"Godhopping" Dogs Die In Hot Cars
Nice name for a band, eh? Love the piano on this XTC ripoff. What are the saying?
"So we go to all the traffic and children / live far away / on the back of a big bus all the way to Bombay / When they go I am with them / but it won't be long / Godhopping for good times / when everything starts to go wrong."
Thanks to Lisa for the tip!

"Sleeps With Butterflies" Tori Amos
Although a wee bit AOR-lite, the lyrics and piano are quite nice. One assumes the weird stuff won't make it to radio. Link to samples or a full version via her website toriamos.com - go to the News section. Meanwhile, Tori will be signing her book "Piece By Piece" on Thursday, March 17, at the DC Barnes & Noble in Georgetown (3040 M Street, NW) at 7:30PM
"Danger Zone" Gwen Stefani
Could this have anything to do with Gavin and his secret lovechild?
Adopting all your history/ it’s hard being me too / Are your secrets where you left them? / Cause now your ghosts are mine as well / I think it’s time I met them and I think it’s time you tell / And you should have told me when you met me / all these things I should know?

"No One Can Hold A Candle To You" Morrissey
A recent b-side with a lovely chorus:
No one can hold a candle to you / When it comes down to virtue and truth / No one can hold a candle to you / And I dim next to you

"In A Funny Way" Mercury Rev
My favorite video of the week: handpuppets never looked so cool. The song is very Echo or something, very 80's.
