Barenaked Ladies

Now that I have your attention, this post really is about Barenaked Ladies...However it's really a band, often abbreviated BNL. I was introduced to them on the way to FreedomFest by Shawn and Alicia. Contrary to what their name might suggest, they're nowhere near offensive--not even as much as, for instance, Linkin Park. I found them to be very lyrically awesome, on the level of hey-this-song-has-no-possibility-of-offending-anyone's-morality and on the level of, well, just plain awesomeness. The band name's a bit awkward--for instance it just sound weird if you're looking for band info and you say you're looking for barenaked ladies on the internet. Check these lyrics:

I'm so chill / No wonder it's freezing
I'm so still / I can't seem to keep my fingers out of anything
I'm so thrilled to finally be failing
I'm so done / Turn me over 'cause it feels just like I'm falling for the first time
Anything plain can be lovely; Anything loved can be lost
Maybe I lost my direction? What if our love is the cost?

(from Falling for the First Time)

Anyway, I thought I'd make a post about something.

your great grandmother would refer to them as bare nekkid ladies. doesn't that sound better. i will need to reread and reread their lyrics to sort of get it, but at first glance...at least they rhyme. always glad to read your awesome blog.

okay. i've read it over a few times and here's what i think:

it's freezing because they are bare nekkid.

they are just now FINALLY failing? i fail all the time.

falling for the first time. Ain't that sweet. i remember that.

anything plain is lovely. i like that.

anything loved can be lost. sad but true.

lost my direction. so stop at a gas station and ask.

what if our love is the cost. well. hmmmmm.
