That's good! The weather's getting warmer out! You knowso it's nice to get some see some sunlight out here, because we all livein the east. I know our listeners are all over the world, but where we livein the eastern part of the United States, it's been a pretty miserablewinter. I would say for for multiple reasons, but now it's starting to getnicer out hitting you know, sixty degrees Fahrenheit, so definitelylooking forward to getting some vitamin D. Yes, the proper way, but with sunscreen, because you know when you get to that point, where you're outsideyou're doing some yard work, you're getting stuff done, and then it's threeo'clock and then you're like Oh snap. What did I forget? You forgot sonscreen yeah and then, when you take off your share, when you go to the beach-and you know in a couple weeks yeah you look like what farmers Tanright. That's all right! That's right! It's all GOI, believe you know whathappened Bro. I do a lot of things outside in the summer and I don't wearthe sun screen.

It's seriously. I mean it's gotten better over the years, butholy Geez like the first couple years, just like trying to get just gettingsun screen on their face would take like I be like a head. That's like ahalf hour process, just to get them out the door, and then we go outside forfive minutes, and I, like I want to go back inside, I'm like no we're stayingoutside. I don't care. It's A. I thought it was his idea what if therewas a shirt that someone they you could put on for kids and has sunstrewnalready in, and it makes it tight and just its every crevice of their facewhen they put it on. Oh, my God,...

I've been there when I was a macho kid in my ties and I'm out therein the beach all day, long with no sun screen and then all of a sudden I gethome and I need Allo all over me. Oh yeah, it's not even it's not even theburn dude. It's not even the burn.

We discuss each episode now this one we're talking about thisis this is a pretty good nines classic song here. I think buck we're talkingabout popular from not a serf. Also before I get go in, I want to give aquick shot at one of our loyal listeners, R, Irish Keith. I was talking to Keith over twitter andhe was saying he's working seventeen hour days, which is insane not having alot of time off either so keith stay strong body appreciate you listening tous, and hopefully you get some much deserved vacation time, buddy nowpopular, which was off the album high low, which came out in one thousandnine hundred and ninety six. Now the writers of the Song Matthew, Caus,Daniel Lorca and Gloria winters, now caus and Lorca they're members of not aserf, but as for winters at the time of this song's release in one thousandnine hundred and ninety six winters was sixty five years old. So how the heckdoes she fit into all this? Well, winters wrote a book called Penny'sGuide, a teenage charm and popularity in one thousand, nine hundred and sixtyfour, which was an etiquette book aimed at young girls. So well we'll dig intothe lyrics a bit, but you probably know what we're going with this already butyeah. I had no idea, that's what that's where they pulled all that stuff from,but yeah who knew. Also, this song was produced by Rikaat, so he said he's alegend. I love the cars. Oh Wow, I didn't know that YEP so buck. What arewhat are your some of your memories of this? Not a Surf Popular Song, a so one thousand nine hundred and ninetysix, when this came out. I remember like all right. This is somethingdifferent. You know it's a message to kind of my youth, like I'm in highschool and kind of in this thing I just thought it was kind of like a funnylittle song about you know giving sarcastic advice to me. You know like yeah and I didn't thinkmuch of the song. I thought it was...

