I was going to say that - because I currently have the promotional video as my Music Video Of the Week on my blog! It's a song raging against stupidity, generally. They were a great band, and they lasted until 2009. "Flagpole Sitta" was the single from their 1997 debut album.

Yeah I get that now. I think the song can be kind of funny but in a rather juvenile sort of way and I just don't like it, not my thing. I was 28 the year the song was released so I'm not that much older than the band members were. But it's not something I can relate to, I just see the word differently than that.

Tom's Diner by Suzanne Vega.

Just a bunch of disjointed observations by some woman in a diner/café. One of the most boring and pointless songs ever.

I Beg Your Pardon by Kon Kan.

I'd actually forgotten about this song. But for some reason it popped into my head today though I haven't heard it in years. Kon Kan was a synthpop Canadian duo and also a "one hit wonder" (here in America anyways) with this song, if I remember it was released in 89 or 90. I remember that the two guys in the band said it was an "answer song" to Lynn Anderson's early 70s country hit I Never Promised You A Rose Garden. And while "I beg your pardon" is actually some of the lyrics to Anderson's song they're never mentioned in this one. At the time it was released originally I liked it but I found it on YouTube earlier today and listened to it again. And honestly I'd have to say that I think I Beg Your Pardon definitely sounds dated to me today, it has a very "80s" sound to it and I don't like it as much as I did when I was younger although I still love lots of 80s songs. The song also samples some of Anderson's vocals from I Never Promised You A Rose Garden (with a weird echo effect added in), along with several other samples from other songs. Later the year it was released Lynn Anderson sued the band and their record company when she found out about her voice being sampled because they hadn't gotten her permission first before they did it. I believe she won her lawsuit but I don't know if any other artist sued them for sampling their work or whatever happened to the band since then. Still it's an all right song.

"Tighter, Tighter" - Alive And Kicking

You know I got to show you
Nobody else before you
Ever gave me such
A beautiful feeling

Oh, woman, you
Touched a-my soul now
Honey, don't you let go now
Hold on, baby
Just a little bit tighter

Hold on, just a little bit tighter now, baby
I love you so much and
I can't let go, no, no, no
Hold on, a just a little bit
Tighter now, baby

Love is so surprising
Opened up my eyes and
You reached out and
Took my hand

Baby, you touched a-my soul now
Woman, don't let go now
Hold on, baby
Just a little bit tighter

Hold on, just a little bit tighter now, baby
I love you so much and
I can't let go, no, no, no
Hold on, a just a little bit
Tighter now, baby

Oh, woman, you
Touched a-my soul now
Honey, don't you let go now
Hold on, baby
Just a little bit tighter

"Redbone" by Childish Gambino (the musical stage name used by actor Donald Glover).

You may also know it as "Stay Woke"; those two words actually do appear in this song's lyrics. And actually, it has nothing whatsoever to do with the band also named Redbone.

I Dream An Old Lover by Jeffrey Foucault. He's a singer I've just discovered in the last few days. Actor Drew Powell mentioned him in a tweet on his Twitter page and I thought I'd check him out, and I'm finding I like some of his stuff. He's only in his early 40s but he's got such a time-worn and world weary sound to his singing. His style is a mix of folk, rock, country and some blues too. And his lyrics are all at once simple but complex. Some good stuff.

Affirmation by Savage Garden. It was the title track from the Australian pop duo's second (and final) album before they disbanded.

True Faith by New Order. I have no idea what the song is about really, but I think the lyrics could be interpreted in several different ways.
