One of the reasons I love Bob Schneider’s music so much is that his lyrics occasionally get completely wacky, but still there’s something in there that’s really touching. Here’s the latest video from his EP King Kong Vol. 1.

LYRICS:

We got the kind of love that people write songs about
And in the morning when I wake up I’m so happy that it freaks me out

And I’ve never felt this way
We’re perfect in every single way

Don’t f**k it up
Don’t f**k it up
We got a good thing going
Baby don’t f**k it up

Your kiss is on my list and I don’t ever wanna cross it off
And once you get me g-g-going girl you make it impossible to stop, yeah

And I know you feel it too
It doesn’t have to be too good to be true

Don’t f**k it up
(Baby baby don’t let me down)
Don’t f**k it up
(Listen to me I ain’t kidding around)
We got a good thing going
Baby don’t f**k it up

This is awesome and you know it
So baby try not to blow it
‘Cause this’ll only happen once or twice

Don’t f**k it up
(Baby baby don’t let me down)
Don’t f**k it up
(Listen to me I ain’t kidding around)
We got a good thing going
Baby don’t f**k it up
Don’t f**k it up
(I’m sorry if it sounds a little profane)
Don’t f**k it up
(No other words really say it the same)
We got a good thing going
Baby don’t f**k it up

A BBC Interview With XTC Maestro Andy Partridge

Brian Wilson had no idea
Music • Views: 27,256

YouTube

It’s XTC day at LGF, so here’s a fascinating interview with Andy Partridge from Alan Thompson’s BBC Radio show, with some of Andy’s favorite XTC songs interspersed. Andy’s impersonation of Sting is an instant classic, and his discussion of the rigors of touring really hit home for me, as someone who toured all over the world for years. (It ain’t all it’s cracked up to be, folks.)

Classic XTC: “The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead” (Official Video)

“Any kind of love is all all right”
Music • Views: 25,250

YouTube

I’ve never understood why XTC weren’t immensely popular; this badass band created some of the greatest music ever made by humans. “The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead” is from their album Nonsuch.

Peter Pumpkinhead came to town
Spreading wisdom and cash around
Fed the starving and housed the poor
Showed the Vatican what gold’s for

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin
Who’ll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?

Peter Pumpkinhead brought to shame
Governments who would slur his name
Lusts and sex scandals failed outright
Peter merely said, “Any kind of love is all all right”

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin
Who’ll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?

Peter Pumpkinhead was too good
Had him nailed to a chunk of wood
He died grinning on live TV
Hanging there he looked a lot like you, and an awful lot like me

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Hooray for Peter Pumpkin
Who’ll pray for Peter Pumpkinhead?

Hooray for Peter Pumpkin
Who’ll pray for Peter Pumpkin?
Hooray for Peter Pumpkinhead
Oh my oh my, don’t it make you want to cry, oh

Thursday Night Acoustic Excellence: Punch Brothers: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Just the best acoustic band in the universe, that’s all
Music • Views: 26,155

YouTube

These NPR Tiny Desk Concerts highlight some of the best music in the world today, and this one is a real gem among gems.

Spoiler alert: The Punch Brothers came to the Tiny Desk on Chris Thile’s birthday. We made him a cake and gave him an NPR surprise! This wasn’t the first time the brilliant mandolinist had brought a project to my desk — it was his fourth. The last time was with his longtime band Nickel Creek, but also with his new braces. So the cake we presented here was inscribed “Brace Yourself Chris Happy Birthday.” He blew out the candles and then, along with this versatile and talented band, rocked our world.

Punch Brothers mixes the worlds of bluegrass, pop and classical. It’s a tough combination to imagine, an even harder one to make work, but this band of fiddler, Gabe Witcher, Noam Pikelny on banjo, guitarist Chris Eldridge and bassist Paul Kowert make the unimaginable contagious and fun. They push boundaries and make music like no one else.

Set List
• “My Oh My” 2:04
• “Boll Weevil” 6:23
• “Magnet” 10:36
• “Julep” 14:45

Saturday Noir: Bob Schneider, “Chinatown”

A long-lost Tom Waits song?
Music • Views: 22,522

There’s a cold wind blowin’ down the ninety nine
And the ghosts of New York City they all doin’ just fine
When that little Smith and Wesson went and lit up the night
All she showed when she heard were them cold pearly whites

None of them kisses dropped down in the hole
While the midnight sun played the starring role
Was gonna turn around that black Cadillac
Filled with little white rails, just the cold hard facts

So when you done dancing and the rain slows down
We’ll all meet up at Eddy’s o’er in Chinatown

Think you got the answers but you got it all wrong
The days too short and the nights are way too long
Wake up to find your whole world falling apart
In a fifty dollar dress over a broken heart

Dig in the dirt while you’re dancing with the dogs
Rollin’ around lost in a fog
Bangin’ on tomorrow like a big black drum
Kick your head back and spit at the sun

So when you done dancing and the rain slows down
We’ll all meet up at Eddy’s o’er in Chinatown
We’ll all meet up at Eddy’s o’er in Chinatown

There’s fifty on the table there’s trouble down the line
There’s 200,000 dollars nobody’s ever gonna find
You know you’ll never see her come walking through the door
And the bars about to close and the sky’s about to pour

You take your last slug and stumble out into the street
You pull out your gun and you whisper trick or treat
And as you pull the trigger beyond a shadow of a doubt
You hear her sayin’ the name and the lights go out

So when you get done dancing and the rain slows down
We’ll all meet up at Eddy’s o’er in Chinatown
We’ll all meet up at Eddy’s o’er in Chinatown
We’ll all meet up at Eddy’s o’er in Chinatown
