Been Stuck in My Head for Months

Pandora understands the excellence of minor-key pop songs with prominent jangly guitars, vocal harmony, melancholy lyrics and upbeat tempo and so played Modest Mouse’s “Missed the Boat” for me in March. Haven’t gotten the song out of my head since then.

I love the plaintive first verse: “Looking toward the future / We were begging for the past / Well, we know we had the good things / But those never seem to last / Oh please just last.”
