#999 Eels - Hey Man [Now You're Really Living]

So for those who don’t know, my uncle used to work for a record label back in the 1980s-1990s. During the 80s he used to send me dozens of 45 from bands like Duran Duran and artists like Billy Ocean. In the 90’s I got CDs from U2, the Candyskins, and once, from an artist just named “E”. I never gave “A Man Called E” much listen back in 1992 but in 1996 when a band called Eels came on the scene with “Novacaine for the Soul”, it was then I repacked up “A Man Called E” and really began to dig Mark Oliver Everett’s songwriting. This 2005 tune, the first single from “Blinking Lights and Other Revelations really makes me want to get up and shake my tail feathers!
