2010 Singles: "Coquet Coquette"

I don't think this was a song of the day, and I remember Leland sent it to me for just that reason (without realizing that YRock plays the shit out of Of Montreal--it's how I first heard the band: Athens band, played in Philly, listened to online in Portland OR, makes total sense).

I did actually see them live this year. More disappointing than I'm willing to actually admit (the sound at the venue totally sucks, and their hyper-sexual antics would have been really risque back in 1994, but really Kevin, if you wanna blow the hot dancer in the jock strap, none of us are going to be scandalized, sorry... try again in Utah, it might work there).

That being said, they do put together some really interesting albums, with crazily elaborate songs (arrangements and lyrics). Something tells me listening to their music will help with your S.A.T. scores (it's now called "Critical Reading" and not "Verbal"). For example, "coquet" is a verb, and "coquette" is a noun. I believe the song translates to "flirty flirt" but then I do better at the math stuff.
"I don't want to catch you with some other guy's face under your eyelids
Something must be wrong, you give me emotional artifacts that can find no purchase"
