Mike Doughty – I Just Want the Girl in the Blue Dress to Keep on Dancing

Mike Doughty’s newest album Sad Man Happy Man came out a couple of weeks ago to not much hoopla – and that’s probably somewhat deserved.  Mr. Doughty has made a successful solo career of releasing pretty much the same album every 18 months or so.  (For example, I sang “Busting Up a Starbucks” with the same inflection over 2 or 3 of the songs on his new album.)  That’s not a bad thing since he seems to be making it work, but every once in a while he really hits it.  (In fact, one of his tracks has made it to my 1000 Minutes list.)  Beyond that personal favorite, there’s this one – the lengthily titled lead single from Golden Delicious – where, in my opinion, he nailed it again.

    Great song. I always get a nice feeling when I hear “What is this happiness?/ It was not ever thus”
