One of pop music's greatest joys is when the singing stops and the artist expresses themselves through simple spoken word. It is a great moment. We plan to make this a regular feature here as well, and we thought we would begin by going waayy back in time to the original masters of this technique: The Shangri-Las.
The Shangri-Las were young ladies who were fucking miserable and happy like that. Perhaps Emo, but better. If LiveJournal had existed back then, the world would have been deprived of their masterpieces.
'You Can Never Go Home Anymore' is one of their best. Listen to it, have a cry, and then go call your mother. Do it now, tell her you lover her.


REMINDER: The servers available for "a site of this nature" are limited (And that's called "bad"). It can be a challenge to keep a file available for a day, let alone a week (And that's called "sad"). We will make an effort to keep the most recent songs available for a day or two so if you have a problem check back in about eight hours. Otherwise, we suggest you grab while you can.
