    Ah, see, Vanessa Carlton was rather big here (and had some following in the UK, iirc), though she has a lot more depth to her canon than the poppy stuff that made it onto the radio. White Houses didn’t–it’s a great song but I think it was restricted from airplay and MTV because it’s a fairly frank story about losing one’s virginity.

    Of course, I’m a bit keen on it also because Lindsey Buckingham plays background guitar on said track…

    Sorry to shout, but that made me laugh!

    I was a big fan of a band called Ezra in the mid-1990s, and this trick definitely helped me find a band I liked better.

    Bene, I rather enjoyed the video where she’s dancing as well – nice wirework.

    Lalaroo, in certain cases shouting is just irresistible.

    Angus, so what’s the new band’s name?

    Watching the rest of that episode, I have to say ‘They’re like the Mod Squad, except their enemies are taxes and gays’ is a fantastic quote.

    I was waiting for something along the lines of “the last time Americans saw an Indian that wooden, he was standing outside a tobacconists”…

    And of course now his big narrative about ‘bureaucracy is BAD, mmkay?” has been shown to be a lie. And even if it were true it would have been Bush’s FEMA under “Heckuvajob” Brownie that was at fault.

    Of course, way too many voters will just believe that no-one could ever lie like that on national television.
