When Robbie Fulks writes a song about your songwriting, you must be on to something:
I saw FOW open for Tom Petty a few years back, it was a great show on a beautiful night on Chicago's Lakefront. I thought it was perfect, because "Last Night" is such a TP&H type song (basically the "American Girl" riff faster).
One of my FOW favs- Bought for a song:
Do you mean this tune (the Strokes)?
Bought For a Song is indeed another great one
The Cars references. The Fast Times homage. The hooks.
Love the scene of them each gazing at the other's picture. Scrubs also put it to great use, as they did with so many songs.
one of my favorite groups...and here are my two favorites by them:
There are too many to pick one or even a dozen.... Got to hang with their ace guitar wiz Jody Porter for a while, he's a hell of a player and a nice guy. His album, Month of Mondays, is about to be released any day now.
I've seen them live many times and highly recommend it.
They are GREAT songwriters who have mastered the art of the hook and the catchy chorus, and also the sly, clever lyrics. The have too many good songs for me to pick just one, but check out "Valley of Malls". One of my favorite bands ever.
Hackensack is awesome, but this is the one that kills me:
Luckily, Chris Collingwood lives in Northampton and I get to see him whenever he comes into Boston for shows, so I have had the chance to tell him how much I love this song on numerous occasions.
I didn't really latch onto them until 'Stacy's Mom' and the 'Welcome Interstate Managers' album... but when I did, I fell hard. Basically didn't pull that disc out the player for about a year. Great songs, masterful playing and arrangements.
Damned good stuff.
I found out about them when in college, when I dug into the soundtrack of "That Thing You Do" to find out who wrote that song. Much to my surprise it was the bass player for Fountains of Wayne, I think "Stacy's Mom" was already a hit by then.
I like to play this one on my iPod
Thanks guys, I had heard of them but never actually heard them. Good stuff Love the Staci's Mom Cars tribute (the video is awesome!). Remind me a wee bit of REM, but better, I think.
I tend to not get too excited about the bands the critics really love-- Radiohead, Wilco, etc. But I dig these guys.
valley winter song is one of my all time faves...
smart, wonderful pop.
One of my very favorite bands. A few that haven't been mentioned yet and show some of the diversity of their songwriting.
Here's the guy who sings the lead vocal on that Oneders track, Mike Viola:
We share a producer/mixer named Ducky Carlisle and Mike is a fantastic songwriter in the same general genre as Fountains Of Wayne. Here's one of his:
