Fountains Of Wayne - Fire In The Canyon

“An eerie kind of sadness of the highway today” the narrator says in this upbeat kick up my heels and yodel song. A concept album on traveling, probably best listened to while driving. People living in the moments described may not be amused, but I had a great time listening. Those very few times I’ve traveled by air are remembered by Fountains of Wayne very well, as well as the driving song we’re listening to today. “Was it driving together that drove us apart, or did we change directions?” Little slices of real life with real people. “Lead us to be born into a path straight and narrow on every crooked road we travel down.” Shoutout for the completely different mood set for Michael And Heather At The Baggage Claim.
