Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians - Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars / by Rollie Agado

I'm an Edie Brickell fan.

This may be due to the fact that she's a fellow Texan and she kinda reminded me of 10,000 Maniacs.

My heart was crushed the moment I heard Paul Simon got her to marry him...  they recently had the cops called on them after getting into a fight and she's on my mind ever since.

Of all the artists that I wished I fit into the drunken podcast over the weekend, I think I would have selected a deep cut from this album.

Listened to this album for the first time in maybe 15 years and I can't really put my finger on why I loved it so much...  a lot of the songs are pretty poetic tho'.  I can't believe that I still remember all the lyrics to "Air of December".

This album also contains the song I casted a vote for when it came down to selecting a "Class Song" for my high-school.  The song was called "Circle" and I'm not quite sure why I thought it would be a good class song after hearing it this evening.
