I’ll admit that I’m not sure what the current popular opinion of Kings of Leon truly is: are they still liked? Or did everyone eventually turn on them after being unable to escape the dual radio assault of “Sex on Fire” and “Use Somebody” for the last four million years? Perhaps I’d be more aware if I weren’t a shut-in who spent much of the last year listening to Bing Crosby. Damn my old soul….
I’m sitting here doing nothing any more productive than listening to a podcasted edition of the Ray Foley Show from a week and a half ago, so I may as well occupy my weary fingers with this thing: writing about one of my favourite singers. Relevantly, that singer is the charming chirpy chanteuse Amber Rubarth, and she’s just released a cover of R.E.M’s “Losing My Religion”. It’s rather spiffing.
