I came to on a corner with some help from a man

I consider myself pretty music-savvy. If a band or artist that I love is recording a new album, I usually know about it. So imagine my surprise when I came across this today:

A new Cardigans album that I knew nothing about. Interesting.

Sure, "Lovefool" remains their most popular song. And yeah, their last CD Long Gone Before Daylight wasn't released in the U.S. until a full year after it came out in Europe. But I swear, this band still makes some amazing music. The new single is called "I Need Some Fine Wine and You, You Need to be Nicer," but this is my favorite song from the last CD, "Live and Learn."

Live and Learn - The Cardigans (you'll need iTunes)

I hate Lovefool, and since it was the only song of theirs I was familiar with, I was convinced for a long time that the Cardigans were a terrible band. Later, I heard some of their other stuff and enjoyed it, but God, that song fucking sucks.

Yeah, I agree with Limey. "Lovefool" blows. I remember working in the Edward Jones mail room when that song was big and the lady next me would say (each time the song played on the radio), "She sound high."

I know, it's a truly annoying song, and the fact that it's still played on Y98 and in grocery stores and bank lobbies isn't helping.

Their last two CDs are totally different sounding, I swear! Worth checking out.

If that Elphaba thing actually comes to pass, please tell me that somebody will be taking pictures! That should really be preserved for posterity. And me.

Oh, that Elphaba thing is happening all right. And there will be plenty of pictures. Between all the bloggers in our town that will be there, I'm sure there will be plenty of photo evidence.

You'll want to check back here on Sunday. Also, the following blogs might have pictures and/or comments:

And it's possible there could be some up Saturday night, if the live-blog thing goes off without a hitch.

Yeah, but WHEN is it coming out?

I think it comes out on October 24 or 21 (only overseas though, we'll have to order it on amazon or something).
