    So What Are You Listening To?

    I recently was urged to listen to Tom Waits. I've only been familiar with his later, raspy stuff, but I listened to his first album, Closing Time. My word, it's wonderful! His writing is so good, and a few of the songs just wreck me each time I hear them (Martha and Grapefruit Moon, especially).

    Favorite Setting or Time Period

    I like books set in the Regency period. For some reason I really like the descriptions of the clothing.

    So What Are You Listening To?

    I've had Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" on heavy play in my car lately. It's a perfect album, except for this remastered one I have - they added Silver Springs to the lineup, and it was engineered very poorly compared to the rest of the album - low volume, somewhat muddy. But small complaint when the rest of the album takes me back to the hot summer of 1977.

    Little House Series and Pioneer Girl Readalong

    Jack did die at Plum Creek - before the family moved to Silver Lake. Laura had been neglecting him during the illnesses, and gave him fresh water and fixed up his blanket. The next day, before Pa left for his new job with the railroad, Jack was found dead.

    We always refer to it as "The Date Rape Song."

    Soundhound works better for that. I've used it and hummed to it, and it's told me the song.

    When Elvis Costello sang it, it was an angry anthem; when Nick Lowe (who wrote it) sings it like this, it's gorgeous and sad:

    Misheard Lyrics (Mondegreens): There's A Bathroom On the Right

    Talking Heads - Making Flippy Floppy: Right lyrics: Doctor doctor, we have nothing in our pockets.... Wrong lyrics (but hilarious to sing): Doctor doctor, we have nothing in our codpiece....

    Songs That Make You Laugh; Songs That Make You Cry

    I'm addicted to Making Flippy Floppy by Talking Heads right now, from that same album. So fun!

    Misheard Lyrics (Mondegreens): There's A Bathroom On the Right

    "Girlfriend Is Better" by Talking Heads: Right lyric: I got a girlfriend with bows in her hair, nothing is better than this. Wrong lyric:I got a girlfriend with balls in her hands, nothing is better than this. I still sing it the wrong way, it makes the girlfriend sound more kickass.

    Replacement Soundtrack

    I was around during the original run (I was 8 or 9) and I distinctly remember the theme changing between seasons. So maybe it was an original you heard, just not the one from Nick At Nite.
