My roommate just went back to school, which means he won’t get to read for pleasure for a couple of years. To taunt him further, this week’s song is based on a popular comic book that was turned into a movie.
The Song: “Ghost World” by Aimee Mann
Finals blew, I barely knew
My graduation speech
And with college out of reach
If I can’t find a job it’s down to dad
And Myrtle Beach
So, I’m bailing this town-or
Tearing it down-or
Probably more like
The Artist: Aimee Mann is an American folk/rock singer-songwriter. Her career has been a mix of solo work and performing with others, but she’s noteworthy for being a successful independent artist. Though she is strongly opposed to music piracy, she doesn’t like record labels because they take ownership of creative works away from the artist. Bonus geek cred: Mann was in an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
