Song: Get in Line
Artist: Barenaked Ladies
Favorite lyric: I wish that everyone I knew hadn’t sold out to the man
Significance: The Canadian group had a couple of big U.S. hits when I was working in a music shop (Don’t worry Sonja, someday I’ll explain what a “CD” was), including If I Had $1,000,000 and One Week. Oh how the other sales associates laughed and laughed at that million dollar song. I was never really a fan but I stumbled upon Get in Line a couple of years ago and for the life of me I cannot figure out why this funky gem didn’t get any sort of recognition.
Here is a rather low quality version of the “official” video.
This has better audio if you bump up the quality settings.