...pretty cool and you know there's acouple catch phrases with the you know when you see Johnny in the hall way.You know I just like this funny stuff. It's like, like half the people in thevideo are paying attention and it's only resonating on a couple people thatwhat what he's actually proposing or what he's saying to his audience, it's something that they should do, andit's just it's just a funny way to explain. You know high school and thelittle problems we have to go through and just breaking up with. Somebody issomething that that needs to be explained like that, which is justfunny it's just a funny song. I have a lot of I don't I wouldn't say I have alot of memories of it because you know why it's one of those songs that justnever kind of was replayed after that it wasn't likeon any kind of like a hit like serious or any those kinds of stations nines orwhat have you? I just not been replayed so when, when you ask me to listen upas I what's someone gas this and I'm like okay, okay, I remember that so it's oneof those like it. Just as like said it forget it, but it you remember bout, alot about it when you, when you listen to it, so it's just one of those bit.It's like those time capsules, yea. You have Right, yeah, Oh yeah, yeah. Thisis definitely a time capsule song for sure, Oh yeah for sure yeah. This onedefinitely takes you back to the S S. I think, as does the whole album, I thinkwe'll talk about the album and a love bit but yeah I mean I for me. Iremember when this song came out at that time, though I was into heavierstuff. I think at this point I was like super into fear factory, a lot of theheavier. You know, industrial metal. I was listening to at the time and I wasn't the biggest fan of thissong when it came out, but I feel like it has grown on me over the years. Yeah, quick Tibet. The video was shotat Beyon High School in New Jersey old, where they also shot Marie carry's someday and pro jams, Jeremy. So a little will trivia there for you, kids, Wowand also, I think, the one thing that kind of turns me off from the song, atleast at the time that opening rit right it reminded me a lot of MarilynManson sweet dreams like the cover they did of the the Arithmic Song. Okay, Ithink that kind of pushed me away from this song just kind of due to thatsimilarity. I was like come on guys. You know come up with somethingoriginal and different. I think from what they said, though they actuallykind of got that idea for that riff more so from Sonic Youth, I think so,but still got it. I think the beginning of the song kindof gives you that you know that wheezer sweater song kindof odd to it too. You know a little bit, yeah, absolutely Yep, but that songs aclassic and Oh, that the blue, album is that'sgreat weise on another pedestal, sorry guys,...

...yeah, just just just a little bit now popular. It's maybe not that popular onPotifer eamed over eighteen million times. So I mean it's not terrible, butI mean I think, compared to some of the other songs we've done, which I thinkbohus goes to your point. You know this song, you know kind ofgot it's kind of been forgotten. I thinkyou know for only being streamed over eighteen million times. You know a lotof other. You know kind of one hit, wonder so to speak. They've had some oftheir songs streamed. You know almost you know a hundred million times andthis one's only eighteen million and not a surf. They have over five hundredand twelve thousand monthly listeners on POTII. So I mean it's a decentfollowing, but not you know anything massive or anything like that. Now thesong reached number eleven on the US billboard, modern rock tracks chartback in July, one thousand nine hundred and ninety six and the song was neverreleased as a single, which is actually part of the criteria to make a songeligible for the US billboard hot one hundred had they done that. I feel likeit probably would have cracked the top forty, but because it was neverreleased as an actual single. It was not eligible to be on the US bill boardhot one hundred so got you there, you have it yeah, Iceland had it as anumber one hit, though correct. Yes, he they're big over there,man all right. So so this is considered a one hit, wonder correct! Well,technically I mean, if you just if you just ask somebody and say, are theseguys are wont hit, wonder they will say yes, but if you get to like thetechnical definition, no, because the song was not released as a single butyeah I mean in theory. Okay, if you asked like Yes er popular from thissong, not question a fuck in from Padre. I got a question for you shoot. There'sone hit wonders out there and you balk around. You bought their album afterlistening to that. What really what artists or band surprised you havingjust one hit, wonder and but you liked or loved all their songs that couldthey could have been like really good hits. What o? What do you think I hateto put you on the spot? That's fine! That's fine! There's I mean so there'sa couple right. So if we go by the actual definition of a one hit, wonderright, you only have one song crack the top forty of the US billboard hot onehundred, because that's what the actual definitions of a one hit wonder. I meanbands like faith, no more candle box, blind, melon, filter and Sigo. Kickthey're technically considered. One hit wonders yeah and I love all of them. Imean faith. Memores I mean angel. Does that whole album is so damn good. So isthe real thing. Blind Mellon is great filter. I love take so there one hitwas take my picture, but that whole album title of record which came on onetousand, nine hundred and ninety nine is so freaking good. I absolutely lovethat album, so I gon kick. I love Syon. Kick there one hit that crack thetopforty was love is on the way I I'm...

