The Best Non-Jerry Jerry Solo Ever

i wanted to post the video for eddie brickell & the new bohemian's classic "what i am", but, of course, her stupid record company has disabled the embedding of the youtube video, so you are going to have to take my word for it. the solo in this song really gets me. it sounds exactly like jerry circa '89 with a twinge of his fire on the mountain tone, combined with a little estimated prophet reggae vibe. its a great, classic song with a classic solo.

also, in music...i am sitting in think coffee on mercer street applying to jobs when the 10,000 maniacs song "like the weather" came on pandora. i haven't thought about this song in forever, but when i heard it, the first line hit me like a ton of bricks: "the color of the sky as far as i can see, is coal grey". does that not sum up the recent weather we have been having? it reminds me exactly of the first time i graduated college. that may it rained and rained and rained and all i wanted to do was sit outside at lindy's and drink beer and eat wildcatters. there is still one week to go before this graduation, so here's to hoping that the clouds clear.

below is the video for "like the weather". i never thought i would say this, but clearly natalie merchant is smarter than eddie brickell.
