Bank Job

I've updated my "Song of the Moment" on the sidebar. It's now Bank Job from the new Barenaked Ladies album Barenaked Ladies Are Me. I finally managed to get it downloaded earlier in the week (I was looking for the delux edition, which includes the album that will be released next year sometime). I'm still not sure how I feel about it. It'll probably be a grower, like their last album. But there are a couple of really good songs on first listen, including Bank Job. If nothing else, you can always rely on BNL to make you laugh.

We all had our ski masks
And sawed off shotguns
But how do you plan for
A bank full of nuns

But I guess we panicked
We all have taboos
And they were like zebras
They had us confused

Have you heard their take on Lisa Loebs 'stay'? I'll try to find those lyrics. Just wrong, funny-yes, but wrong.

I am still obsessed with Martha Wainwright right now.

A lady at work likes BNL, so I got a copy of "Stunt" from her. I like them, but it takes a long while for me to like their songs, I have to have several listens.

Those lyrics are just plain funny!

I love BNL. And yes, such goofy/clever lyrics

I need to get their new album.
