Song of the Day #4,775: ‘Finer Feelings’ – Spoon

It’s been four years since I last featured a Spoon song on the blog, and back then I wrote that they are “one of those bands whose work I always love when I play it, but whose music I seldom play.”

I found myself thinking the very same thing when today’s random song popped into my headphones. This is a great track from a great album (2007’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, the band’s sixth), but one I haven’t listened to in years.

I’m going to write “Spoon deep dive” on my list of notes for possible blog entries. The band has only nine albums and I’ve really enjoyed the four I’ve heard. Time to give them a little more attention than a Random Weekend appearance every four years.

[Verse One]
Memphis comes creeping down my back
Somehow this place tastes just like an attack
A hundred-yard-stare of a kiss
Lord, I know I’ll never miss it
They told me stop scouting the field
They told me have a look in commercial appeal
And start getting that hair cut sharp

[Chorus]
Sometimes I think that I’ll find a love
One that’s gonna change my heart
I’ll find it in commercial appeal
And then this heartache’ll get chased away

[Verse Two]
I was part-time at the Tasty Prawn
That and moving furniture and cutting lawns
Covered in newsprint, staying up real late
Just holding out for some fate

[Chorus]
Sometimes I think that I’ll find a love
One that’s gonna change my heart
I’ll find it in commercial appeal
And then this heartache’ll get chased away
Sometimes I think that I’ll find a love
One that’s gonna change my heart
I’ll find it in commercial appeal
And then this heartache’ll get chased away

[Verse Three]
I was dreaming in the driver’s seat
When the right words just came to me
And all my finer feelings came up
Always out on some witch’s hunt
For the one who never lets me want
Before you know it it’s all fuss

[Chorus]
Sometimes I think that I’ll find a love
One that’s gonna change my heart
I’ll find it in commercial appeal
And then this heartache’ll get chased away
Sometimes I think that I’ll find a love
One that’s gonna change my heart
I’ll find it in commercial appeal
And then this heartache’ll get chased away
