Oh, and while I'm thinking of it, the new Fountains of Wayne album "Welcome Interstate Managers" is the best pure pop album I've heard in a long, long time. Have a listen to the samples on their website, and then run out and buy the rest of it. It makes other "pop" music sound like the soul-sucking, intelligence-insulting, death rattle that it truly is.

Not only is the music catchy without being mind-numbing, it has absolutely marvelous lyrics. (You can get a flavor from the titles of the songs, like the tune about slow service called "Halley's Waitress" and "Bright Future In Sales"). And if there is any justice in the world,* the song "Stacy's Mom" should become the guilty pleasure of the summer.

*There isn't.
