Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Hits a Grand Slam With Its New(er) Song
On weather.gov, it's a balmy 32 degrees outside. By this link, the Cardinals' pitchers and catchers don't report for spring training for another three weeks. Yet Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin -- which is playing tonight at the Billiken Club with Flaming Death Trap -- conjures warm summer nights and pennant-race baseball games with the following song. Written in homage to the Springfield Cardinals, the AA affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, "Cardinal Rules" is a breezy, catchy, awesome tune conjuring Big Star and Cheap Trick.
