Music Monday: Weekenders by The Hold Steady

Special thanks to Jason Buckley for this week's Music Monday choice. Last week, during a BlogExplosion Battle of the Blogs, Jason made the following music recommendation for Roxy and was dead on:

"As you are a Springsteen fan and a lover of lyrics, I implore you to check out The Hold Steady. Seriously. Besides a few scattered references to the Boss in some their lyrics, their songs tell stories and have much of the same feel, though a bit updated." So today I'd like to share with all of my Jersey Shore and Music Monday visitors, a brand new video from The Hold Steady Live at the Bowery Ballroom on April 17th, 2010...




There was that whole weird thing with the horses
I think they know exactly what happened
I don't think it needs any explaining
I'm pretty sure I wasn't your first choice
I think I was the last one remaining
I wish we hadn't gone and destroyed it
Cause I was thinking we could pull another weekender
You've still got a bit of clairvoyance

I remember the metal bar
I remember the reservoir
You could say our paths had crossed before

So if it has to be a secret
Then I guess that I can deal with it
you and I both know it's a negative thing
In the end only the girls know the whole truth

There were a couple pretty crass propositions
There were some bugs in the bars
There was a kid camped out by the coat check
She said the theme of this party's the industrial age
And you came in dressed like a train wreck

I remember the O.T.B
The five-second delivery
You could say our paths have crossed before

So if it has to be a secret
Then I guess that I can deal with it
God only knows it's not always a positive thing
To see a few seconds into the future

And if you swear to keep it decent
Then yeah I'll come and see you
but it's not gonna be like in romantic comedies
In the end I bet no one learns a lesson
