I love it when this happens……….

I have to be at work at 7:00 tomorrow morning and I can’t stop thinking about the new Okkervil River release. Are they cool or am I listening to this year’s version of Missing Persons? I guess I really don’t care, but I do miss knowing. For the record there was a time I knew. There is little better than having a really big crush on a new song.

 
Anyway, Pop Lie is one of the greatest songs I’ve ever heard (for the rest of tonight at least). I could listen to it a couple million more times. I’d encourage you to do the same.
 
May I direct you to one of the most well written pieces I’ve ever seen about the feeling of having that song that connects with you. If you’ve never seen Pete and Pete you need to get with the program. It was one of the greatest shows ever (other than Eerie Indiana of course). I must be frank with you and admit that this episode makes me cry every time. I don’t guarantee the tears but this is an amazing show. This episode has cameos by Syd Straw as the teacher and Marshall Crenshaw as the meter reader. Indulge me and watch it. I think it’s time for me and the kids to get out the Pete and Pete DVDs and get busy.

 
Get to bed. You need to go to work tomorrow.

    hey, it’s good! I’ll listen again when I have headphones handy and hear more of it! Good recommendation on the song, and now I’ll have to watch this video too.
