Neat! Lookit all the twos!

The Supremes, "Baby Love"

I don't usually have a ton to say about these iconic Motown hits, based on my assumption that people have all heard them a thousand times and are intimately familiar with them. But I'm not sure how true that is, as I reflect on it. Did the generation after me have oldies stations on in cars, restaurants, and other public places as they grew up? I'm not sure, and it's possible this stuff is more novel. Well, anyway, enjoy!

Doreen's Jazz New Orleans, "Bill Bailey"

We picked up this album when my daughter started learning the clarinet, to give her some music featuring clarinet in the house. She never really cared about it much, though.

Car Bomb, "Fade Out"

At some point, I ended up with a "Car Bomb" Negativland bumper sticker, and I was too chicken to ever actually put it on my car, and I will always regret that. I also never found a place to put my "No Other Possibility" bumper sticker, because I didn't want to waste it, so I never stuck it on to anything. I'm very dumb!

Slapstick, "My Way"

Ska-punk, when ripped off at a fast pace and without pretension, is just fun. Everybody making fun of this stuff still should probably pick something new and fresh for their jokes, like making fun of airplane food or "parkway" jokes.

Big Ups, "Capitalized"

The guitar bit at :48 sounds like something from Slint's Spiderland played at double speed.
