Song Of The Day: “Drinking In LA” By Bran Van 3000

Even though I’m on a serious summer music kick today which has taken me from Fountains Of Wayne’s Utopia Parkway to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Chronicles Vol. 1, this song by electronica band Bran Van 3000 gets the “Song Of The Day” banner for taking me right back to 1997. The song popped on in the coffee shop I’m working at and I practically threw my headphones off when I realized what it was. I felt instantly transported back to my room in my parents’ house doing homework with 89X the Detroit radio station that played all kinds of “alternative” music. I have no idea if this track was big at the time, I don’t ever remember seeing the music video, but I heard the song enough to still remember large chunks of the vocals. I’ve since discovered through conversations with the missus that 89X would play a lot of tracks that weren’t big single anywhere else. Anyone else remember this track? I’m looking at you, my fellow Toledoians.
