Song of the Day – “Someone to Love” – Fountains of Wayne

Tasty power pop from 2007’s Traffic and Weather.

The lyrics are an “Eleanor Rigby” for the new millennium:

Beth McKenzie got the job of her dreams
Retouching photos for a magazine aimed at teens
It’s Thursday night she should be out on the scene
But she’s sitting at home watching “The King of Queens”

There’s something wrong that she can’t describe
She takes the contacts out of her eyes
Sets the alarm for 6:45
So she can get a little exercise

When it’s late, and it’s hot
And an hour in the shower is the best that you’ve got
Don’t give out, don’t give up
One of these nights you might find someone to love
