Last Night I Dreamed Marcus Bachmann Loved Me

(h/t Clark)

Notice how he says "we" in his section.

Also it's fun that Michele isn't the craziest bitch in this montage!

Song of the Day: "Split for the Coast"

Debut single from a Brooklyn-based trio--it has all the hallmarks of classic, vaguely-retro indie power pop. Have I covered every possible musical bon mot I work into these things? I think I have.

Doing the Newt-ron Dance

I'm so happy the smart one is still in the race! She is a bitch!!!

Song of the Day: "Jealousy"

The Fabulous Clinton calls this his favorite track from 2011--Will Young is one of those dude's I confuse with other dudes, but then that's like the hysterical theme of this blog, right? He's NOT this guy or the guy from that band, but was he runner up for something? Like X Factor?


Was he in Take That?

See how much fun I am in the mornings?

Song of the Day: "Barton Hollow"

I'm a little late on this one from The Civil Wars, but their recent Grammy nominations bring them to my attention (Best Folk Album and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for this track). So here you go...

Two Things That Made Me Laugh

I'm not sure why Charles Barkley was hosting SNL last weekend, but he was great (perhaps that's why, but it hasn't been a requirement in the past)...

And this still has me howling...

Song of the Day: "Make My"

The Roots from undun--that's kind of all I've got this morning. I've got to be a grown up on a business call in a few minutes. So there you go.

Song of the Day: “Doughnut for a Snowman”

So far this has been a crap year for me from a blog content creation perspective. And today is no different. So here's another new track from Guided by Voices.

Song of the Day: "Rainbird"

It would seem Glenn Close is not the only actor in the hunt for an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song, as Oscar winner Mary Steenburgen provides the lyrics to this Oscar-eligible song from ??? (let's say Dirty Girl and I'll edit later [possibly Dirrty Girl]).

Song: "Rainbird"
Artist: Melissa Manchester

Song of the Day: "Can't Keep Johnny Down"

Gotta go visit with family and enjoy the sunny drive on I-95, so I'll make this quick. They Might be Giants are still recording, and will probably get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before Heart.
