Sprites - twee for valentines day

For you bloggers I give you my favorite song of the day:

Band: Sprites
Song: I started a blog nobody read mp3

After the demise of the band Barcelona, singer Jason Korzen continued on now with his wife Amy and a revolving door of friends in the musical outfit Sprites. To counter the difficulty Jason had in composing with a set group of people, Sprites was intentionally set up to have fellow musicians "...come together in different arrangements, write songs together, perform, and hang out. Nobody should ever have to be kicked out. The band would never have to break up." The result is cute, lyrically songs with witty observations of love, life and that sense of wanting a girl that you intermittently say hi to smoking outside a show. The wonderful catbirdseat describes them as "mega-twee" so you've been forewarned.

You can download a bunch of songs like one about director George Romero or a nifty cover of Flesh For Lulu's I Go Crazy (youtube vid - this song has a great connection to my high school years for me) at their website.


lyrics after the jump

I started a blog which nobody read
When I went to work
I blogged there instead

I started a blog which nobody viewed
It might be in cache
The topics include:

"George Bush is an evil moron"
"What's the story with revolving doors?"
"I'm in love with a girl who doesn't notice me"
"Nobody hates preppies anymore"

I started a blog but nobody came
No issues were raised
No comments were made

I started a blog which nobody read
I'll admit it wasn't that great
But if you must know here's what it said:

"100 of my favorite albums"
"200 people I can't stand"
"400 movies you must see soon"
"10 celebrities (4 of whom I might assassinate)"

I started a blog, I sent you the link
I wanted the world (and you) to know what I think

I started a blog, but when I read yours
It made me forget
what I had started mine for

    It's a shame you can't relate to that at all.
