Ah, the halcyon days of Central Snark and my Saturday Spins. Yes, the wildly popular Saturday Spins where I would showcase a new artist each week and my NBFF, my kids and a friend of a friend would drop by to listen.

Well the friend of a friend wondered if I would continue spinning even though Central Snark is sort of on hiatus so I said sure in as noncommital a tone as I could muster politely. Actually, I do love checking out new music and mostly get the opportunity to do so on my commutes to work.

So as not to trifle with tradition, I shall continue my spins right here on Simply Said. After all, it's nice to have a little music to chill out with on the weekends.

Today, we have Rilo Kiley whose catchy tunes have been bouncing around in my head for a while. As you can read in the above Wiki link, two of the band members were former child stars of shows that I have no knowledge of which means I'm too old to remember or too above it to have watched (that's my too old bitter side talking).

If you like them, check out a little more over at This is the video for their song Silver Lining from their latest album, Under the Blacklight. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend and for old time's sake, drop over to where old habits die hard.

The beginning of this song always reminds me of a Doctor Hook song.

This is my favorite recipe for a song... simple, melodic and memorable. Nice spin as usual my friend.

Nice song but what I really enjoy is the way she sings. Go girl!

Oh and I love its sense of humour.

Jeff, a good recipe to be sure. Glad you liked.

Ariel, she's good - isn't she?
