The moon stood up on the ridge
Looking down where the water shines
And a man looking over the bridge
Like he’s done so many times
I took my iPod with me to the oral surgeon today but I was in and out of there so fast I never got a chance to listen to it. So here’s what would have been a soundtrack for an extraction.
Tunnel Of Love – Dire Straits
Round – Sunny Day Real Estate
Float On – Modest Mouse
Thirteen – Big Star
Red Eyed Troll – The Muffs
Division Day – We Are Telephone (Elliott Smith cover)
Salka – Sigur Rós
You Are Not Glass – Julian Coryell
Miniature Sun – XTC
Of You – Cool For August
…and number 11 for poor departed number 19: You’re With Stupid Now – Aimee Mann
Go here to listen to Julian Coryell’s You Are Not Glass. It sounds like a collaboration between early-era Paul Simon and Elliott Smith. Coryells CD’s are real hit and miss, but are worth it for those times when he nails it.
And now, for something completely different, here’s some Kim Shattuck because she’s adorable.
(Added): Speaking of music, I would be remiss if I didn’t, once again, thank John McI in DC for the copy of A Deeper Blue: The Life and Music of Townes Van Zandt
