The Rich Girls Are Weeping

Variation Three of A Prelude to Interpol's Our Love To Admire: Waving, Not Drowning (the final installment, see Tuesday's post for the (cranky) introduction).

[There's a poem, by Stevie Smith, about a man, far from shore -- the spectators on the beach think he's waving, when he is in fact drowning: 'I was much too far out all my life/And not waving but drowning.' What's presented here means to convey the inverse of that melancholy statement. ]

[Public Service Announcement: Hey, New York area readers! I know a lot of you are in bands -- our lovely pals The Bellmer Dolls need to go pick up a new board for their studio and their transport plans just fell through this morning. The catch is, it's out in Iowa! Have a van you're not using right now and would like to hire out for a side trip in return for some quality studio time? (Secret Machines used the Dolls' facility to record and mix their latest effort.) It'll be your good deed for the day week month year! Drop them a line (bellmerdolls AT yahoo DOT com) if you can be of assistance. Thank you!!!]

I've had "Sloop John B" in my head all day. I officially hate myself for suggestion of this song and possibly for mockery of Paul's nautical metaphors. "See how the main sail sets..." Gah. GET OUT OF MY MIND!!!

Great songs, really enjoyed hearing the Hope Blister - have you heard the John Cale original from Paris 1919? Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the three excellent playlists. A few things I've never heard.
