Yesterday's Artist

When I say "yesterday's artist," I mean it literally. Both songs of the day for my yesterday are by The Dears, making the band "Yesterday's Artist." Both songs are off of the band's 2006 album, Gang of Losers.

"You and I are a Gang of Losers"

"Ballad of Humankindness"

If you're wondering what songs you're hearing in the second verse of "Ballad," the line "No one should have to live all of their life on their own" is straight out of the Beatles "Eleanor Rigby," while the line "I turn on the news and there’s always some dude..." is, if I'm not mistaken, has Wheatus' "Teenage Dirtbag" written all over it. I know it might have been bothering some of you imaginary readers out there, as it was bothering me until it clicked. I thought I'd save you the trouble of agonizing over it if agonizing's not your thing.