...trying to get Jason Bealer on the showone of these days, I'll get them on. Okay, he's the guitars and Song rater.For that, but yeah there mean that album. The Lizard is so good, but other bands like, if you like, if youask like some random an candle box there, is that whole album is so good.But if you look at some other bands right, the verve is another one. Youknow bitter sweet symphony. For me that was really the only song I knew at thetime and I got their album and then, when I listen to the rest of the album,I was like holy Geez. These guys are fantastic and then- and then you haveRichard Ashcrofts, you know, solo stuff is also good. So I would say you know,based on that, the verb also we did a couple episodes earlier on right, saidFred and crash test dummies. Those albums aren't that bad, I kind of I waskind of digging right, said: Fred Man. I really was and crash just dummies. Iwas liking them to, but so yeah, I would say of those I would say fit like.I said, like faith and work, candlebox blind mill and filter Sego kick I'llleave those out because they are they're fantastic. I love them, butjust kind of going by. If you would ask anybody, oh these guys and one hitwonder I feel like the verb would be my answer here got Shibu. How about you,man? How about you? What's? Did you s? So it wonders that you like her I didnot is that is that the they were all out. They were all likeeighteen, nineteen year old kids, you remember that a man even younger, to behonest with you from Australia, yeah that Os God umpth guys. I have a like a running joke with my comeof my friends, I'd like when they going to make it big the the up and coming I just I alwayssometimes the association of them be in seventeen. Eighteen they're alwaysgoing to be that age in my head, because that's the only thing that cameout- Oh God, remember that Little Frog on the Oh yeah yeah, that's song,tomorrow's fantastics excellent, but they get they get put into that grunchcategory a lot I feel I mean they have that kind of, like you know, grungysound to them that that kind of like deep hard rock, so yeah they're a goodbands. I can, I give me credit for sure, but these guys not not a serf. I mean at the end of the day they came up withthis and it was not even really their idea and it was the rifts good andeverything you know it's a fun song, but at the end of the day they end upjust being like a cover of a band right. They became yeah. Not I think so. Wellso here's the thing right. So they release this album right ILO and then,after that I forget what year was. Was it ninety eight or ninety nine? Theypresented an album to their label on the labels like an now. We don't like it so like they kind ofso they I mean highlow. was there their first job, but then they had anotheralbum come out. It was ninety eight eventually did come out. That is calledthe proximity effect, but I think that was over into UK and they had a coupleof albums come out after that and like...

...they're early to mid two thousands, butthey actually put one out in two thousand and twenty as well. So therethey've been putting out some stuff, but I mean it's, I feel, like peoplestill don't know who they are. They had. You know they kind of had that hot songin the mids and then at least in the US. When that record labels like we're notgoing to put this out here, I think they kind of lost some of theirmomentum of Ben Yeah. I'm just curious just like having one hit. What whatdoes it get? You for the rest of your life, just being a band like a so theseguys, salar figured you you know. I will I mean I can't hurt. So I saw a note from not a serf Er.Somebody asked in that question and they were like. You know what that'sfine. You know because that one song really, you know, opened this up to alot of other fans and listeners. So if they didn't have that song, maybe theywould not have even gotten anywhere near. You know those five hundred andtwelve thousand monthly listeners on POTII. You know, but you know, but theyhave the one hit, that kind of opened them up to a whole new audience. I mean,I guess depends who you ask, because some of them might be like I'm so tiredof playing this song. But at the same time you know that one song is, youknow, probably bought you a house, maybe a car and a great and then amazea couple cars yeah capitalism. We when we went to go see, I mean hooting, theblowfish have had you know a couple hits, but when we saw them everybodywas like standing. I talked to this like a couple episodes ago. Actually,but Darius rocker was like looking out in the crowd and he sees everybodystanding and he looks in the front row and he goes everybody in this arena isstanding except my daughter. His daughter was like sitting in the frontrow. He goes this song put you through college so, and that was- and that wasthe only one to be with you, which is probably the biggest hit. I guess youcould say definitely their most popular one, butI mean that was a funny yeah. I mean that one song, you know, definitelypaid for a lot of stuff for them. So then you know how does this song kindof compared to the rest of the album? I mean. Obviously I think it stands outdue to the t that spoken word, but it's you know what it's a decent album. Youknow- and you and you just asked me, you know what are some you know- bands or like one hit wondersthat you think or better than that. I would put these guys in there, becauseI really like a couple songs on this album there's a song of the plan. Italmost sounds like an offspring, ish kind of like musically in the verse,Stale Mates, a cool tune, Hollywood's a decent track to I really like Zen Brain.It's not a bad. Album like it sounds like a mid. Is Alternative rock albumand that's fine. I would, I would definitely recommend it. I would sayyou know people check out high low, it's not long either. It's like tensongs and I think a clocks in that just under thirty seven minutes- and this islike a big reason- why we do. This show write the check out new music to keeppushing forward back and try new things. You know too often, as old folks getstuck ruts. It happened yeah and it happened. I don't we just put on ourour hits and our Hey Alexa play credence and she's,probably listening to me right now. You...

