debs: (Music is my boyfriend)

I'll admit that I came shamefully late to the Barenaked Ladies party. While I spent a lot of the 90s enjoying "Shoebox", they turned me off with "One Week" (which, oddly, I now love) and I didn't get plugged back in until sometime in college when a friend of mine became obsessed with the Greatest Hits v.I album. Now they are one of the bands I wish I had made the effort to see live while they were still whole.

I find their music to be just the right blend of peppy and poignant, and the lyrics are generally smart and grin-inducing. This is one of their simpler ones, but it's also one of my favorites. I've always thought it as a letter of warning written to me (I identify with it a little too much).

Also, hello new/old Dar Williams album. I do not care that I own everything on here, I'm buying you because of the acoustic recordings with awesome people like Sean & Sara Watkins and Patty Larkin, thank you.
