Catamount Community Radio - November 15, 2009

"Coffee Time..."

Well, another week, another show, and not a bad one, in all modesty. Last Sunday, chllin' after the show, listening to the radio via the internet, I heard a song on Harry Shearer's Le Show that caught my fancy. I quickly jotted down a few of the lyrics, and then typed them into the Google search engine, and found out the tune was Jill Sobule's "League of Failures."

I've been a miner for a heart of gold,
A dreamer who just won't wake up.
I thought I'd plunge into the deepest vein,
It wasn't deep enough.


Still have your picture on my wall of faith,
Next to the grocery list.
I keep forgetting I should take you down,
I'm gonna take you down.

Speaking of lyrics, how about these lines from Rufus Wainwright?

I tried to dance Brittany Spears
I guess I'm getting on in years.

Or maybe these, from Franz Nicolay:

I was 26; she was 17
Too angry for lovers
and too close for friends
If you can't love me, baby
maybe we can just pretend.

(Here, my mind, during the pause after "if you can't love me, baby," inserted, "maybe your sister can." Bad Mark.)

This bit reminded me of Springsteen:

When we met I was broke
now I got a pile of tens
And baby, let's go out tonight
and see how fast I can spend.
