"When this video started, I thought, 'this has the potential to be a disaster,'" Fun. singer Nate Ruess says of the Nashville/Los Angeles country-pop duo's version of "Some Nights." (They call themselves "a modern Thelma and Louise with Sex and the City style," if you're wondering what's up with those fancy dresses they're wearing.) "It's one of the less slick-looking ones, and I've often seen that mean the performance won't be very good. But I was really, really into their vibe. It's all just fiddle, percussion and them singing. And I especially liked the way they would trade off and look at each other when the other one was singing. I never thought about that song having a country arrangement to it, but I think it's so freakin' cool and I thought they sang it really well, too."
