this is the best band out there, period. you should get all of their records, go see them in concert as often as you can, and tell your friends. the writing and playing and singing tug at my fan of 80s pop/ music aficionado/ lover of quirky lyrics heartstrings. this record is their first, and it's lights out. i love everything about all of these songs, but the corner of my smile draws upward at 5:27 on this cut. it's worth the wait, i promise.
when i was a kid, my folks would deck me out in a cowboy costume and cart me around to talent shows. i played pretty mediocre guitar and sang oak ridge boy tunes. i think i pulled in a $25 gift certificate with a 2nd place finish on my rendition of this classic. all of those grade school honeys went bananas when i hit 'em with the money making line, which first appears here at 1:00. dig that crazy beard and those clever music note decorations.
