Artist: The Handsome Family

Album: In The Air

Appears On (Mixes): I'm Strapped To This Fucking Twin Bed: The Best Of The Handsome Family

Song Notes: This is such a great song—it's a fable of a milkman who falls in love with the moon. Like a lot of The Handsome Family songs, it's both sad and funny at the same time; they've got that dark sense of humor down, and Rennie Sparks is such a great lyricist that you really do feel sorry for the milkman, even though his dream is ludicrous. But, well, a lot of dreams are, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. But it does make it harder and/or impossible to reach, y'know. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
