Song Of The Day – 1/21/11

Song Of The Day – “Push Th’ Little Daisies” by Ween

 From their 1994 magnum opus, “Pure Guava,” comes Ween’s first pseudo MTV hit.  I say pseudo because it was the first tune they made a video for…even though it got very little airplay. However, the song did make the top ten in Australia…go figure. I discovered them watching “Beavis & Butthead” back in 1994…they said “Ween suck”…I disagreed! In fact, I think they are one of the greatest stoner bands of all time. Ween hail from New Hope, PA and have been together since 1984. They spent their early days playing any venue they could including dorm rooms and bookstores at Rutgers University. Dean Ween (aka “The Deaner” or Mickey Melchiondo) is a shredding guitarist and also a complete angler.  Geen Ween (aka Aaron Freeman) is the vocalist and possesses one of the most unusual voices I’ve ever heard. The helium sounding voice in this song is not processed…he really sings like this, although he does not use this voice on every song. As a result, absolutely nothing sounds like their first five or six albums which are all worth seeking out.
