You must be a WGOM Citizen to rate WGOM Videos.
In all seriousness when it comes to songs of 2019 for me this has to be up there
I've had this album for a little while. Listened to it a few times, but it's really clicked this past week. No idea why as it's a little too pithy and smug, but I've been digging it all the same.
I saw this guy show up in the news yesterday.
It's Election Day!!!!!!
Since we made it through seven days of improvisational Boxer Week, and it's about to be The National Week as far as I'm concerned, I will play something from the album Boxer instead of one more song about boxers.
Get ready for lots of new National the rest of this year. Including probably every time they play this song on any late shows or the like.
Top notch usage of this song on The Americans a couple weeks ago. Here's Ferry doing a very different arrangement, which makes sense to me for 30 years later.
