Listening Post

It's surprising how well this song has held up since its release back in the 90s; in fact, its nostalgic melancholia has just become more poignant as the years go by.

Here's the Verve Pipe's The Freshman.

Welcome back to Monday, gerbils.

Once, at a wedding, I sat next to a young woman who went to college with these guys. She knew them very well (her college roommate was the lead singer's girlfriend).

She told me the whole story behind this song, the real names of the people involved; she even had pictures of these people in her purse so I could put actual faces to the names.

It was an interesting peek behind the curtain.
