    hang out in Podium Girls - the desperation there is way funny - terry b
    I don't get either but that is irrelevant to the comedic impact and it's resulting effect on the male centric hegemony contained therein... - svendo
    when I was a n00b there were no message boards to clutter up with trolling posts. I had to do it the hard way....standing at the mall making fun of people loudly - Platy
    ...in short, antonio_b ... it's time to embrace your inner Travis Bickle - spirito

    Wow; I haven't listened to the Feelies in a long time. I had to dig around in my collection to finally find my copy of Crazy Rhythms. Great stuff. I thought I saw a reissue of some of their stuff recently.
    You can't change people. They have to change themselves. Just like babies.

    Voted best indie band in 1987 by Rolling Stone.



    I've seen them about four or fives times, including with this lineup. Bonus points for anyone who can name the bass player.


    And this doesn't quite capture the magic of the original recording by The Dream Syndicate, but this is the best clip of this song I could find on youtube. One of my favorite songs evah.
