Song of the Day: James - Say Something

I knew the song "Say Something" way before I knew it was the band James.  In fact, one reason I probably didn't know it was James is that its one of the worst band names in music history, not just for its un-Google-ability (?) but its complete lack of distinction or originality.  Fortunately for them, the band makes up for it with a great album, with not one but two singles that everybody knows ("Laid" being the other, and not to digress again, but another great name; Google "James Laid" and I'm sure you'll get some fun results).  The lead singer has a terrific voice, and the album was produced by Brian Eno (source: allmusic.com).  So don't judge a book by its cover on this one, unless you're a big fan of guys in dresses (which might come up with the aforementioned Google search).
