Random Songs I Like #4: Mayor of Simpleton

For this series, I will be posting a new song every week from every imaginable style and genre.  The only criteria is that I need to like it!

This week’s #RandomSongsILike is a favorite B-side from the British rock band XTC.  I lovelovelovelovelove them and their brilliant songs!  I was reminded of this one when working on math with my son (I’m terrible at it).

“Well I don’t know how many pounds make up a ton of all the Nobel Prizes that I’ve never won, and I may be the Mayor of Simpleton, But I know one things and that’s I love you”

Random Songs I Like #1 – You Get What You Give

Here is the first installment of my #RandomSongsILike project, where I will post a video of myself performing every week in 2021.  I outlined my plan for this in my recent blog post Resparking the Creative in 2021: An Invitation.

At the start of the pandemic, this song played over and over in my head.  This song was a radio staple of the late 1990s and I have no idea how it popped back into my consciousness.  “Don’t give up.  Don’t let go.”  Gorgeous song!
