Surrender To Jonathan

Listening to a Jonathan Richman's record is always a secure remedy against bad temper, not only because of his talent in composing infectious melodies (does anybody remember an eight minutes live version of Ice Cream Man?), but you can also clearly feel how much he enjoys living and communicating through his music. This is why seeing Jonathan in concert is an even more exciting and funny experience, as proved also by a DVD called Take Me To The Plaza, that shows a performance at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, in December 2002. Accompanied only by himself on acoustic guitar and Tommy Larkins on a basic drums kit (Tommy is the same guy that appears with Jonathan on the movie There's Something About Mary), he offers an hour of great entertainment. Many of the songs are taken from the 2001 CD Her Mistery Not Of High Heels And Eye Shadow, that I've sincerely never heard, so I choosed a couple of older classic tunes. Pablo Picasso is from his earlier pre-punk period with the Modern Lovers, the song had been covered also by the Modern Lovers' producer John Cale, while I Was Dancing At The Lesbian Bar comes from the album I, Jonathan.
Mentioning the title of another of his records, all you have to do is Surrender To Jonathan.

Jonathan Richman - Pablo Picasso/I Was Dancing In The Lesbian Bar (2002)

I LOVE the 8 minute Ice Cream Man. Condidering the whole Modern Lovers Live album runs less than 30 minutes it's a rare treat. Esp. "Real Slow" part.
