Watch: The La’s Perform “There She Goes” On David Letterman – 1991

Here’s an old favorite of mine by Liverpudlian group, The La’s . I was fortunate to have seen these guys play live twice — once at the Town & Country in London, England (early 1991) and again the following year at a festival in the Washington, DC area.  They’ve got a great sense of melody– singer Lee Mavers has a real Beatlesque feel to his songwriting — and they put on an excellent live show.  I was expecting huge things from them then, but they unfortunately disbanded sometime after their first album.

In 1999, Sixpence None The Richer covered ‘There She Goes’ which became that band’s second hit single.

I personally have always preferred The La’s original version.  Here they are live in 1991, making their American television debut on the David Letterman Show.  Enjoy!:
