Music Monday: The King of Carrot Flowers Part 1

This is just one of my favorite songs of all time, by Neutral Milk Hotel:




It makes me nostalgic for the 1980's.

Nostalgia just isn't what it used to be, is it? I used to have to find the CD to play it to feel nostalgic for the eighties. Now I just look up the youtube video! I don't even get to feel the frustration of finally finding the CD after a ten minute search, only to discover that the CD isn't inside- it's Johnny Cash's greatest hits, instead- and then I find Johnny Cash's greatest hits, and it's not Neutral Milk Hotel, either, it's the Dead Milkmen, so then I would find the Dead Milkmen... well, you get the idea. I used to have this problem with misreplacing CD's into the wrong cases while driving, because I refused to look away from the road. And that used to be such a problem! But now, everything is downloaded, and... actually, you know what? It's better now.
