Neil Cleary rules.

Not only does he have the mad grammar skills to call me out on this here blog for my (extremely rare) vocab gaffes, he's also one of the most all-around talented musician/songwriters out there.

This morning, I finally listened to Neil's new effort, I Was Thinking About You the Whole Time, all the way through. What a saucy little record! It's something of a "concept piece," from the perspective of a partially repentant Lothario who drags around a sack o' broken lady hearts. It could be the most narcissistic thing I've ever heard outside of hip-hop. But it totally works.

And hey, you gotta write what you know. Kidding. I hope.

Here's a cut from the disc, which is currently being "shopped around," as we say in the biz:

Neil Cleary — "The Go-Ahead Girl"

What a fine opening track. Neil, feel free to sue me for posting this MP3.

Speaking of new music from self-absorbed neurotics, I have a tune that I've been dicking around on lately. I'll put it up later tonight.
