Song Review: The Ordinary Fools Can't Hold Onto a "Vegan Girl"
Fans of rockin’ blues-y tunes and comedic fun will love The Ordinary Fools! The trio performed at our March showcase at The 5 Spot as a last-minute substitute, and were quick crowd favorites. We loved them right away, and knew we had to share them with you!
The Ordinary Fools have a highly entertaining, sarcastic, comic style to their lyrics. An audience can easily tell that these guys are good friends with a tight bond; their goofy, light-hearted nature plays so well with the subject matter of their songs. For instance, the band laments the trials and tribulations of dating a vegan. In the song,"Vegan Girl," the band takes you into a scenario in which a poor boy finds that he can't understand why his lady has forsaken him after becoming vegan for two months. (We don't know if this is a true story or not, but we really hope it is?) The witty humor and bright instrumentation is enjoyable no matter what you like to eat!
“Sad boy walking down the street
My baby left me cause I still eat meat
Three years she’s been mine
Two months she’s been a vegan
Now she cares more about poultry birds than she does about me
“How can that be?
Oh, how can that be?”
-from “Vegan Girl”
If you plan on having a fun night out and about, we recommend putting The Ordinary Fools on the schedule. This band is good times with your buds, knockin’ back a beer or two, laughing and carrying-on. You’re destined for a memorable night. Plus, these guys are friendly and personable! They’ll probably hang out with you after the show. Y’know, if you’re cool (we got sandwiches with them!).
