Modern Lovers

Inspired last week by student Justin Humble's cityscape on white office paper (images of which to come), I mentioned the Modern Lovers' song "Government Center," which includes such immortal lines as, "They gotta lotta lotta lotta great desks and chairs uh huh at the government center!" I've always enjoyed Jonathan Richman's low-key and joyful outsider status as a songwriter and performer, and then I came across this video, made of found footage, which seemed just right for inclusion on this blog. (Also, if you've got 8 or so minutes to spare, give this a listen.)
