Crazy What You Could've Had
This came on iTunes the other day. Hadn't heard it in years. So powerful. And Michael Stipe's favorite? I think he's stated so in the past.
I think something like this every other day, particularly the “wear me out” part:
You come to me with positionsYou come to me with excuses
Ducked out in a row
You wear me out
You wear me out
Not to mention:
Crazy what you could've had
I think this on a maddening loop.
Song of the Day: By Strauss
Are these some of the best rhymes ever? Beats glove/love, charms/arms. Ira Gershwin had the mad rhymes, yo.
How can I be civil
When hearing this drivel
It's only for nightclubbing sousses
Oh give me the free-and-easy
waltz that is the Viennese
And go tell the band if they want a hand
The waltz must be Strauss'!
“Free and easy” and “Viennese.” Fuckin' a.
It helps when it's sung by Georges Guétary. I should check out more of his stuff. I'm a Gene Kelly fan but I never did get Leslie Caron throwing over Georges for Gene. I still climb stairs sometimes as he does in “Stairway to Paradise.”
Song of the Day: 'Runaway' by The National
I've been on a The National kick lately. It's nice to be on a kick:
“We don't bleed/ When we don't fight” should be required hearing in Congress. And at GOP conventions. And maybe on the Op-Ed pages of The Wall Street Journal and The Economist.
Song of the Day: Bloodbuzz Ohio
I've been listening to this song a lot this year:
“I still owe money to the money/ To the money I owe” should be our national anthem.
Music suggestions welcome.
Song of the Day: 'Plain Speak' by Joe Henry
A blind man looks out from your eyes ...
New album is out in spring.
