MP3 of the Day: A personal favorite

A great blog called Two And 1/2 Pounds Of Bacon has posted three Michelle Shocked tracks from her great 1988 CD Short Sharp Shocked, a college favorite. They are all some of her best, but "Anchorage" is a song that will stay with me for the rest of my life. A wisftul song written as letters to and from very old friends. If you don't know this song, you are in for a treat. Get it fast!

Ah - Michelle Shocked! I still have the "Anchorage" single. I remember the video of her skateboarding. Cool chick. Do you remember when MTV first started the "unplugged" thing? Before they went insane with it - It usually people like Michelle Shocked who'd appear and do some acousting numbers.

Now if you tell me you know Phranc, I'm going to die! :)

By the way: Leroy says "hello"
