A Little Disappointed

I am a little disappointed that I forgot that Marcy Playground was playing at the House of Bricks in Des Moines last week.  All last week I had the feeling that I had something to do over the weekend but could not remember what, where, or when.  Work has been particularly hectic the past month and my brain has gone from a good brain to a swiss cheese style brain stuffed with facts and figures for work but little else.

I am not a huge MP fan, but if you take away the god awful Sex and Candy they have a pretty solid alternative pop catalog.

To commiserate, here is Blood in Alphabet Soup.

Wait, they had other songs? Honestly that is the only one I know of. The only thing that pops in there when I think of MP.

They got so pigeon holed by Sex & Candy that no one ever gave the rest of their songs a chance. I was working college radio at the time and basically forbade the DJs from playing it any more...give another song a try. Even most people who owned the CD never seemed to have listened to the rest of it more than once...which is a shame because it was pretty decent.

Same thing happens all the time though - Saigon Kick, Extreme, Faith No More, Blind Melon, etc...all basically one hit wonders since they were so defined (wrongly) by one song.

ooooh i just had a nostalgic driving my convertible VW rabbit to Lincoln, Nebraska....blaring MP (on tape), the summer of 97. OH, and a little bit of Natalie Imbruglia. Don't judge me. :)
