The Late Movies: Feist's "The Reminder"

Chris Higgins

Musician Leslie Feist released the album The Reminder in 2007. I was recently reminded that it's still awesome, so tonight, here are live versions of all its songs, in album order. Enjoy!

1. So Sorry

Live in Quebec City. Some French banter and audience participation starts it off.

2. I Feel It All

With a backing band of five very quiet gentlemen. If you watch one video from this set, let it be this one.

3. My Moon My Man

On Later... with Jools Holland.

4. The Park

In black and white, live in Texas.

5. The Water

1, 2, 3, 2, 2, 3.

6. Sealion

Again from Later... with Jools Holland.

7. Past in Present

Live in Toronto. See also, this wonderful duet with Kevin Drew including "Past in Present" and several others.

8. The Limit to Your Love

Live in Denver.

9. 1234

On Sesame Street:

On The Late Show with David Letterman, featuring a choir made up of members of Broken Social Scene, The National, and Grizzly Bear. 100% brilliant.

10. Brandy Alexander

Live in Vancouver. The beginning's cut off, but this was the best version I could find on YouTube.

11. Intuition

Not often performed live (as the crowd often talks over it), this version features Feist saying "This is a Guns 'n Roses cover, by the way" mid-way through. Some nice call-and-response with the audience around the 4-minute mark.

12. Honey Honey

Live in San Francisco, supposedly in 2005 (!?).

13. How My Heart Behaves

Live in Asheville, 2008. Not the best video, but the audio is good.
