Basic pop, cute but odd: More than half the songs are about other musicians. Nicely fey overall, with a satin baritone vocal. Lyrics aren't overtly goofy like They Might Be Giants -- just amusing and a little strange.

1- Folky, mid/fast, with harmonica; about Dave Matthews
2*- Fun mid/fast pop
3- Dave Matthews again - his "autobiography." Fey '70s-pop sound, some spoken word
4*- Simple and sweet. "Lenny's 12 feet tall!"
5- Slower, jangly
6- Fast, cute, gay
7*- Midtempo minor key
8- Country twang, slow, kinda funny
9*- Slower, pretty
10*- Country. Nice tune, actually sounds like John Cale a little bit.
