Wow, what a wonderful write-up for the fantastic Michael Penn! I love him so much and his music and lyrics speak to my heart in ways other music cannot begin to come close to. I had never seen this video, so thanks very much for posting it! Glad you shared his powerful lyrics with your f-list and I hope other people are loving and appreciating him as much as I do.

Oh, I'm so glad to hear you're a Michael Penn fan! I should've known! And you, a Los Angelino! Have you been to see him at the Largo? I understand he gives a great show there!

Another reason I'm glad is that you're being a fan gives me an excuse to post this:


It's the Demented Genius Duane Dolislager -- AKA, it turns out, duanesneatmusic -- covering the Magnificent "I Can Tell" from Look What the Fans Drug In: A Tribute to the music of Michael Penn, which is a fantastic compilation of Penn covers created and recorded by members of the Michael Penn List Yahoo Group. The Pennlist is a wonderfully intelligent, friendly, knowledgable and fun group of Michael's fans from all over the world, and the tribute album they (all right,"we," but my vocals on "Small Black Box" are dreadful. The musical trake I defile with my pestilential singing is quite lovely, though!) created is a stunning acheivement, full of wonderful tracks, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

More on <lj user=duanesneatmusic>

You can hear some of Duane's own work at his MySpace page:


I give Duane a very high recommendation. The song that plays when you get to the page, "Like Day and Night," shines witrh hooky poppiness, musical Beatles references, and big, smily goodness, and that's just on one listen!

I actually haven't been to see him, which is so sad, because I've heard similarly to you that he gives an awesome show there! I need to put that on my list of "things to do before I die", don't you think?

Thanks for posting that link- it's amazing!!! I had no idea that there was this huge following of fan covers. I'll definitely have to download them and check them out when I'm at home with my own computer. Still, the one you posted was simply beautiful and so artfully done!

So glad you shared, as I now have another thing to enjoy within the realm of Michael Penn. ♥
