Song of the Week: “Beatrice’s Boyfriend”

from Beach Toys Won’t Save You (2003)

I realize I should rename this feature Song of the Whenever I Feel Like It, but I’ve been too busy scrambling for money and threatening to leave the business (again) to be concerned with things like consistency. Anyway, after a fairly Holly Jolly Memorial Day we’re finally getting some seasonal weather in NYC, so I thought I’d share this oldie. Hard to believe I was recording this CD ten years ago, and harder still to imagine that it was already a song from the vaults then; I actually wrote it in 1985!!! In crayon. So break out the sunscreen, and enjoy this twisted little tale of insecurity and probably murder. Happy summer!
