Best Running Song for April - Spacehog - In the Meantime
What a great song. There's something about a Spacehog song...no matter where or when you hear one of their songs, it only takes about five seconds to identify it as Spacehog. They just have a great, unique sound.
This, of course, is their huge hit from 1995, In the Meantime.
And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that lead singer Royston Langdon actually was married to Liv Tyler. That's called "marrying above your station" for old Royston. I mean, marrying Arwen?!? Come on! Plus their son, Milo, has to be pretty well set-up, gene-wise, for singing stardom, with both Spacehog and Aerosmith genes awash in him!
One more great Spacehog song for your listening and running pleasure here: Mungo City. I first heard this song back in the day from grabbing a Spacehog CD, having no idea who they were, probably from a "12 for a Penny!" deal from Columbia House. Just a great album.
Rock that Run!
