Knick knack – Beat Happening

In this day of pop star adoration and that bedroom-wall-on-show-for-everyone that is tumblr, it is always swoonings and pictures of Calvin i see pinned up, never Heather.

Knick knack – Beat Happening

Almost 6 months and this is the first Beat Happening song. A Heather song. Last week’s Wedding Present entry: exchange every instance of “Wedding Present” with “Beat Happening”. Not that its an identical matching, in love, in what either band elicits me. For both, there is that knowing that the pop song is the ultimate song, love the ultimate songmatter, but Beat Happening did a lot more. And do a lot more for me. By how much i love the Wedding Present, that’s a whole lot more than a lot.
