“Flaws” was where I left off on last night’s commute. It very naturally led into “Hyperballad,” which is all about a man’s flaws. But it’s about a man’s flaws in that Dulli way of talking about his protagonist’s masculinity, which brought “Mr. Superlove” to mind. “Mr. Superlove” always reminds me of Maugham for some reason; it just seems like it takes place in the East Indies or something. Of course, two Dulli masculinity songs is about enough and “Falling” proved a nice palate cleanser. I probably haven’t listened to “Falling” since the last time I listened to the “Twin Peaks” soundtrack in 1993 or whatever but it was “background” in a recent Love and Rockets I read so it was in mind. Not entirely sure how I got to “It’s OK (It’s Alright)” from “Falling,” but I did. The Raw & the Cooked is such an underappreciated album. Fine Young Cannibals are underappreciated in general, but Raw & the Cooked particularly. From it, “Good Grief,” which is kind of like a late eighties song (or at least brings late eighties music video to mind), was a natural next. “Walking on Broken Glass” because some of “Good Grief”’s music reminds of it. “17 Again” because I wanted to listen to more Annie Lennox and Apple Music finally has a decent copy of Peace (it had errors on the old iTunes Match copy). “17 Again” is, emotionally, a lot, and somehow I got to “Don’t Dream It’s Over” from there, mental connection-wise. The Toni Collette cover from Cosi, of course, which isn’t as good as I remember. The guitar solo didn’t need to be there and she has some trouble getting out the jumbly lyrics, but the main parts are still all right. A mostly eighties mix of songs? Not really. It just seems like it’s a mostly eighties mix.
