she's a maniac

"far and few between" by the 10,000 maniacs just came up on the itunes shuffle and i totally went bananas. as the first seconds of the horn intro played, i was like, hey, what's this? and then i remembered it was the 10,000 maniacs and i got a little embarassed. but they were one of my favorite bands in high school. anyway, i used to think natalie merchant was super cool despite that dumb affected accent of hers. what was i thinking? she's such a looney. i was watching an old episode of saturday night live where the maniacs were the musical guests and merchant's dancing was insanity. it was like watching a car wreck, but it had me in stitches. oh natalie.

this just reminded me of the 10k maniacs performance with michael stipe at some sort of clinton inaugural ball in 1993... lo and behold, youtube comes through. i think i actually own a single with this performance on it...
