder that the songs been featured in Hyundai commercials and the trailer forThe Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
In this episode of A Trolley Show, well-coiffed Brooklyn outfit American Authors perform their hit with the enthusiasm of a band in love with its music. Not that thats a bad thing—in fact, its a refreshing break from the quiet navel-gazing of most indie musicians. Its best to just give in to the ear worms, because the more you fight it, the longer they stay.
