In the bathroom with Barenaked Ladies

I came across this series of videos from Barenaked Ladies tonight titled "The Bathroom Sessions," while wasting some time on Youtube. Without dwelling on the current state of BNL, I would like to share a couple of my favorites from the series.

The first one, "Adrift," came along at a time when I was wondering if BNL might be creatively out of gas. And as music often does, this tune came my way at a time that I really needed something like it to spin, over and over, to take my mind off of everything else.

"Am I The Only One," comes off of the band's second album, Maybe You Should Drive. For those that bashed the early goofiness of the band, I often used a track like this one, to show the lyrical depth hiding behind the silliness.

Song #3, and you might be asking me - "Hey Matt, what about all of those great songs that Steven Page wrote for BNL?" I'll get one of those in there for sure, but I just happened to see three of my favorite Ed Robertson BNL songs right off of the bat. And since I started out as not-so-much of a fan of the Ed stuff, I have to give him kudos for the songwriting development that eventually helped him work his way into my good graces. Honestly, it didn't take long.

Dammit. Sorry, I have to share one more Ed tune. Another one from Maybe You Should Drive. And maybe you should own this album.

Okay, now that you've all been patient - here's some Steven Page BNL for ya - it's not one of my favorites, but from looking at the complete collection of videos, it looks like Steven didn't get into the Bathroom Sessions concept quite as much as Ed did.

I'll leave you with this one.

    I came across these last year, and found the “If I Had $1000000” rather telling…
    Also, I’ve always loved “Some Fantastic”, and of course went for this one first. 

    Classy, Steve. Tres classy.
