Song of the Day #2,924: ‘Little Know-It-All’ – Josh Rouse

rouse-homeRandom iTunes Weekends often serve as a reminder of how quickly time passes. Today’s selection is a perfect example.

I still think of Josh Rouse as a recent discovery, but I just realized that Nashville — the album that caught my attention as a new release — came out 11 years ago. Rouse’s debut, Dressed Up Like Nebraska, was released in 1998, nearly two decades ago, making him a grizzled veteran.

A glance at his discography also reveals that he’s been remarkably consistent. Eleven albums over 18 years, without a dud in the bunch and a few I consider downright excellent.

Here’s a sweet little track from his sophomore album, 2000’s Home.

I feel all of your shame
So come here, turn off the radio
I watch you push away
And I know you suffer and succumb

So clear, if I should stay
Sleep here, out on the patio
I’ve watched you push away
And I know you crumble on your own

So be on the lookout for me
Be on the lookout for me
This is where I’ll be
Be on the lookout for me

So near all of your fame
And I’m here, this is the one you know
And I’ve watched you push away
I know you crumble on your own

So be on the lookout for me
Be on the lookout for me
This is where I’ll be
Be on the lookout for me
