In Love With That Song

Talent Show

By 12.Sep.07No Comments

Today, Talent Show is my favorite song. Now I Wonder, A Star Is Bored, Can’t Hardly Wait, Love Untold, Sixteen Blue, Androgynous, Within Your Reach along with many others could easily take its place on any other day though. One of the reasons I like TS so much is the many ad-libs done in this song during live performances — from the “we won’t say nothing bad on TV”, “don’t look like Jah Wabble”, Send in the Clowns, Chuck Berry riffs to the “leave him alone you fuckhead” it just seems like they (Mats and post-Mats) always had fun with it — I know I do with all versions. Plus it includes a bit of another one of my favorite songs — Portland.
