I was lucky enough to see Mark Oliver Everett perform with Eels for the first time last night, and I have to admit, this song has been trailing me every since. Unlike the rest of Everett’s self-proclaimed “sad bastard songs,” “Where I’m From” is the lightning strike in The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett‘s melodic thunderstorm.
No Doubt’s new single is totally what the doctor ordered…in 1999. You know what, though? I like the fact that “Settle Down” is a No Doubt song that sounds like a No Doubt song. Nice work Gwen Stefani and company, we’re glad you’re back!
