Hey R&P. So what became of those awful toe rings? (#31)?

Hi Everybody.
Well, here's the top 101, mix tape rules song of the day. Mix tape rules simply means that I only allowed myself one song by each act. I hope you all enjoy it.

First off, here are the recent selections:
43. Fuazi - Place Position
42. Beck - Guess I'm Doing Fine
41. Nick Drake - Things Behind the Sun
40. Brian Wilson - Surf's Up
39. Aimee Mann - It's Not
38. The Silver Jews - The Wild Kindness
37. Billy Joel - Laura
36. Sebadoh - Homemade
35. Sonic Youth - Dirty Boots
34. Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
33. Guided By Voices - Bulldog Skin
32. Oingo Boingo - On the Outside

For number 31 I went with a tune from one of my favorite figures in all of rock and roll. This song is incredibly catchy and fun. Great lyrics, a great arc. Not a ton to say about it. It's just a very cool song.

Stephen Malkmus - Jenny & the Ess Dog

So, how did you like it? What's your favorite Malkmus tune? Who is your favorite artist gone solo?

Thanks a lot for listening. I hope you're all having a really great week so far.

Answer on Hey R&P. So what became of those awful toe rings? (#31)?

hey prof,

cool song indeed.
certainly more accessible than the few bits of pavement i've managed to listen to.
i tried brighten the corners once. i didn't get it.
and i have a strange aversion to going backwards, even though it might mean missing something.
