Billie Joe Armstrong & Norah Jones "Long Time Gone"

I can't quite land on a feeling about this song.

If we play it on mvyradio, will folks tune in and go "What the hell is this oldies stuff?"

Or will it just feel similar to a She & Him track---it sounds retro, but is clearly modern enough to fit in the MVY playlist?

I will say, I respect the fact that both these artists, in their respective careers, have refused to be defined by the genres that made them famous, and are willing to go down paths that that traditional fans might find uncool/uninteresting.

So that does tip the "friendly feeling" scales for me.

But feeling good about the artists doesn't answer the original concern . . . what will it sound like to flip the dial to MVY and hear this?  Good or bad?

Hear the song on Youtube.
