The Viewfinder: “A Road Song” by Fountains Of Wayne

Man, Fountains of Wayne have been peeling videos from the Sky Full Of Holes album like no one’s business. “A Road Song” is the fourth clip to be taken from this excellent album, and while it doesn’t offer much in the way of groundbreaking visuals (it’s a fairly prototypical “on the road” video), “A Road Song”, in my humble opinion, is the album’s best song.

The Viewfinder: “The Summer Place” by Fountains of Wayne

Technically, we’re still looking at a little over a week of summer left. So it’s not *too* odd for Fountains of Wayne to just now release their video for “The Summer Place”, right?

An Hour (& a Half) of Power (Pop) with Fountains of Wayne

I owe my love of Fountains of Wayne to a decision to go to Wendy’s. I was sitting in a booth, enjoying a late lunch one day, when “Hey Julie” came on the PA. Immediately taken with the song, I got back to my office, Googled the song lyrics and realized…I already owned it. “Welcome Interstate Managers”, the band’s third album, had found it’s way into my record collection several months before, and I’d never given it a truly thorough […]
