Listening to a Spotify radio station just now (feature parity with Pandora, IMHO) I got The Shins’ So Says I. If you’re unfamiliar with the song, it’s a great, rocking tune from a band probably better associated with more alternative, janglier stuff.
Granted, it’s still fairly literate/academic, but for a song about materialism/communism/capitalism it’s pretty darn catchy.
The YouTube video is great (and animated)!
The reason I’m posting is because I immediately thought of Gilmore Girls when I heard it and I haven’t thought about that show in a long time. The connection: The Shins performed the song “live” on the show in Season 4.
We caught a few, brief seconds of Parenthood (the current TV show) last night & I saw Lauren Graham on screen so maybe I just have Gilmore brain.
