Song of the Day: 'Tell Your Sister' by Lloyd Cole

Bet you'll be shocked to see me blogging about missing music from the "good old days." But I do have to laugh at myself -- 30 years(!) later -- for actually thinking music was starting to suck in the early '90s, something this Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart dated Jan. 4, 1992, makes abundantly clear couldn't have been further from the truth.

If U2, Nirvana, Enya, Talking Heads, INXS, Ian McCulloch (Echo gone solo!), Pixies, Siouxsie & the Banshees and Kate Bush weren't enough, how about a Lloyd Cole sans Commotions single?!!!

Description: "Don't Get Weird on Me Babe" is the second solo album by the English musician Lloyd Cole, released in 1991. The title comes from a Raymond Carver expression. Unlike the original release, the American version of the album leads with the "rock" half and ends with the orchestral songs. The album peaked at No. 40 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart. It peaked at No. 21 on the U.K. Albums Chart. Cole promoted the album by touring with Robert Forster and Grant McLennan.

"Weeping Wine" might even be better. Watch HERE.

What a mood swing it must have been if Caribbean Blue was played right after Suck My Kiss.
