I’m nostalgic for a non-existant friendship.

This site needs a soundtrack, right? I’ve decided Say Hi to Your Mom is perfect. Really, it’s just one guy named Eric Elbogen, who I heard for the first time when he performed live on Little Radio a while back. He got my attention by singing a song called “Yeah, I’m in love with an android, but so what?” That one’s on the cd that comes out this summer, so I don’t have it yet, but I did buy his other cd, Numbers and Mumbles. The whole thing is very low-key and hipster, but it gets stuck in my head like crazy. On the website, you can download “Let’s Talk about Spaceships,” which is one of the songs I really like from Numbers and Mumbles. I also like “But She Beat My High Score,” which describes the tragic ending of a relationship.

Oh, Eric-who-I’ve-never-met! You make me wish I still lived in Brooklyn. You make me want to take the L train and dress in ’80s clothes and learn how to play the key-tar that’s leaning up against my bookshelf gathering dust. In another reality, I think we would’ve been great friends. You would have one of my paintings in your apartment, and I’d get to be one of the future-obsessed young ladies you write about in your songs. You’d have a lyric that mentions my pink hair and I would feel all kinds of special.

Maybe I’ll play with my keyboard today in your honor.

    Hi, I found your site and just wan ted to suggest "acid jazz" for your site music. I like the largely unheard song: "Toxic Night."

    Someone who knows about Say Hi To Your Mom! I hardly see anyone else who's heard of 'im. Not only is your website interesting and cool, you've got wicked taste in music (or at least we share a common interest in a band).