...know and yeah it's the same. It's thesame shit because I don't know you listen to ten getting a run HUH.Let me listen to ten for the like five millions time, but we got to talk aboutthis. Another show about ten, Oh my God. That's, but probably the best I'll evermade yeah it's up there, yeah yeah and so I've never actuallylistened to this album until now. Okay and there's a there's about like fiveor six songs. I really liked on here. So I what I should do I feel like Imight have mentioned before I feel like. I should make a playlist based on songs.I discovered and liked, because of just like doing the research from this showI feel like that would be a decent to I play list for people. That would beawesome for me all right, I mean well, then we we'll get cracking on it, I'mbeing selfish! Now, because, okay I'll never forget, there's this Guy DonMelvin from from middle school, he had access to everything. I guess he wasjust a real. He made me a CD, no, maybe what's it was it a consent? You got amix tape watch out. Well, he had he had ice t he had he just had. You know he had bad motivefinger on there. Man, like that's how wow, like he had stuff like like stuffthat wasn't listening to you know. I was into the motly crew atthe time and all that stuff like he just got me really into listening todifferent stuff, and it was great and thanks. My boy died. Nice yeah, no yeah. It's always good tohave like a friend that really you know, introduces you to new stuff and guesswhat Buck for all of our listeners out. There were your friends because we'retelling you all about this stuff so yeah, that's! That would be a good idea.We should get that a good idea, but that love lets go n yeah, but yeah, butlyrically speaking, I mean what are some of your thoughts on this song, thelyrics of this song. Yes, sir, I look at the lyrics right now and I feellike I want to talk to my daughter. You know it's like make sure you keep yourhair smiley washing every two weeks. What's every two weeks and and then andif you see your mom folding laundry to you as I for out, you don't ask her. Ifyou want that album dude tower, you want to fold the side.You want to fold it old. Don't even give me to Oh, my God, folding socks.Do you have a sock bin? That's all we have now. We just have one place. Weput socks, that's it for the for our kids. We do it's like a little pull outlike drawer. Think it's I in the draw it's like a little Bin, but each girlhas their own for their own socks. I wanted to do this. I said honey, let'sthrow all our socks. Let's get just get rid of them all, just in the garbageand this by all new socks, white and black. So when we get him out of thelaundry it's the same, damn thing: Well, it doesn't matter what you pairthem with it. Doesn't matter what you...

...pare to win, because you got rid ofevery sock you ever owned, and then you bought a thousand dollars worth ofsocks. I feel like Steve Jobs would be, wouldbe agreeable to that based on like how he would like dress himself every daythey were like the same shirt same pan. He would, he would have like multipleshirts, but it would be. The it was like is like the same black shirtperfect like like the same like pants, but obviously like different, likemultiple pairs, just the same stom. Everything is maybe there you go yourlike you like a little Steve. Jo Can't do digo socks that you know there. Ijust love them. You know that just can't find the other one. We just got abunch from Bombas, oh they're kind of expensive a little bit pricing, but thecool thing is right: when you buy a pair you, they don't need a pair tosomebody else, don't have suck so that was cool but yeah. I worn for the firsttime actually ter day and they are pretty freaking comfortable. So I'mpretty excited about that, but to solve purchase Gotcha to goback to the lyrethere's, not a man other than given the a bad advice to a teenager. I mean I'mthe head of the class, I'm popular, I'm a I'm quarterback and pop. I get it itjust it's! Well, so it's cool. So that was so that, though the chorusis actually the only. I guess, creative content that not a surf addedto the song, like all the verse. All of that was taken from that book. Oh myjust you know, yeah, just the you says on a heavy class and pipe form aquarterback like that was what they that was their addition to the song,but the song. It's like it's hilarious. I feel how I feel like, of course Ifeel like my favorite is and if you see Johnny football here in the hall tellyou played a great game. Tell me like this article in the newspaper. I lovethat it's so hilarious, it's so good football. But what e seriously, though, like whenyou're, if you're not well? For me I was a Nerd, so I was a popular ill dude.I was a nerd brow was I D. I was a nerd now you were not a nerd, but down. Ifyou knew me, I was a nerd. Well, we we we're PODCAST ING now soyeah I will say you are a nerd right t s, that's why that's what we do! That's what we do but, like you knowthe idea right. If you actually think about the ideas that are presented inthis right, you know you support a one month limit on going steady right, K. think about it. You knowbecause you're in high school, like you don't know, you don't know what you'redoing you know, but you get the you know. I mean obviously as long asyou're, not like sleeping around with everybody. You know, but at least ifyou're, like you, know, spending you know some quality time with a personfor like a month. They get the numb a little bit better nd. Then you can youknow, then you can be like hey. You know what at the end of the year, I youknow, I dated twelve girls and like that yeah and then next you know it'slike you know why, if you want it, if you want to do it again, the followingyear, you know you can or maybe there's like an opt out clause where you couldbe like you know what there was one of those twelve girls so kind of like thebachelor. In a way I like this one, the most I really feel like. I would liketo spend more time with her, so you...

