Song of the Week 5/29/09

Neko Case - "People Got a Lot of Nerve"

Between WFUV and Starbucks, I could not escape this song. I heard it four out of five mornings this week--and I didn't even need a dentist to tell it was playing four out of five days. I have always thought of Case as a great singer of other people's material (i.e. everything she's sung in New Pornographers). But I've never been a fan of her own originals until "Nerve." The way she sings "I'm a mana mana mana mana maneater" makes me think she has a tiny bit of experience in that department.
