It’s another 90’s Friday at Marco.org! Here are the Crash Test Dummies with God Shuffled His Feet.
It’s from their 1993 album of the same name. You know Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm and possibly Afternoons and Coffeespoons from the radio.
This is my strangest musical quirk, by far. I like the Crash Test Dummies. I admit it. Not all of their albums are good — just the first three.
Apparently they were very popular in Canada, where they’re from, but I’ve never met anyone in the U.S. who knew any of their non-radio songs — except once. When we met with Vimeo for the Tumblr API integration last fall, Jakob Lodwick was playing A Worm’s Life in his office. It’s the only time I’ve ever heard anyone else playing their music in the last 15 years.
Their airy pop-rock sound is impossible to compare to any other well-known bands, and their whimsical lyrics are odd and ridiculous. If I had to pick one song of theirs to be the best, it’s this one. Headphones and relaxation recommended. Enjoy!
