Wicked Wisdom- Of Montreal

This is what I look like singing in the car :) just kidding, im not this bad. To be honest, I can watch like a minute of this video and then I have to let it play and go do something else because it starts to get to dude..this dude is crazy! Sorry this video is totally lame.
So I was kinda disappointed by the new Of Montreal cd, as most of us were, but there are a few on the beginning of the cd that I like and this is one of them. PS why is this cd so blatantly sexual? I feel like Im listening to the soundtrack to a space-age porno.

The songs that I love by Of Montreal always have certain lines that stick out and make me crave the songs at the most inopportune times. For this song it is these lines:

My goat, my crab, my scorpion
You're my icons 'cause your different
You're different

And of course

When we get together
It's always hot magic

I find myself singing that at the weirdest time...under my breath, of course, im no green bean

Also! Even though this isn't my favorite song I love this video for An Eulardian Instance. It is growing on me though, the song that is.

I was really bummed about the new album too and like you, i kept getting parts of it stuck in my head. I kept listening for those parts and then i started to see the beauty in the other parts. (I heard there are over 100 song parts in the album) Then i started to really dig the album since it felt like an inside joke. All those dramatics are a way of hiding the really good stuff, in my opinion.

yeah i can agree with that. Even though I dont love this album like i do Hissing Fauna I cant seem to stop listening to it, so it must not be all that bad if I keep coming back to it

I've only listened to it a couple times through and wasn't at all disappointed.

Hissing Fauna is still better. But I'm totally biased and hooked. I drank the hissing fauna kool-aid.

I like the idea of the in jokes though...
