I was wondering why we didn’t have a Friday Night Jukebox yesterday, and I was then hit by the horrible possibility that it was a New Guy Chore and I’d totally screwed up. In either case, I decided to share a little Jeremy Messersmith. Messersmith is one of my two recent found musical loves. (The first, One eskimO has already had stuff posted by Jaybird, so Messersmith gets the nod here.)
I’ll share three songs. The first is one of my favorite from his most recent album, The Reluctant Graveyard.
The second , Tatooine, might be one that folks here have already seen elsewhere on the intertubes and features a construction paper version of the entire original Star Wars trilogy. (Best part: The AT-AT and the AT-ST shown in a way reminiscent of a baby and mother polar bear.)
And lastly a throw away but entertaining bit that seems like it should come from Ben Folds, Barenaked Ladies, Al Yankovich, or anyone else that you associate using humor in their songs. This is a medley of commonly misunderstood song lyrics, which holds up surprisingly well as an individual song in its own right.
And of course, this is an open thread…
