I kept hearing this song here and there, and it became quite an earworm. So of course I had to figure it out on an instrument.

My initial plan was to work up an all-acoustic version, just me and the banjo. But then I found out it's a *really* hard song, and moreover mixing the syncopation of the vocals and backup would take hours of practice, and I probably wouldn't even sing it that good anyway. :-) So I figured I'd just post what I worked up as is.

In hindsight I would've altered my arrangement a bit for this setup (namely, mixing it up for the first verse, and catching the melody a bit more), but oh well.

This is, of course, not my song, so if you like it please buy the original on iTunes.
