Song of the Week


That means it's time for Song of the Week here in lovely Obsessive Compulsive land...

This week we are going to feature one of my favorite bands.

Barenaked Ladies

Yes, that's right. I said it. Loud and Proud. I'M A BNL FAN!!!

My uncle introduced me to this band years ago... before they were "the in thing" (were they ever the in thing? lol). I remember listening to the song "1,000,000 dollars" in the basement of the house in Riverdale, watching an adorable 5 year old dance around and sing to this song.

The first time I saw them in concert was the last concert at The Canyons. It was Ben Harper, Barenaked Ladies, and Blues Traveler. I was there with my sister, brother, and his girlfriend (who eventually became my sister-in-law). It was great. We had a lot of fun. Emalee and I driving up in her clunky old mustang. Those were the days. LOL.

The last concert of theirs I went to was here in Arizona. It was Me, Jenn, and Jeremy. Along with Jenny's Sisters, and Abers (a brother-in-law). It was AWSOME! us girls all wore matching shirts with something on the back. The front said "McDonald's Girl". The back of mine said "I Make It Easy". We even got to meet the band afterwards. We went to the back and waited in the December cold - *giggles* - for the band to come out to their busses. We had them sign things and our pictures taken with them. It was easily one of the best nights in my life.

The song I'm putting up this week is "Easy". I love this song. It has become one of my favorites that the band sings. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Barenaked Ladies

What’s a boy to do?
When you tell your tale and it never fails
I just end up feeling bad for you
With your hang-dog eyes
You can bring me down now I’m wrapped around your whole hand stop looking so surprised

Make it easy (easy)
Make it easy (easy)

I’ve been burned before
You’re not fooling me there’s no mystery you've forgotten what you’re hiding for
Call it self-defense
You can obfuscate and manipulate but it’s only at your own expense

Make it easy (easy)
Make it easy (easy)
Make it easy (easy)
Make it easy (easy)

Easy to be with you
Easy to obey
Easy to forgive you at the end of the day
East not to judge you
Easy to betray
Easy to adore you though you want to run away

It’s easy

Look what you have done
I can do the same two can play this game you’ll no longer be the only one

Make it easy (easy)
Make it easy (easy)
Make it easy (easy)
Easy (easy)

  1. I'm a BNL fan too! I went to one of their shows once. I think my mom had a heart attack when she asked where I was going. :) Good times. Better memories.
