Best of the Rest: Lucy Pearl’s Can’t Stand Your Mother

Lucy Pearl album cover Lucy Pearl was chock full of gems, but for my money, Can't Stand Your Mother is the best song on the album.  It's the song that makes the best use of Dawn's ability to be sassy as hell and still be totally convincing and totally compelling.  Oh, and this joint knocks hard.

The interplay between her and Raphael is terrific, especially over the bridge.   The bridge is actually what makes the song so memorable.  What sounds like a crowd instigating a school yard fight gives the song a different kind of energy that kicks it up a notch. This would have been a terrific single and video.
