To those out there that think social media is a total waste of time, let me present this 45 to you. While I agree a lot of social media is a dump for the self absorbed, occasionally it can have positive results. In this case, it provided me with this 45 on the cheap, from a relative stranger, a person who I follow on instagram. I knew nothing about this 45 (and still don't) but the person who i follow (not gonna mention any names unless dude tell me otherwise and is cool with it) posted this 45 w/ a sound clip saying he picked up 2 copies on the cheap. i made a low offer half kidding and he upped it by a slight margin. A couple of days later and it showed up in my mail box. Sweet. Just goes to show that there are still cool folks out there in the world. Now enjoy this great soulful funky 45 from 1969 on the Minit Record label by The Charmaines. Cheers!

I picked this up because i thought the cover was a bit comical even if the dudes of the back look like science teachers trying to be hip. The song is a weird little bitter and cynical tune about divorce. I'm sure one of these dudes was going through one when this was penned. Sounds like a weird watery drugged out power pop version of a beatles tune...? But wtf do i know? i like it. The flip is a pretty bad ballad. no thanks....
