So. I was mentioning earlier that one of the things I’ve been rolling around in my head is a possible soundtrack for Practically Perfect in Every Way (strictly for my own amusement. Well—and yours, too.) I started out thinking that this would be a hoot, but by the end, I felt strangely earnest about every selection. You know why? It’s like making a mixed tape. So, in a Cusackian pose, boom box over head, I play you the following:
You give me a metaphor, They Might Be Giants, and I take it literally.
On the other hand, I go with this metaphor.
(The actual song starts around the minute mark.)
I haven’t listened to the lyrics carefully; please know I mean nothing untoward.
Too bad it's such a great song for "Magnolia."
Like this one could have been anything else.
Love the song.
