The Song in My Head

Saturday, March 11, 2006
Today's posts here on BOTB appear to be taking on a distinctly boomerangish tint--sent flying into the air once in the past, they are whizzing back to us like that famed weapon of the aboriginal-Australians.

The Giant Things are back, and now--DUCK!--here comes The Song in My Head.

The song in my head today is
Television Light
by Marshall Crenshaw
from his album 447

This song rolls liltingly and melodically along propelled by fuzz rhythm guitar and a great fiddle riff. Marshall C. is one of our most underrated songwriters and guitarists. This song is about remorse over causing hurt to a lover--something we can all relate to--but it's an implicitly upbeat tune.

Special thanks to our music buddy, Jeff Stoodt, for sharing "447" with us.
