At First I Thought It Was Simon

Well this ain't exactly cutting edge and if we are honest we could have heard something like this when Paul Simon headed to South Africa to infuse some African beats to his folk leanings, but Vampire Weekend are just class. Any band that has a song about pedantic English punctuation deserve some respect and with a look so geeky it comes with a PhD, it doesn't appear possible that this band should be so successful in today's musical wasteland. Clever lyrics, catchy beats and summer tunes, it's all good and I haven't tired of it yet even though the album is already a year old. It's feel good central. Enough of random praise being thrown their way, this is the top track off the album (end of story) Kids Don't Stand A Chance.

Conan O'Brien is my part-time lover.

Another great add to my playlist! Freakin' quirky! Totally Carla.

Hey Carla, its a great song, but could you fill me in on what the lyrics actually mean!!!

I'm struggling big time....

Struggling in choosing a career...maybe? There is enormous pressure to take jobs in finance, symbolized by the men of morning. They dangle millions in front of kids, who don't stand a chance but to take it.

Don't know...tough one!

Ahh... now that makes sense! I was never one for imagination.

As a result I'm not a songwriter
