what's that dog

I know who that dog song is about but I'll never tell (though it isn't too difficult to figure out)

I don't know any of these other songs and have never been to Minneapolis. I sure like "Skyway" by the Replacements, though.

These are the only five songs we listen to here.

Well, the big clue is the reference in the song to the band Low. And it isn't a member of Low. So, someone who has worked for Low who has worked in a similar capacity for other high profile bands and may or may not run a really excellent distro specializing in avant garde, drone, noise, free jazz, and weird synth pop. That's all you're getting outta me!

Personally, I'd be stoked if someone wrote a song like that about me. From what I understand though, said subject is not thrilled with this particular claim to fame, hence my (admittedly terrible) attempt to not gossip about it.

I'm pretty sure the the Randy referred to in the song is the long time Entry sound guy/lftr pllr tech

None hold a candle to Janet yelling "Minneapolis" in "Escapade."

Are there any songs about St. Paul?

kornrulez6969, Friday, 18 May 2018 21:28 (four months ago) Permalink

probably not

geoffreyess, Friday, 18 May 2018 21:29 (four months ago) Permalink

The only ones I can think of are by indie bands from the area, which hardly counts.

Damnit I wanna know who Anna is singing about. I was so in love with that LP, and Totally Crushed Out is in my top 20 all time

Always want to think Randy is the same guy as in Randy and the Metrosquad. And now the same guy as in Ottessa Moshfegh’s Eileen.

Johnny Cash, Big River: "I met her accidentally in St. Paul, Minnesota"
