Maktub "You Can't Hide"

I started writing another We Used To Play This post about this song by Maktub, which we played quite a bit, a good decade ago.

These One-Hit type bands always beg the question, How did a band produce such a great sounding song, and then disappear.

And once again, I learned a little something I didn't know.

Maktub's lead singer is Reggie Watts.

How did I not put the voices together?

Watts is a multi-talented performer, with success both singing and acting.  He's a co-host on IFC's "Comedy Bang Bang," makes frequent appearances on Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon, and does the music for the FX show "Louie."

So he didn't disappear.  He just grew a great beard and went on TV.

Hear the song on Youtube.

Hear Watts' TED Talk on Youtube. (If you're confused at the beginning, stick with it!)
