Song of the Day: "Mrs. Robinson"

Today is my last day here at Denver Music. Soon someone local will be taking over, providing a real grasp of the Denver culture and scene as well as who's playing in the area! I look forward to finding out about all kinds of new artists as well as well-known locals and I hope you do, too.

Today's song is one of the best songs that Simon and Garfunkel ever came up with. It's not one of their most meaningful, no; but it's about the MILFs and Cougartown and Stacy's moms out there who put the cliched daddy-caught-with-his-younger-secretary story to shame. I'm talking about you, Stifler's mom! And the best part is that Simon and Garfunkel sang about it long before it was cool enough for a movie franchise or TV contract.

Song of the Day: "She's Country"

On October 21, Jason Aldean will be performing at the Pepsi Center in Denver. Aldean is a pretty fine looking fella, though I'm not a big fan of his music; however, my favorite aunt adores him, and today's song is for her.  "She's Country" might describe any Midwestern or Southern gal, though it does specifically refer to a girl from Georgia, where Aldean is from. The lyrics likely speak for many country fans, though:

Song of the Day: South Park Theme Song

Sure, South Park takes place in Colorado, but the South Park theme song is also today's Song of the Day because:

1. Primus, who sings the song, will be performing in Denver next week (you can get tickets here), and

2. All new South Park episodes are back, which is always cause for celebration! In case you missed last night's episode, Matt and Trey poked fun at anti-immigration folks and spun the debate around, posing the question, "What would happen if Mexican immigrants returned to Mexico?"
