Dexter Freebish – Leaving Town

Sometimes you forget about a song for like 5 years until it comes up on your iPod shuffle and you decide not to skip it like you have the last 35 songs in a row because you can’t decide what music you’re in the mood for.

Sometimes you then realize how freaking awesome that song is and wonder how you hadn’t known this all along.

I mean, it happens to me anyways.

Dexter Freebish is not a real person—the band actually got their name from the name of a roller coaster. They’re also still making music, having released 4 albums total. But in terms of their actual popularity, as far as I know, they’re a one-hit wonder, with “Leaving Town” burning up the airwaves in the summer of ’00 and that’s it. It’s from their debut album “A Life of Saturdays” (how great is that name, by the way?), which features what I assume is the eponymous “Dexter Freebish’s Electric Roller Ride” as its album art:

Anyways, this is just one of those perfect songs to belt at the top of your lungs as you’re cruising on the highway with the windows down.
