She's Coming (Over Tonight)

This video is from a November '98 show at Seattle's RKCNDY, via Amy Yambor who used to work there and who handed me a DVD transfer of it when we played NYC a couple weeks ago. Pretty good set, pretty fun show. I'll probably post more of it, and maybe even the whole shebang eventually, but in furtherance of the unofficial song-commentary thing I've been doing, I thought I'd start here.

Silly though it may be, I've always considered this to be one of my best, most effective songs. Unlike many of the tunes on the Revenge Is Sweet... album the recording came out pretty much as I'd intended. An assistant engineer at the session commented that it was the most hard rockin' bubblegum she'd ever heard, and while I've probably heard of things that'd have made her head spin I took that as a great sign. It was what was intended. And the song does exactly what it's supposed to do.

The bridge "everyone makes fun of me / they do it right in front of me / they don't think someone shy like me / could get a girl like that to like a guy like me" is one of my favorite lines I ever came up with.

Posted to my dumb little youtube channel. Head over there and subscribe -- I plan on posting a lot more stuff in future. Cheers.
