“Just a little haiku”

Buffalo Tom – “Tangerine” from Sleepy-Eyed (1995)

This song kicks ass. One of the better bands to mine the intersection between jangly pop and grungy guitars (that is, to imitate the Replacements), Buffalo Tom put out a string of solid albums in the early- and mid-’90s, including this gem, probably their best collection of songs, and their rawest (i.e., best) production. This song should be included in every musical history of the 1990s.

On a related note, these days I find that the 1990s yielded some truly great music, and I have a real deep affection for what my girlfriend calls “cheesy 90s music.” I mean, check it out
