Cecilia and the Satellite
Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness
I know this song was pretty much all over the place for the past year, so I’m late to the party on this one. The album came out last year. I was trying to avoid it because honestly, I am kind of over Andrew McMahon. He was the lead singer in Something Corporate, and also tried again with a band called Jack’s Mannequin. I liked both of those, but they usually just had a few hits and then disappeared. Like, stick it out with one band already, Andrew. Geez. So when I first heard this song, I didn’t even have to look up the artist to know it was him – and I figured it wasn’t something that could be credited to either Something Corporate or Jack’s Mannequin and was likely something new. I was right – now he’s a solo act. Maybe that will work out better for him. I was still not sold on this tune. Then somehow it got stuck in my head, which lead to me downloading the album, and liking this song. I don’t actually like the rest of the album (at least, not yet) – I gave it a listen on my way up to Hartford this weekend. I love the lyrics in this song, but I think the rest of the album is kind of cheesy (couldn’t think of a better way to describe it).
“I’ve been knocked down, I got up again…”
