Song of the Week 12/15/06

The Hold Steady - "First Night"

As I came down to the wire on the 17th edition of the list, I started spinning the top five albums over and over so I could get into the right frame of mind for writing. I listened to Boys And Girls in America on Sunday, and Monday morning woke up with the gorgeous ballad "First Night" in my head. Just as I was about to hop into the shower, WFUV played "First Night." I was stunned, as I haven't heard them play anything off the album with regularity. It set me off on a good start to the day--and made me pick "First Night" as the best track on the album when I finally did write an entry on Boys And Girls in America.
