The first thing you learn in college is freshman girls aren't seriously interested in you. They might pretend to be, for a brief moment in time, but in reality they have an entire campusful of young fellows to choose from. If you expect any of these ladies to stick around for more than a week, it takes a rare combination of charisma and perfectly gelled hair.
This complicated song and dance routine is the subject of our latest installment of Behind the Music. Today's featured track is called, appropriately, One Week Relationships. Take a listen:
One Week Relationships by Dan Lurie
Well, the message in this song is pretty clear I think: One week relationships are fun until the week is up. And once the week is up you go back to your room and listen to sad Elliott Smith albums. It's part of the circle of life.
Notable players on this track include Vanessa Rehder handling the backing vocals and mini organ, and Daniel Dominic Mancini laying down the junk percussion. I'd also like to give special thanks to the whammy bar.
Reminder: Spirit of '98 (my solo album about Athens, OH) will be available right here January 18, 2011. Thanks for listening!
