My Favorite Song This Minute

As I was catching on some Tiny Desk Concerts I was reminded of these posts after seeing The Tallest Man on Earth performing.
Eef Barzley "I Wasn't Really Drunk."
I liked his album LOSE BIG (Especially the song "The Girls Don't Care") so I thought I'd check out the older stuff.
It's from 2006 but it's my favorite head phone song right now. It's on every playlist I take on the plane with me.


BTW I started labeling these posts as Favorite Song so people could look back at other favorites. It's only three so far but eventually it will be a nice little collection.

I must thank you for The Tallest Man On Earth. After reading about him here and then checking him out on Youtube, I searched out his CD and have since become a big fan. Never would have heard about him without your recommendation. Thanks.

Yay for Eef Barzelay! Do you know his other band, Clem Snide? They are awesome. I like the album The Ghost of Fashion best.

I went to see them live once, at a smallish venue and it was very exciting and when they were on stage I yelled "EEEEEF!!" because, let's face it, "eef" is fun to say. It happened to be at a lull in the crowd so I was embarrassed. He looked over and was like "hi!" then to the crowd he said "that's my sister." Then I was simultaneously more and less embarrassed.

EEEEF!!

Looking forward to hearing it. Crazy Crazy Insane has become a regular on my playlist's. My kids totally dig the whistling.

Jorge--I'm waiting for pumpkin pictures. You are carving them again this year, right?

Dylan Gault said...

My wife and I were big fans of Clem Snide. Fans of Eef should definitely check them out.

We saw the band a few years ago and talked to Eef a while before the show. Quite a nice guy.

I little irony given this post: one of my favorite Clem Snide songs (and albums) is "Your Favorite Music".

Jorge,

Appropriate song for a singer with ‘Bar’ in his name.

I am stuck in the 90's as far as music is concerned...

Something has to be really good to get on my iPod...Like Jamie T for instance.

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.
