Rah Rah “The Poet’s Dead”
The music itself combines male and female vocals, much like their earlier music, and also has that sound of They Might Be Giants or Pink Floyd, but the real story here isn’t the music (No matter how great it might be) but rather the lyrics.
The simple line “I spent my 20s on rock n roll, I’ll spend my 30s feeling old” is pretty easy for someone who is verging on 33 (and did spend their 20s and most of their teens on rock n roll) to appreciate.
You have musicians like Neil Young who are still putting out good music, but at the same time, he’s from a different time. I feel like Rah Rah is really the first band to represent the generation that I am a part of (whether I like it or not) and that’s a pretty big feat.
