Was listening to Radio Paradise and they played “Strange Boat” by the Waterboys – who never quite got the attention, at least in the US, that I think they deserved. Couldn’t find “Strange Boat,” but came across one of their few hit singles on YouTube. You know, there was a time when I actually liked some of the music that was considered “top 40.”
But that was a long, long time ago. Anyway, yeah, this song is a bit earnest, not nearly ironic enough compared to contemporary standards, but I like it a lot. Enjoy.
