The Lips turn the upbeat New Wave single into an introspective, psychedelic freak out. Mark Mothersbaugh's yelps are replaced by Wayne Coyne's plaintive croon, while scratchy guitar riffing and a hypnotic drum beat oust the propulsive pop of the original Freedom of Choice track.
Had the Lips included it on their excellent but sonically repetitive album The Terror, it would have been an easy standout. Regardless, it's an awesome listen and a nice tribute (whether intentionally or not) to recently-deceased Devo drummer Alan Myers.
Watch it above and ask yourself why more bands don't tackle non-"Whip It" songs from Devo's under-appreciated catalog.
