Song of the day: Jason Falkner – "My Home Is Not A House"

Today’s song comes from an album I like eeeeeenormously, Jason Falkner‘s All Quiet On The Noise Floor. (If I ever got around to making a Top 10 Power Pop Albums of the 2000s list, this album would probably be on it.)

Jason Falkner – “My Home Is Not A House” (2009)
Link Incidentally, I had a bit of trouble deciding which song from the album I wanted to play you. (Of the 11 songs on the album, I’d say about nine would have been eminently suitable.) I ended up going with “My Home Is Not A House” mainly because of a line that Jason sings from 1:45 to 1:51 (“I’ve got a secret”). The way Jason sings that line reminds me of this: Doris Day – “Secret Love (1953) (excerpt) Link I didn’t think the connection between the songs was strong enough to be considered a Musical coincidence (for me it’s more an association), so I didn’t make it one. I just wanted to mention it. Besides, there are plenty* of proper coincidences to go around. Here’s the full version of the wonderful “Secret Love”: Doris Day – “Secret Love (1953) Link (*An exchange that occurred between the eldest daughter and me last year when I was adding a Musical coincidence to the blog: Celeste: “Do you think you’ll ever run out of coincidences?” Dad: “It’s pop music. No.”)
