A few years ago, I heard a song while walking through the mall. It was a song from the late 70's I guessed and I had heard it before, but I didn't know who it was, and I didn't know any lyrics to help me find it. I had looked through my Billboard book of Top 40 hits with no luck. I had not heard it on the 70's channel on Music Choice either. One day a couple weeks ago, I stumble across it on iTunes on a list of songs from 1977. The song was "Isn't It Time" by The Babys, a group that had John Waite as the singer. This was one of 40 songs I got from iTunes a week after my last bunch of songs. Here are the rest.
PJ Harvey - "Bows & Arrows", "The Falling" and "The Phone Song" all B-Sides to "The Letter" single.
Sleater-Kinney - "By the Time You're Twenty Five" and "Tapping" from the "Get Up" single.
A few miscellaneous tunes
Jewel - Who Will Save Your Soul

I was a good distance runner in high school and college, and my Dad had a boat called "Raider", so maybe that Frank Black album is about me and my Dad!
I had heard the Kingsbury Manx song "New Old Friend Blues" back in 2002 while listening to Indie Pop Rocks on somafm.com.
I heard the Laura Veirs song "Galaxies" on the college station one day earlier this year.
