I know that the lyric is ‘Where your life is seen through cracked spectacles,’ but it has always sounded to me like, ‘Where everything is typical.’ A ‘Scuze me, while I kiss this guy’ moment in Brit Pop if ever there was one.

This is another show that came together in blocks. A producer, a city, a word in a song, a movement…I try to leave my options open. And Pop Will Eat Itself, The Jayhawks, Bell X1, and Paul Young are thankful for it. At least, I hope they are.

Oh, and the word I was looking for when talking about the last song? “Entranced.” I got close, but didn’t quite get there.

Thank you, as always, for listening.
