Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Maureen”

Fountains of Wayne – Sade

A little over five years ago I posted a week of songs that were female names. I featured a Nick Lowe song called “Maureen” – but he was far from the only one to sing the praises of Maureen.

If you don’t listen to Fountains of Wayne, I can only ask, WHY NOT? This tune is insanely catchy. From their collection of B-sides, Out-of-State Plates.

You were a souped up car in that rent-a-go-cart town

When this uptempo number from 1985’s Promise starts up, I almost expect Al Jarreau to start singing “Morning, Mr, Radio”. It is similar to the song from two days ago.
