I’ve been on a Camper Van Beethoven kick lately, especially the Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart and Key Lime Pie albums.

The last song on Sweetheart, “Life Is Grand”, opens with the following lyrics: “And life is grand, and I will say this at the risk of falling from favor with those of you who have appointed yourselves to expect us to say something darker.”

I think they really upped the ante with “Come On Darkness”…
