Ben Gibbard, The Strokes, Creeper Lagoon

I was listening to music on shuffle yesterday and this track from The Strokes came up, “You Only Live Once”. It reminded me of an old San Francisco favorite from the 90’s, Creeper Lagoon. The vocals, at times, seem pretty similar. I’m not saying the songs/artist are alike, copies, blah blah blah, but in some twisted way the vocals remind me of each other. Am I alone on this?

The Strokes – “You Only Live Once” (2006)

Creeper Lagoon – “Wrecking Ball” (2001)

Creeper Lagoon – “Wonderful Love” (1998, unofficial fan made video)

And for those who didn’t know, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard covered the above Creeper Lagoon song, Wonderful Love, in San Francisco in 2007.
