Self, “What a Fool Believes”

For his 2000 album Gizmodgery, Self (aka musician Matt Mahaffey) decided they’d only use toy instruments. So, he pulled out the Fisher Price Star Guitar and other fun instruments and went to work. The highlight of the record is a cover of the Doobie Brothers hit “What A Fool Believes.” I personally think the use of toy instruments improves on the over-seriousness of the original.