...give her the final rose, and you knowyou like her because she was there for the right reasons and not bad. I don'tlike that everything everything they say about on a bachelor like the breakup in high school. Do ever become friends again. Is it just like? YesYeah? So I don't know, I don't think she listens, but you remember RachelYeah Yeah, so we was it we dated freshman year and we dated for like amonth. I'm like I enjoyed you what I was doing, I'm like. Oh, let me holdyour books for you. My friends would always give me shit because I wouldalways hold their books. I figured like this it that what guys were supposed todo. Apparently I read some manual from like one thousand nine hundred andfifty three. So apparently someone said you to hold the girl's books when youwalk around the hallways that a but then we hit a she. I like it that it'sjust you know looking back and like you know, if that was that was okay, so she dumped me over a letter andshe's like hopingly. We could be friends in, but we were kind of likecold for a little bit, but we also had like the same kind of group of friendsso maybe like the following year, maybelike two years later, maybe like junior year, we kind of were like over it, andwe were friends and we're still friends. Now I mean like we don't talk like allthe time, but you know we're still friends of recaree hang out. You knowwe always have fun so it can. It can happen, got you yeah. I didn't havemuch. I just kind of met my high school sweet hard, and that was it so you you completely opted out of theone month limit you're like I'm, just we're going to date for the rest of ourlives. It that's right. You know what it was butrout. At the end of the day I enjoyed my high school time. I played sportsnon. Stop I worried about my academics. I worried about having fun and thengirls, I love girls, don't get me wrong! It just like. I think at the in the time for the junioryear and the senior year going for the Prom, you just start, you know courtinga little bit and I in court really in junior year but see I courted and Iwanted to you know, have a girlfriend for my prom day and that's what I didand, and I made a good decision there- you go n see it all worked out exactlyso she didn't so, maybe maybe she was like. I don't want to make a floweryand emotional speech when you break the news and maybe he'll respect you foryour frankness. Yes, like that, unless he's a road,Jerker, a cry baby, but yeah yeah. Now this long I mean it's, I meanit's kind of like you know digging at this Jurdok this guide. Basically it's justkind of like a sarcastic look at this guide. You know and popularity andeverything that goes on in high school in general. So but I mean it's a coolsong. Ah I like it, I like it but all right buck. Let's listen Agin mehere. So what do you think popular by? Not As served do you think this song isa legit hit, or do you think it is a song gone wrong man, I'm usually like no black, I mean N, I'm never in thegray area right, I'm going with a song.

