Song of the Day: The Dandy Warhols - You Were the Last High

I noted in my Brian Jonestown Massacre post that Dig! is a fantastic documentary, but I didn't even mention that The Dandy Warhols are a big part of the reason why.  Sure, Anton of BJM has some of the best scenes, and the Dandies come off a bit pretentious, but the dichotomy between the two bands makes for a really interesting story.

I'm not a huge Dandy Warhols fan, but I do think Welcome to the Monkeyhouse is one of the better records of the 2000s (not good enough to make my top 21 list, however).  I especially don't understand why today's song of the day wasn't a bigger hit - catchy chorus, trippy sound effects, breathy's just a great song.
