I've been listening to this song "Stood Up" by Todd Rundgren. I was a pretty big fan of TR from the time I heard "We Gotta Get you a Woman" on Top 40. I cooled considerably when he left Bearsville. I still like to hear what he does. It's usually quirky and something I don't really make an effort to hear again. Well, all that has changed. When I heard this track from his 2004 album 'Liars' I decided, not only is Todd back and better than ever, but something new has been added. At first, it was fun to be won over again. After an album of Electro-Noodling and Bossa Bloody Nova, I wasn't really expecting a Todd Classic. Maybe that's a little pre-mature. I'm yet to hear it on cd. I understand the songs "flow" from one to the next like side one of "A Wizard a True Star" and that might add a bit from hearing them on downloads. This song "Stood Up", as near as I can tell, is a song about humility which is really something coming from the guy who called The Band "old fogies" (or was it Badfinger?) Also, hearing the song whoosh out of my speakers it made me a Todd fan all over again. Everything I like about him came rushing back into my head. The catchy bubble-gummy hooks, The splendid, ambitious production. Anyway, it's always nice when you think somebody is down for the count and they surprise you with something WAY better than you had any reason to expect. Don't you think?
