  1. I can’t believe you didn’t have more response to this. Though I don’t think it is enough to make a shy bald Buddhist reflect and plan a mass murder or anything.

  2. I think my favorite is “Suedehead” with “Every Day Is Like Sunday” “Interesting Drug” as close seconds. Of this last, he’s right: there are some bad, bad people on the Right.

    Of course, Hubby and I enjoy “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” as “our song” — especially now that there are double-decker tour buses in Washington. Terrible pointless video originally, though, so the clip is from a recent tour. (Also to show how he’s held up.)

    I married a couple in their home last year, and this was the first song they played after the service, over drinks. (Our mutual musical tastes came up during the first interview.)
