Ben, I realize I am treading on the beautiful archedness* of your post, but for the benefit of those of us near sleeping babies, and thus unable to click on audio links, can you clarify which song you are talking about?

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,
Witt

*Archidity? There must be an actual word for this quality.

The song is called "Waltze of the Tennis Players", originally by 60s duo Allan Fraser and Daisy Debolt, here performed by Meg Baird.

Good lord, I got a straight reply. Thanks.

(And no, I think the word I want doesn't actually exist, or is some weird not-entirely-English amalgam in my head. But thanks anyway.)

That's a really nice song, but it seems to be impossible to purchase the CD at the moment.

I don't care if you have a pretty voice, you still don't get to spell it "nite."Neither do you get to drive "thru" anything, nor do you get to diet by eating "lite" food. Mr. w-lfs-n, you are fiddling while the OED burns. For shame,etc...

Even if one agrees that the song--if it isn't totally beguiling--is very nice, one can't but deplore Forced Exposure's advertising copy:

"And her cover of The New Riders of the Purple Sage song 'All I Ever Wanted' will make your heart explode in a way the NRPS version never did -- gently."

I put it to you thus: why would one wish to listen to a song that would make one's heart explode and in such a twee fashion?

I was able to tune in only for the last half hour, but the whole program looks interesting. Might it be available in recorded form at some point?

Yes, it has come to that. All of his shit is in the lobby---oy, my back hurts. Among his affairs I found the packaging for an iPhone, which certainly puts the lie to the idea that he couldn't spring for rent.

Christ, my roommate really has no long-term thinking skills at all. He's now pacing on the sidewalk, and it's clear he has no idea what to do---despite knowing for three whole months that today was the absolute last day (and telling my other roommate that he'd return the keys this morning).

Somewhat amusing fact: among the various expensive-looking prescription drugs he had in his room was a bottle of Cialis.

What kind of a mom are you, JM, kicking the guy out of the house just because he's not quite perfect and occasionally does the wrong thing? Bitch. You don't care about others, do you? The word "nurturing" means nothing to you, does it?
