MP3 is a live version of "I'm Straight" by Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers, from Precise Modern Lovers Order. This is an earlier rendition than the version on The Modern Lovers, and is far more vicious and sarcastic than the somewhat gentle upbraiding of the more well known album version - Richman's bile is dialed up to Costello-on-This Year's Model levels as he takes shots at the shallowness and conformity of the Woodstock generation.
