I put their names in Ask Jeeves. Then I did the Hamster Dance.

I'm not familiar with this artist. I saw some pictures of him and thought he looked kind of like Buddy Holly. Does his music have that same '50's happy pop feel to it? I hope so.

"Watch Your Step" is another great song from Trust. That whole album is pretty great. Up there with his best stuff, as far as I'm concerned.

I once wanted to start a blog called New Weds and Nearly Deads just cuz I liked the sound of it so much.

Every night
Go out full of carnival desires
And end up in the closing time choirs

One of my favorite lyrics.

Elvis's Rhino reissues were probably the best reissues in the history of popular music. Those bonus discs were out of this world .

I think part of the reason I'm so cynical about reissues is because they all suck compared to EC's Rhinos.

"Hey here's some shitty blues jam we recorded while Stone was at the dentist!"

"Hey here's thirty songs that didn't make Get Happy, hope you like em!"

These lyrics.

They pulled the stars down one by one
Hauled up the moon to shine upon
A velvet curtain rising
Now her puppet has cut his strings

The footlights glare, the trumpets blare
Why is your face drawn on so glum, old chum?
Paintbrush dragging on a drum
The rimshot on the punchline that you fumbled

The crowd went home and left you
for dead, my old woodenhead
Took the thimble and the thread
Choked back tears like a cymbal

The breath is slow and shallow too
The sky is bright Venetian blue
The cardboard sun is all ablaze
The air is painted Clifford Brown

Caressing yesterdays
The steady gaze of your glass eye
Head in a basket smiling still
Free of will, free of wisdom

Can't feel my fingers anymore
Can't raise my hand and ask for more
Dance my doll across the floor
Or fire a flag from a pistol

They pulled the stars down one by one
Hauled up the moon to wish upon
The puppet finally cut his strings
And free at last from earthly things
He's dancing on the ceiling
With a showgirl in a feather dress
Time is meaningless
We carried you on buckled limbs
Through mournful airs and martyrs hymns
Then one blue and one more yellow pill
One keeps you quiet, one keeps you still
You sang "The Way You Look Tonight"
Your voice is ringing true and clear
Then you wore them down like candlelight

And in the darkness, you'd best beware
And in the darkness, you'd best beware
You'd best beware, you'd best beware
I used to love him when I used to care
Canopy, satin trim, slowly closing
The puppet has cut his strings
