I wish I've known about the band, The Weakerthans
before. They're a good one and they've been around for quite some time. I've only learned about them a few months ago from this great site, Webjay - Playlist Community
. In fact, I've discovered a lot of of other awesome bands from this site. Its just a shame I hadn't heard all of this earlier, say back during my college years. It could have saved me from listening to too much pop music. Hehe. Anyways, here are some of The Weakerthans' songs. (They do write amazing lyrics, poetic in more ways than one.
From The Last Last One:
You always stole all my last words. Here's no exception then, one more for me to send. And nothing happens in the end. I'm thinking of you less, more concerned... and more is less, I guess it doesn't matter now. Maybe we'll never go insane. You always said we would, sometimes I wished we could with you lying naked in the rain and singing Boney M, cutting down all our old friends. I talk to them again now. So here's the last one I have left.
From The Reasons:
How the time is never now, and we know who we should love, but we're never certain how. I know you might roll your eyes at this, but I'm so glad that you exist.
From Plea From A Cat Named Virtute:
Why don't you ever want to play? I'm tired of this piece of string. You sleep as much as I do now, and you don't eat much of anything. I don't know who you're talking to-I made a search through every room, but all I found was dust that moved in shadows of the afternoon. And listen, about those bitter songs you sing? They're not helping anything. They won't make you strong. So, we should open up the house. Invite the tabby two doors down. You could ask your sister, if she doesn't bring her Basset Hound. Ask the things you shouldn't miss: tape-hiss and the Modern Man, The Cold War and Card Catalogues, to come and join us if they can, for girly drinks and parlor games.
