I actually found myself sitting through the whole first song, and it wasn't unlistenable, so I'm going to listen to the other one. With very few exceptions I skip the musical act as well, or give the track at most a minute to grab me, because it's some flavor-of-the-month band that turns out to be a one hit wonder (and there have certainly been a number of those over the years--anyone remember The Fixx from the '80s? They appeared on SNL--once--to sing their one hit "One Thing Leads to Another").
The Vintage repeat (with Derek Jeter of "Derek Jeter's Taco Hole") from 2001 had Shakira as its musical act--now that I can get behind--catchy song, and that woman could work it.
Of course the main reason I tuned in last night was Louis CK's appearance as host. Some really bizarre stuff last night. Loved the birthday clown sketch most of all, but definitely could have done without the sectional sofas bit.
