New feature: the MP3 o' the Week. Each week, or thereabouts, I'll post a new MP3 from my collection and a brief description/review/self-indulgent ramble about the song. Here is this week's selection, "Prince Valium" by Joe Pernice, off his 2000 album Big Tobacco. Pernice is the best songwriter going in America today, as far as I'm concerned, and this song is a perfect example of the Pernice formula: cynical, bitter lyrics tied to a beautiful, soaring pop chorus.
