Recording this strange (rather local) record for Bob, who seemed interested.

But coincidentally I bought his self-titled on vinyl the other day. I think it's by far his best studio album, with Live at the Old Quarter being his best album in general. Overall a great and, yes, underrated musician. However, I find myself starting to disagree with his cult following's opinion on his ability as a songwriter. He definitely was an amazing songwriter, just not to the degree that they make him out to be.

In my opinion, he isn't as good as Dylan or Waits when it comes to songwriting, but a lot of his lyrics are simply amazing. A current favorite is (Quicksilver Daydreams of) Maria. The structure is pretty repetitive, but it has a timeless melody.

Bob, I'm sure you know the blues magoos?
Somehow the Sorrows make me think of them.

I had never heard of the "I married Joan" show before, but it appears to have been very popular...just not as popular as "I love Lucy," which of course I *have* seen. Completely ahistorical am I not!

Unfortunately, I couldn't find out who the singers were either, but I learned the following about the a capella chorus from YouTube comments, which I felt were interesting if true (and even if not true):

About the "I married Joan" theme song:

I think this may be the only show (certainly the first) in TV history that had a theme song sung by an a capella chorus. There were no instruments in this theme. I remember my dad telling me this...something about musicians being scarce at that time after the wars etc. (However) the reason the show had an a capella theme song, as well as a capella background music in the episodes, was the show went into production during a musician's strike.

Also, I learned THIS interesting bit of "ancient" history, skaltezon: apparently the "I married Joan" show spawned "Gilligan's Island" after Jim Backus and show writer Sherwood Schwartz became friends and Schwartz wanted Backus to do the pilot for "Gilligan's Island."

Now THAT was a show, and I loved its theme song that used to welcome me into a comforting escape from the "stressful pressures" of elementary school:

"Gilligan's Island" Opening Song

Er...well...Tumor...er...I actually don't like the sound of Bikini Kill's song "Sugar" very much, or its structure, or her thin, nasally voice. But I do like the beat and I do like the song's message, which I feel is best summarized by this line from the song: "I won't play girl to your boy no more, sugar."

I believe this line refers to roles women may play in sex to try to stroke the superficial ego of a male whose primary interest is feeling like some macho stud while the woman feels her own desires unfulfilled. This is why you've got to find your own "sugar."

The song makes me wonder at whom she is angrier. Herself, for putting herself in this situation, or the guy for accepting or wanting it?

So, now that I've thought about the song more, I like it. I like the bitter tone and the self-loathing that spurs her to stop doing a disservice to herself and start feeling deserving of sweetness.
