SeanM Lyr Req: Violent Femmes TEN (5) RE: Lyr Req: Violent Femmes TEN 06 Nov 03

Is it the one that has the "ten, ten, ten, ten for everything everything everything" in it?

If so, that one's called "Kiss Off". Not sure where to get a sound file, but it's on their first album, titled "Violent Femmes"

Interesting band. Very folk roots - most of their work is structured around acoustic guitar, acoustic bass and brushed snare. Second album includes two gospel numbers - "It's Gonna Rain" and "Jesus Walking on the Water". The lead singer's the son of a Baptist minister, and is apparently fairly devoutly Christian. In other areas, they've gone so far as well as to set 15th century poetry to music.

I'm rather fond of them, if'n you can't tell :^) I'm fairly impressed with the fact that coming on 20 years after the release of their first album, it still strikes a chord of adolescent angst among the kids hearing it for the first time as well as still remains somewhat relevant to the original fans who heard it on vinyl.
