Music Video: The Baseball Project – 1976

There’s been a lot of good music released in the last two months or so.  But out of all of it, this song, 1976 by The Baseball Project, keeps sticking in my head.  Ostensibly about Mark Fidrych, this song ponders memories, growing older and how “the camera lies and the mirror plays tricks.”  With an upbeat melody, nice lead guitar work (I think it’s a 12 string played by R. E. M.‘s Peter Buck) and bouncy harmonies and organ, it’s likely to stick in your head as well.
