I don’t think many people know Freedy Johnston, but he’s good. Damn good. According to Wikipedia, “Johnston’s songs are often about troubled loners, and cover topics like heartbreak, alienation and disappointment.” Naturally anybody who sings about troubled loners and disappointment is right up my alley. Also, his great song “Bad Reputation” was on the soundtrack of the excellent 1995 Noah Baumbach film Kicking and Screaming. So, in conclusion, listen to Freedy Johnston.
