Well, the rainy season is here and I’m settling in with my books and some good music in the air conditioned house for the long summer. Last night I started reading “Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer. I was reading in the recliner in the study and had Pandora Radio playing on the computer and along cam 10,000 Maniacs through the speakers. I remembered I had a few of their cd’s on my iTunes so I started to listen to those instead. The sound of the music and Natalie Merchant’s voice seemed very appropriate background music to “Twilight”. This song, “Few and Far Between” is my new favorite 10,000 Maniacs song this weekend. It’s so upbeat and the horns sound so rich behind Natalie’s strong and vibrant vocals.
