Television -- 'Marquee Moon'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

The angular guitar playing, Tom Verlaine’s vocals, songs that never end and you never really want them to anyway. I can’t think of a band that embodies everything I love about music more than Television. This song is perfect for a drive of any kind. Every time it comes on, I blare the speakers as far as they can be pushed.

Groundbreaking band and album. I keep a copy in my truck at all times. I saw them live three years ago. Terrific show. I’ll never forget the night I took home my first copy of Marquee Moon from the record shop when I was around twenty years old. The store clerk leapt behind the counter and said “Man! I wish I could be you tonight, hearing Marquee Moon for the first time!”
