Shaggs-Philosophy Of The World

July 14th, 2014

Philosophy of the World

I’m resisting the urge to actually say anything about this at all except that I’ve listened to it a lot over the years for (seemingly) no good reason.

You’d think that in the present “anyone can make an album” era we’d hear more music like this. The fact that we don’t is probably important and I’ve promised myself to add it to the things I wonder.

Not today, though.

Who Are Parents
My Pal Foot Foot
My Companion
I’m So Happy When You’re Near
