Countdown to Pete Yorn’s ArrangingTime :: Day 4 of 11

We’ve made it to Day 4, and its a Friday, too. This time next week ArrangingTime will be out, my song-by-song review of it will be up, and hopefully many of you will have a copy of it to spin and enjoy. But, we still have a week to go, and more countdown fun to be had to keep us going.

I thought we’d do two things today. One, is gear up for the weekend with one of the tracks from ArrangingTime, Lost Weekend, which is a fantastic song and a stellar mini-movie of a music video, directed by Maria Innes Manchego. Its a coming-of-age story in the indie teen movie vein. A boy who deals with some assholes at school, takes his emotions out on his drums, and gets the girl in the end! So, let’s get ready for our own lost (or found) weekends first.

Then, to correspond with the Friday Music Theme of “The Name Game“, I will count down my Top 5 Pete Yorn songs with names in the song, or in the title. There’s a bunch to choose from, so this should be fun.

But before all that I want to remind you that if you haven’t pre-ordered the album yet, if you click here and are among the next 200 VINYL orders your album will be signed. There’s still time! And it is an AMAZING album – it really, really is. Go now go!!!

Lost Weekend
from the upcoming album, ArrangingTime

“Straight out of the dressing room,
I wear my new clothes –
fall down thinking about you.”

Check-out Pete Yorn’s annotations to the lyrics to Lost Weekend here. Click on the green highlights and see what he has to say about the song, and the lyrics – a very interesting read.

My Top 5 Name Songs:

5. Velcro Shoes
from the album, PY

“It’s time for lunch so what’s to eat?
PB and J cut up in squares of four,
a glass of milk for little Pete,
he’s such a good boy let him have some more.”

4. Carlos (Don’t Let it Go to Your Head)
from the album, Day I Forgot

“And when you’re with yourself,
oh don’t let it go to your head.”

3. Closet
from the album, musicforthemorningafter

“So Billie I lost control,
I’m trying to meet you.”

2. Murray

“He’s talking out of the left side of his mouth.”

1. For Nancy (‘Cos it Already Is)
from the album, musicforthemorningafter

      1. Oh also, I want you to know that I’m not pre-ordering the vinyl or anything (and my record player has croaked sadly anyway) but I fully intend to buy this new album so that sale is on you.
