Imitation is the sincerest form...

So I was checking Not Lame's new releases this week, and one of the album covers caught my eye: Auto Interiors' Let Agree to Deceive Our Best Friends. Here it is:

It's actually a pretty decent album; I got a chance to listen to the whole thing on Rhapsody without even being a subscriber (you get 25 free plays). (Or you can download a couple of tracks from their myspace). But something about that album cover looked real, real familiar:

Ah, yes...Frank Brown's 2005 release Out of the Blue. (Of course, Frank's album title has an awfully familiar ring of its own). And it's a pretty good album, too, worth checking out if you missed it back then - it's still available on CD Baby and eMusic.

Nevertheless, I'm still a little disappointed in both of these discs; neither had a power pop cover of the Ohio Players' "Love Rollercoaster" The Pernice Brothers' "Ferris Wheel" on it.

Dude, where's the Florida Gators / World Record post? You're letting me down here. I expected more shameless braggadocio.

The Gator national championships have become so routine that they're almost unremarkable at this point.
