The BoDeans

Don't you love it when  you come across artists you hadn't known about before and they blow you away with their skill?  How you immediately fall deeply and passionately in love and you want to own or experience everything they've ever done?

Well, I've just discovered the BoDeans.  The way they modulate their voices, their exquisite harmonies, the fact that they're from Waukesha, Wisconsin, and they write their own songs, the fact that the lead singers seem to actually like each other and enjoy each other's company, their kickass music.  Just gives me the chills.

This morning, as we were getting ready for work, we queued up "Runaway" on the computer, and my little girl wrapped her arms around her daddy's neck and they danced all the way around the living room and kitchen.

So, for your Friday's moment of awe, here's the BoDeans live from Studio X singing "Stay."

Questions of the Day:  Who recently has just knocked your socks off, whether they sing or write or paint or sew or cook?
