I guess? Maybe?

Kind of a dud question to end this with.

Jeb called me last week to let me know that, musically, he had my number.

"You're a Rickenbacker guy," he said. I knew exactly what he meant and it's totally true. I like Beatles-y melodies. You may have noticed. I like jangly guitars and bright production. I want music to yank my head around in unexpected directions. I'll have the dissonance, if you please. Odd chord voicings, and don't bother to sand down their sharp, jagged corners, thank you.

Lyrics. People, people, honestly. Have some pride in your work.

So yeah, Freedy. Another under-rated hero of mine. I discovered him late in the game, after he'd already released five albums. Dan turned me onto Freedy, but I never heard this song while we were together. Turns out that Dan always skipped it when he played the album. Not out of malice. He just didn't like the song. I had to wait until I was a truck driver to discover it. I clearly remember figuring out the lyrics and wailing along with them through New Mexico. It enjoyed a big revival in my life last year.



Runner-Up: Oh, jeez. Um. Okay, a twofer. This Tornado Loves You, and Middle Cyclone, Neko Case





Now that this meme is over, I hope you will excuse me. It's been cutting into my porn time, and I really must catch up now.
