Just a little postcript to that delightful Tinted Windows clip Mary posted downstairs -- in case anybody thinks I was kidding about the fact that Hanson might have been a little more talented than we assumed back in the day, here's their quite astonishing 2000 single "This Time Around."
As you will have noticed, it's a song about mortality, fer crissakes, and coming from a bunch of kids whose testicles had barely descended I think you'd have to admit it's pretty damn audacious and wise beyond their years. Maybe that's why it flopped.
In any case, that the singer is now in the coolest supergroup of our time doesn't seem like a reach to me.
Oh, and if you want the mp3 of "This Time Around," just e-mail me.
