Album: Dead Man’s Pop
. . .
You’re life’s a joke so tell me, ain’t it?
Sometimes a live version of a song that you’re lukewarm on can reveal its hidden treasures.
On Don’t Tell a Soul, “Anywhere’s Better Than Here” was a weird beast, a song with a great beginning — that scream! — and a great ending, but not a whole lot in between, as it lurched around without ever settling down.
Maybe that was the mix, maybe it was the performance, as even the Dead Man’s Pop version failed to revive it for me.
