Bux and I had this conversation back in December 2021. We talk about Fountains Of Wayne, the brilliant self-titled debut album from one of our favorite bands. We talk about how these songs make us feel. We talk about the twinge of melancholy lurking just beneath the surface in insanely catchy power pop.
Adam Schlesinger, one of the two songwriters in Fountains Of Wayne, died two years ago today, on April 1, 2020. (This was early in the COVID-19 pandemic, and sadly, millions of people have since died from this illness globally, and that's something I wish to acknowledge and not minimize.)
