Neil Cleary rules.

Posted By on Thu, Mar 15, 2007 at 11:04 AM

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.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
