Five Songs, 11/18/2019


This is almost the full Five Songs experience today, we're just missing some incomprehensible metal.

Edna's Goldfish, "World Over"

Ahh, 1998. With The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at the peak of their popularity, with "The Impression That I Get" as a pretty big hit, it's not a surprise that there were lots of followers who got record contracts in their wake. And so, Edna's Goldfish. Difficult not to picture my old Civic when I listen to this.

Conlon Nancarrow, "Study #41b"

I mean, what is there to say about "Study #41b" that hasn't already been said, am I right? Anyway, the acceleration through the middle of this song ("song"?) is pretty fun, even beyond the usual Nancarrow entertaining bits like the hyper-rapid glissandos.

Skunks, "80 Seconds of Ska"

To answer your first question, this song is actually 101 seconds long. To answer your second question: yes, I had the same car when this came out. NO MORE QUESTIONS

Crudbump, "I Don't Do Shit"

Shout out to sitting on your couch listening to random songs! Does this count as doin' shit? I'm not sure, honestly. It's barely doing shit.

Badly Drawn Boy, "Disillusion"

This song sounds very 70s, but in a good way. I suppose it makes some sense, as there's definitely some kinship between Damon Gough and the big singer/songwriters of that decade, a connection that I suppose I hadn't really made explicitly in my brain before now.
