Sometimes music falls out of your life and then you are reminded of it all over again. That’s what recently happened to me with regards to Soul Coughing’s Janine. Until recently, it hasn’t been in the Tot Rock rotation. It’s great to be reminded of the music of your past; and it’s an especially great song that transcends memories and become something new to you.
Anyway, Janine by Soul Coughing is the precious Tot Rocker #22:
Mike Doughty has a great way of making a gal wish he was singing about her. I mean isn’t the line, “if you were the baltic sea and I were a cup” just about the most gorgeous thing that has ever been said?
Kind: Sleepy Baby
Requirements: Janine is a snap for a sing-along, and it can be personalized to fit your fancy, “Etta, I drink you up”. And all importantly, it’s a great song.
