Taylor Swift’s new album “1989” comes out Monday in stores and online. I’m very excited. I think this young lady is a terrific pop artist.
Brian Joens is an Iowa musician. He hosts a show on the community radio station KFMG in Des Moines. I like this song because it has a cheerful tone, but it’s also a harsh rebuke of bands who stays around too long. Lyric: “I was raised on classic rock, it was cool back in the day. … Guys, you’re playin’ casinos and county fairs, you know it’s time to face the truth … if you come to my town, I don’t want to rain on your parade, I’d rather stay home and listen to the last good record you ever made.”
