it seems that today is starting off slowly, but that's okay. for once, it's not a bad day. yeah, some plans were canceled, but that's okay too. tomorrow is the the start of my weekend full of awesome events and i can't help but be super excited about it all. but for now, let's get through this day.

a little bit of a lazy feeling makes me want to listen to some, XTC.

forming in 1976 and breaking up in 2005, XTC were one of the best critically praised nu-wave bands during those formative years. they hail from swindon, england which was home to that other branch who closed down and got inter mixed with the office park in slough, berkshire at wernham hogg paper company... (watch the bbc version of the office ya chumps!!!)

anyway, XTC were not huge selling artists, but that doesn't mean the quality of their music pails. they seemed to top themselves with every album and are often mentioned when asked about the nu-wave genre. today you will find their album, Skylarking. this is what many consider to be their best work and it's my personal favorite. enjoy!!!

Laying on the grass my heart it flares like fire
The way you slap my face just fills me with desire
You play hard to get
'Cause you're teacher's pet
But when the boats have gone
We'll take a tumble excuse for a fumble
Shocked me too the things we used to do on grass
If you fancy we can buy an ice-cream cone
Your mate has gone She didn't want to be alone
I will pounce on you
Just us and the Cuckoos
You are helpless now
Over and over we flatten the clover
Shocked me too the things we used to do on grass
It would shock you too the things we used to do on grass
Grass, grass.
Things we did on grass
