"Green Eggs and Ham"

For this Saturday's "dash of happy" song, I'm going with the late lamented indie band, Moxy Fruvous. They were very clever and a lot of fun, and had developed a nice loyal following in the middle- to late-90's, before breaking up. They were also the funnest live band you ever saw, and me and the non-Sensual Goddess (pre-Sensual Goddess?) used to see them every time they came to town.

Their musical version of Dr. Seuss's "Green Eggs and Ham" was on a demo cassette (yes, cassette) that I picked up at a little club, after having been blown away by them as an opening act. This is a bouncy, happy, and very clever song - and never fails to bring a smile to my face.

Happy Saturday!


  1. I remember seeing them in a documentary about DNA. They sang a Gregorian chant about Gregor Mendel. Seemed quite talented.

  2. Couldn't help but like this one.

  3. Cassette? What's that? LOL
    Happy Saturday :)

  4. I really only know them for King of Spain, but they've got a great sound.
