Song of the Day: "Waltzing Matilda"

As a super influential blogger I routinely hear from writers, directors, musicians, designers and heads of state--anyone who can benefit from the halo effect that a flattering mention in the Rebel Agenda brings. It's the Rebel Agenda Colbert Bump... or something.

So I didn't think twice when I got an email about this adorable video for a great song. I was 2/3 of the way through before I realized that the email came from the singer/songwriter herself. Or a reasonable facsimile. Actually I'm willing to bet (a relatively small amount) that Hilary had a lot to do with the email since it never once mentions her record label.

Normally I don't stop and listen to every song I get an email about but this one caught my attention. The magic words:
It's a tongue-in-cheek, comic book inspired, detective film noir short!
I'm not sure it would have gotten my attention as immediately without that sentence.

And I'm really glad it got my attention. I've listened to this song at least 7 times in a row. Now it's your turn. Enjoy...