That's right. They just nailed it you're, just you're,just going with a song, I'm going to say it's not gone wrong. I think thatfor that time that was perfect for it. It was they had to get out of their way tomake this song have being different and they didn't. They really didn't thinkthis song was going to do anything right. They correct and all of a sudden-and someone heard it they're, like you, sucked your whole career and then youput this ship together and then all of a sudden you got a hit and I'm like andwere like. I bet they were like. Oh Shit. I don't even know this was goingto be PAP. We were. We were thinking that this song was going to be morepopular. You know like that's. I think this is what and then they're like aright make a video for this and then like al. They had no clue this wasgoing to be. This is going to be popular, so I haven't listened to it ina long fecking time, and I listened to it again. It made me like okay, this isthis is fine, so I'm going to give it a thumbs up where the cool all right- man,yeah yeah, I'm with I'm with you, one that Ithink the song is a legit it I mean, like I said back, then I wasn't reallythat into it, but I feel like it's. It definitely has grown on me and then Iappreciate the kind of sarcastic view it has on popularity and just like howthings are looked at in high school and plus they just kind of looked at thislike guide, you know just kind of like Shit, all over which is kind of funny,but but like the things that they pulled out of there were hilariousGreata, also like if the song get rocks man. You know I love when they get intothe kind of that distorted guitar those power cords. Over the I mean it's onlylike what two cords I think over the over the chorus, but it's also man,it's a cool little rock song. I think it's a legit hit awesome and then itgot me to listen to Matt, Massy Stars, faith to you and Oh, my God, that songand I ve it was the second. It was the second song that they suggested on youtube and I'm like love that song, but whatever due thatsong is first off it's a total panny dropper.Second of all, second of all that song, I mean how do you, how do you listen to thatsong and and not get like transported back? One thousand nine hundred andninety four monkeyess like it's that song? That's not that's not a song!That is magic! Yes, so it really is, I hope, Sandebago listen to that song toso. Maybe I have as in that I haven't heard that song in ten years dude. Hehope the singer hopes Sandobal her voice Ho such an amazing voice. Anyway. Okay, weshould do. We should do that song and then just like drool over that song.It's so good anyway, all right, so we both were bothin agreement here, but let's saw, let's see what the fans have to say aboutthis song. US nerds are together on...

...this. Let's see if in it said, there's anyother nerds out there, okay, so the fans of spoken- and Ohthis one, this one was pretty close. We've had a lot of close votes lately,fifty two percent- I mean it doesn't get much closer than that. But fiftytwo percent said this: Is a song gone wrong? Yeah I was. I did not see that coming.I thought people would have said this was a hit. I thought it would have beenclose. I didn't think it was going to be like that much of a nail biter and Ididn't think it was going to be a song gone wrong. I thought it would havebeen maybe like sixty forty legit hit, got it, butsuper closes. Both thou hit a lot of votes. So that's what we have we to get somefeedback, a good from an Irish Keith at Tis. My Self, you know said it's a goodsong. I had to jump on Soti to recall which song it was, though it reminds meof the song endless art by a House Guitar Guy at Ryan. The Rusky said thesong contains too much truth for some people to handle sure yeah. I agreeMalin's at Malinda Barnett said well, I forgot this song existed, so I guess itdidn't hold out too well. I did kind of like it back in a day, wouldn't changethe channel station, but I also wouldn't go so far as to pay money tolisten to it. Minister, society at Minis to society. One said I love thesong. The video too legit hit yeah. I agree that the video was pretty cool toand some Kendal at someting candles said. I used part of this song for asociology video I made. The verses are a bit annoying, but a D T e. The versesare basically just them an you're kind of reading from that book, but I kindof I like the versus too, though yeah. That's that's what we got right if Iwas doing a band, I know if I was doing a video, I would love to have you knowhigh school team, doing jumping jacks on the cheer leaders doing you knowthat I think that would be pretty cool at the Solton to a well has to be a bayon here. I guess they have relent, not student council. What's the the boardstudent, a school board they're like yeah, sure five thousand dollar, sixtous whatever it is. You know well think about it, though right, that'sinteresting, because right so who did? I say they had Maria Carry, they hadPearl Jam and- and these guys right now on paper, right rye carry's, like alegendary superstar pro jam, legendary Super Stars, but at that time that waspro jam's first album. So people were like kind of don't know who you are. Youguys were just called Muki Blaylock, not that long ago now your pral jamlike what's going on. Who are you guys, but they said yes to them and MarieCarey was a young pop singer back then you know what I mean, so it wasn't likeshe was established. None of them were established. So the fact that beon waslike hey guys come on over some one in the school board, no knew someone inthe record label. You know it's. Something happened like that. There'ssome kind of connection to have all those happen at one school that just Iwant. You know what I want. I want...
