Song of the Day
The Puppini Sisters’ “Jilted.” NPR:
A bassist plucks the big fiddle’s strings and makes them moan. Drumsticks tap out a languid beat. Then a sad woman begins her story of woe: “I bought another dinner for one / I sit and watch some pointless rerun…” Two other singers join her to lament their fate: “Jilted… again.” They’d even sat through football games to keep him! Now, the jiltees are engaging in classic self-destructive behavior, from “drinking gin” to “talking to the cat.”
The Rise & Fall of Ruby Woo is a fun album to listen to.
