I saw Fountains Of Wayne a couple of weeks ago and I was quickly reminded why they are some of my favorite living songwriters. I had their new record in my player for several weeks and didn’t even realize that I had let it spin so many times over, absorbing each bit of pop goodness to the fullest.
While they are guilty of writing Stacy’s Mom, most of their records are chock-full of really great songs that don’t make it to the airwaves. One of my favorite songs of theirs is actually a b-side that didn’t get recorded until many years after I first heard it. I actually had to buy a LAUNCH magazine CD-ROM (remember those?) in order to hear a live performance of it initially.
Here is that song. It’s called “Half A Woman” and is my Cover of the Week #6!
