Listening Post

They were a late-90s one-hit wonder, but if you live in Southern California -- or really anywhere near a beach -- this is still kind of your song.

Here's Len's Steal My Sunshine.

Happy Friday, kids.

Wow. Sweet little song off the "Go" soundtrack.

They were Canadian, and there was a brief window in the late 90's when, after MTV totally divested itself of music videos, for some reason I was able to get the Canadian cable channel MuchMusic here in Southern California, which *did* show music videos, including this one. There were some real gems from that era with videos that probably remained unseen from that era until YouTube, like The Cardigan's "My Favorite Game" with Nina Persson speeding recklessly in a convertable in the desert. God I miss them.

Funny that you posted this today. Maxim magazine has their list of the 100 songs you can't get out of your head. This song was in the top 10, I believe.

A great song made better by using a riff from a song sung by a 1970's adult film star.
