Re: Faces and Names

There is a big difference between "confessional" songs and autobiographical songs. When in doubt, it's probably safest to assume a given song is merely confessional. IMO, learning the literal autobiographical story behind a song often robs the lyrics of their emotional power and universality and tur...

Re: Playlist: The Very Best of Soul Asylum out 01/25

Not re-opening the debate, just offering some potential explanation of the 40-year time-gap in "String of Pearls." In some interview somewhere, Dave said that he had read some of the magic realism writings of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and that it changed his approach to storytelling in his songwriting....

Re: Mavericks Want Somebody to Shove

I found a youtube video of all the fights! Just keep in mind that for every fight that is shown, there were at least three more happening simultaneously. Fights start at 0:49.

Mavericks Want Somebody to Shove

Last night I went to a Central Hockey League game between the Missouri Mavericks and the Mississippi River Kings. During a face-off, the distinctive opening bars of "Somebody To Shove" blasted from the arena p.a. system. :D I was so surprised that I yelled, "That's my band!" My family looked at me a...

Re: Soul Asylum Downfall Movie Parody

Brilliant, Jim! It was very funny and the timing was impeccable. I posted a link to the clip so some of my friends could watch it, too.

That's how I ended up here. My friends told me to find a fan site because they were sick of hearing me talk about SA so much. Welcome, Nina.

Oops! That implication was unintentional. (Very funny, Homesick! :lol:)

I only meant to recommend a good book that sheds some light on the larger issues.

Re: I dont get the unfair criticism

I think maybe a lot of the backlash against obscure bands that become famous (not just SA) is fueled by the underlying philosophy of the commentator/fan. It's sometimes a matter of whether someone is a populist or an elitist. So, maybe how someone reacts to having his/her favorite obscure band becom...

Re: New Songs! - Gravity, Into the Light, The Streets

:lol: GraveDancer, you have a very clever way with words. And you're right. Those fun, catchy new songs are downright dangerous for Soul Asylum's core audience. Don't forget, we "suicidal milfs" and "time-warp nerds" are taking Boniva and Lipitor as well as Xanax now. Why, if we lose our heads and s...
