All you want's one more Saturday...

I am predicting that I will listen to the song "Australia" by The Shins until I'm absolutely sick of it, if that will ever be possible.

This encapsules as much fun and unfettered joy as I've gotten from a pop song in a long, long time. Perfect for the waxing days of late winter...

Will you be pulled from the ocean
But just a minute too late
Or changed by a potion
We’ll find a handsome young mate for you to love.

You'll be damned to pining through the windowpanes
You know you'd trade your life for any ordinary Joe's
Well do it now or grow old
Cause your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold

Has listening to The Shins changed your life?

It changed my life for this week/month.

Seriously, this song evokes as much visceral-emotional response as Lightning Seeds' Pure.

Hie thee and listen NOW if you haven't!
