So that is her name. I thought Rilo was a bit unusual.

Truth is I heard the song on my truck radio for a couple of months and then typed into the 'puter so my wife could hear it.

Here's one for Donald Trump...

Wilco's Ashes of American Flags:

I love this song! Such a tasty solo from Nels Cline, why he's one of my favorite guitarists.

I like a lot of Rilo Kelly. My spousal unit is a big Jenny Lewis fan. I think she likes her hip, country girl aesthetic as much as the music.

I like a lot of cuts on her first solo album, Rabbit Fur Coat. You should check that out. It has a more traditional country feel to it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYMV7TlVm9A

Material on her subsequent solo albums is kind of hit or miss, I think, but I probably haven't given it much of a chance.

I do, but I'm not a huge fan. I have the Retrospective album. A friend just told me they're coming through in March, so we'll probably go, mostly because it's on a Friday. Getting too old to go to concerts on weeknights.

Yes. Someone just cobbled this together as a joke.

I'm not a huge Springsteen fan or a fan of covers in general, but this one is particularly awful and pointless.

Yes, Springsteen wrote Blinded by the Light, but Manfred Man and his Earth Band made it famous.

Hah. Spacehog. A true one-hit wonder. I forgot about them. I pictured a bunch of pseudo-hippies, but that guy looks like Klaus Kinski.

Searched the song.
Heard some.

Clicked another entry.
Saw animated version with animals.

Another click.
Actual band.

And crowd/audience person with homemade skillet fastened to her head.

Quite educational.
Thanks.

Not listening to any song as such, but rather the music for the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Don't care that much for the films otherwise (apart from the first one) but the music is some of the best I've ever heard anywhere.
