Eels – Rock Hard Times

In songs on August 3, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Mark Everett is an interesting character. The son of Hugh Everett, inventor of the multiple-universe theory, the younger Everett has a band called Eels which is basically him (credited as “E”) and whoever he drags along with him. His observations on the world tend to be dark, but not without humor.

The attached song is appropriately themed for its release year in 2003. It’s also trickier than it sounds. Count the key changes, and then figure out how he got to them without anyone noticing.
