Today's MP3 from Christine Lavin

Are you sensitive Suzanne Vega type? Do you write poetry under trees (or on subways)? Do you carry a wooden basket as a purse? ? If so, you need to listen to Christine Lavin's hilarious song "Mysterious Woman" courtesy of the smart Keep The Coffee Coming. If not, you still need to listen to Christine Lavin's hilarious song "Mysterious Woman." It's not just the lyrics that satirize Ms. Luka, it's also the melody, the middle eight, the arrangement. Sample lyric:

I could get into mysterious mood
watch me ask the bartender
for a drink he cannot make
watch me order mysterious food
food even Julia Child
cannot pronounce right
from cookbooks that time has forgot
then maybe I will read
Crime and Punishment for fun
then again, maybe not
