As Hollywood has recently discovered, everyone has an origin story. Here is mine. This blog is about my music obsessions, which change from week to week – sometimes from day to day. I’ve named the blog Mezz’s musings for my sometime screen name Mezz98. I took that name from Mezzanine, the third Massive Attack album, which was released in 1998. It’s one of the best albums you’ll ever hear by any artist.
Now that that’s out of the way, my current musical obsession (as in, just started today) is the song “Wonderful You”by the Dandy Warhols. It comes from their excellent 2003 album Welcome to the Monkey House. I can’t really pinpoint what it is I love about the song (is it the driving beat? the wailing sound effects that pierce the chorus?) Whatever it is, I’m up to 20 plays on of it on my iTunes.
