Right about everything

Tonight was our anniversary (3 years, baby – though isn’t it kind of funny to celebrate the anniversary of a big party?), and we went to see Erin McKeown, who we both happen to think is one of the most talented songwriters and performers out there these days.

It is impossible – im-possible, my friends – to be in a bad mood after listening to this song (the link is for lyrics but you really should do yourself a favor and go get it over at iTunes too). If Roo had been a girl we would have given him the middle name Estelle because of this song.

Plus, she rocks the t-shirt and tie look, which would make most adult women look more high than hip.

She has this whole schtick where she kind of talks like she’s 80 instead of 30 (if you’ve seen her, you know this is funny, not as annoying as it sounds). So when she introduced one particular song she mentioned that she was celebrating her 37th wedding anniversary, and that she wanted to share this song because it was her one secret to a happy marriage:

You were right about everything.

I think she’s onto something there.

    Happy anniversary!!!!

    And we also love Erin McKeown–I got to see her in two house concerts here in the midwest (once on her own in a double bill with Rose Polenzani and once singing with Voices on the Verge), but these days she seems to tour not-in-the-middle-of-the-country. I’m going to pop one of her CDs in the car right now in honor of your anniversary. May you have many more.
