Bait And Switch

Another of my 2012 favorites. The shortest song on any album is nearly always the best one.

Another Ten Reasons

One of my musical thrills of 2012 was the Young Fresh Fellows releasing their 13th album on my birthday. Very few people realized that they made one this last year.

And the meek shall inherit the earth....

We've taken care of everything
The words your read, the songs you sing
The pictures that give pleasure to your eye
It's one for all, none for one
We work together common sons
Never need to wonder how or why

We are the priests of the temples of Syrinx
Our great computers fill the hallowed halls
We are the priests of the temples of Syrinx
All the gifts of life are held within our walls
