In the meantime, though, I was thinking about how Tina commented in my Sweet Pain post about how all she knows of Blues Traveler's first album is But Anyway, and it got me thinking.... (if you knew me and communicated with me often, right now you'd be thinking to yourself "is there anything that doesn't 'get you thinking' you chatty bitch?") Which is the bigger crime? The band that has one good song that gets a ton of radio play but when you go to buy their album the rest of the songs suck? or, the band that has one shitty song that gets a ton of radio play, but it's so shitty that you don't bother getting the album, but in reality the rest of their songs are fucking kick ass awesome? I say scenario #2 is the bigger crime against humanity, because there are a million one hit wonders out there, and usually they only had the one hit because it was really the only good thing they ever did, but it is a rare event when the one hit wonder band is actually a really good band, but nobody knows it.
Which brings me to my point, and then my song of the day. What if all you ever knew of the Spin Doctors was Two Princes? A song so shitty I won't even link to it because you'll hear 2 notes of it and think "oh, yeah, I know that song, that song sucks, which is why I never bought the album." If all you knew was that song, you would have spent all these years thinking they were just this sucky 90's pop band and you'd have been missing out on their super awesome funky goodness, and that makes me sad for you, because as long as you ignore Two Princes (and their third album) The Spin Doctors are an awesome band that deserve your ears. And so, I present, Freeway of the Plains, from their first (live) album. You can stop listening after 6.20 (if you make it that far) because then it goes into another song but I didn't feel like downloading the software that would let me edit the mp3, but I doubt anybody will actually make it that far, anyway. Enjoy! :)
