It's happened again. We played a song on our show that clearly reminds me of another tune. But this time the stakes are higher. If you're the first person to guess the song that I'm thinking of, I'll invite you to a live Tiny Desk Concert taping and I'll buy you lunch. It's a safe bet for me, because I don't think anybody will get it.

So here's the top of the tune called "Generals" by the Mynabirds from this week's show.
