    My Friday 'Song of the Day'.

    With the upcoming Pavement show in September, I've been putting their cds in my regular rotation, along with Arcade Fire (show is tonight) and Spoon, who are opening for A.F.

    Anyway, the eponymous Slanted and Enchanted was playing while I did my elliptical workout, and I'm sure they're going to play 'In the Mouth a Desert' when I see them. It's one of several great tunes on this debut record, and I can't hear it enough.

    Can you treat it like an oil well
    When it's underground, out of sight?
    And if the site is just a whore-sign
    Can it make enough sense to me?

    Pretend the table is a trust-knot
    We'll put our labels down, favors down
    I'll watch a yarn of twine unravel
    And you'll never get it back

    It's what I want (it's what I want)
    It's what I want (twine comes down)
    It's what I want (it's what I want)
    Don't you know
    I could make a try
    Make it dry
    Make it dry
    Make it dry

    I've been crowned the King of it
    And It is all we have, so wait
    To hear my words
    And they're diamond-sharp
    I could open it up
    And it's up and down
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    nice. enjoy those concerts. I know you will. I would like to catch AF & Spoon in Atlanta, but it's such a daunting task to plan right now.

    My Friday "Song of the Day" is Promised Land by Chuck Berry. It's the type of song that makes you want to get the hell out of the office when it's stuck in yer head.

    Way Of The World, the lead-off track to the tragically overlooked Dear Reader album from '09, Replace Why With Funny.

    LOL, I'm going to see a free Peter Frampton show at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park on Monday night.

    I'm so envious of all of you that can just hop in a cab and see such great bands! Those sound like great shows.

    Even your Peter Frampton concert, Hyfi! He hasn't aged well, but I'd still love to hear him live. That song was magic when it was first released.
