I've Been Remiss

It's been a rough year.

Sorry about that.

But I'm breaking my silence (better late than never) to present another in a series of perfect pop songs.

And if it's from the band that did "Closing Time" in the last millenium and hasn't put out a record in nearly 20 years, well that's just 2020 for ya.

Singing Credits

One of the oddball phrases you hear a lot is that someone is so great that you'd listen to them read the phone book.

Well, it used to be a phrase you'd hear a lot back before the internet when people had and used phone books. (Kids, ask your parents what this means.)

But Harry Nilsson really did have a voice that was so beautiful that it would be cool to hear him sing the phone book.

As far as I know he never did that (or at least never recorded it), but here's the next best thing: Nilsson sings the credits to the Otto Preminger movie Skidoo.

Let's Go For A Bounce On My Trampoline

Someone told me the other night that I look like John Sebastian.

I don't see it, but okay.

I Wonder What It Cost Me

I loved the original version of this by Robyn Hitchcock and never knew this version existed until the YouTube Rabbit Hole served it up for me just now.

Oddly appropriate since I haven't posted in forever and the last post was another Neko Case song.

No Ray of Sunlight's Ever Lost

Real life has interfered in a big way recently. Sorry for the lack of posts.

Meanwhile, enjoy Vance Joy.
