On the way home yesterday I was listening to NPR and the Summer Song Favorites segment featured the lead singer of the Counting Crows talking about "Save It For Later" by the English Beat. I actually got teary-eyed because this was one of my favorite songs of my adolescence. I wore out the cassette playing "Save It For Later" over and over. I saw General Public in concert (with clynne?) but it wasn't the same.
And then Pete Townsend did a spare and melancholy cover version.
