Wah, wah, wah. That's me.
Clearly, they are referring to the important and necessary posts I make regarding my writing process. Bwah!
All righty, a cavalcade of Cake for sola_fiamma, because not know Cake? It is unthinkable.
Short Skirt Long Jacket
This one was way popular in what, 1999? I think this song is brilliant. The lyrics, so sharp, fingernails that shine like justice, ahahahaha!! I have a whole rant about how this song captured the sort of yuppie esthetic of the 90s, the urge for personal and social gentrification, and how reworking the riff from the Velvets' Sweet Jane fit into that, but I'm not sure what they called yuppies in the 90s, and language is KEY in an argument like this. Heh. Just kidding. I'm too lazy to write that rant right now, is what it is. Also, the remix, it soars! Like a bird in the sky! So, yeah.
Also, the opening horn IMMEDIATELY invokes the universe of this song, and I admire that so much. So simple, but so much.
This is an older one of theirs that is still heard fairly often, and it's so much fun! I have no idea what it's about, though. That is often the case with Cake, but they create the worlds of every song so well that I don't care.
I Will Survive
I am shocked you haven't hear this song, Sola, SHOCKED. It is the definitive version, I think. Such a deadpan delivery, so perfect with the melodramatic lyrics! Brilliant. Oops, that word again. Sorry
Also, I forgot to mention that I put a naso-gastric tube into someone's LUNG yesterday. Kinda hard to drain the stomach contents that way. Poor lady.
