Rocking For The Weekend: Tinted Windows

Today I bring you "Kind Of A Girl" by Tinted Windows. The band is a power pop supergroup made up of Taylor Hanson (Hanson), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), and Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick).

Adam Schlesinger is one of the best pop/rock songwriters of the last 20 years, and this is right up there with his best. If you don't hear this song and want to pull off your tie and run out the door into the Friday sunshine, I don't want to know you.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

As a big fan of Fountains Of Wayne, I thank you for the heads up.

I saw them live. So, nyah.

Unfortunately, I neither got to tell Adam Schlesinger that he's brilliant nor molest Taylor Hanson.

What's weird, and am I wrong here? But what's weird is you can really hear each member's influence. Right?

Red: They are. Well, except Isaac the scrotum face.

SG: You're welcome! I love spreading the music gospel.

BeckEye: Ladies don't brag. But you do.

Steamy: You're right. And for the first time I know what it sounds like when James Iha plays guitar. He's drowned out by Baldy on every Pumpkins record.

How does a grown-ass man have the name "Bun"?
