Are you gonna find another boy to spoon?

So, Emily beat me in that last song-off. She edged me out with 11 votes to 10, fair and square. C'est la vie. I still like my song plenty and I'm just glad I made a few fans out of it in the process. I even found their CD on sale for $1.50 while the music war was raging. Brand new, no less! It's on its way.

However, if I'd have had a second choice of bands to do battle with, I would have gone with Herman Dune, this Swedish band I've taken a liking to over the past year. Their songs are ridiculous but impossibly catchy, all the same. Maybe I like bands that refuse to take themselves too seriously? There's got to be something to that. Hmm. I was even going to put up the live version of the cute and poppy "I Wish I Could See You Soon," lest voters get swayed by the theatrics of the music video. I mean, with the angels and kids and finger painting going on, this looks like it could have easily existed on Sesame Street. Now that I don't have to worry about all of that, I'll go ahead and share. Because sharing's my favorite.
