Phosphorescent Played My Second Favorite Song of the Year on Letterman Last Night

When I first heard “It’s Hard to be Humble (When You’re From Alabama),” off Phosphorescent’s excellent Here’s to Taking It Easy back in the spring, I mentioned that it was making me want to hug people and drink beer. Now that there’s a Christmas tree standing a few feet from me and I’m wearing sweaters and scarves and coats every day, it’s making me want to do those things even more, which maybe doesn’t mean all that much because fine, yes, it’s true: everything makes me want to hug people and drink beer at this time of year. Anyway, so good. (Also, my number one favorite song of the year is “Angela Surf City” by The Walkmen, obviously.)
