AOL: Why did you choose to recreate 'The Blues Brothers' for your 'Thinkin' 'Bout Somethin'' video?
Taylor: We had a record that was reminiscent of a lot of soul music -- we had Jerry Hey, who put together a lot of the horn arrangements for classic records, and Bob Babbitt, who played bass on Motown records. So, we were trying come up with a way to sort of invite people into this world that the record is. We've always been geeks about the Blues Brothers movie. We grew up listening to classic records and that movie was slapstick humor mixed with the music we were into, so we grew up loving that film. Going around the internet and searching for different ideas, we had that clip from the Blues Brothers with Ray Charles bookmarked. I happened to play 'Thinkin' 'Bout Somethin'' at the same time as the video was playing and went, "Oh my god -- this scene looks like it's embodying the song." It almost locked in perfectly with the timing. The Ray Charles scene is, to us, everything we wanted to say at the start of the record process. It doesn't embody everything, but the idea of a credible reference to great music, the kind of freedom and abandon of tons of people of every shape and size dancing in the street. It seemed like there couldn't be anything better than to try and create that, so we dove in headfirst. On the detail side, we ended up going all the way, literally matching things that were on the walls in the room in the music store. Having Al Yankovic, who's a friend and genius, appear as our tambourine player was the incredible icing on the cake, because it's an unmistakable performance. You want to go back and watch it because you kind of can't believe it's actually him. It was the combination of elements that made it a great idea, but we didn't know if people would receive it as well as they have.
