Song Of The Day 5/29/2015: The Fly Boys – “Jetsetter” (+ "Cruel World")

Overpop – The '80s: Part of the problem of daily music blogs in which the proprietor frequently programs bands or music in advance that even he has never heard of before sitting down for a fatal web session in which he stumbles across them is that (…42 words…) even with his most diligent, time-honored efforts he can’t find any information on said obscure artists, leaving him with a good chunk of copy space he has to fill with almost nothing in the way of deep or trivial information. (…85 words.)

We have nothing, nothing whatsoever, about the Fly Boys from Minnesota, except for the fact that they’re from Minnesota. Nobody has anything about the Fly Boys. We have no personnel listing. We have no idea who was responsible. We got nothing, except this one single they released in 1980, with a killer song called “Jetsetter” (leaving aside the silly elementary school taunt near the end of the tune) on the A-side, and a pretty funny song on the B-side called “Cruel World.” In fact – hey, you want that one too? Fine, here:

Why don’t we close this entry with a quote from Mark Twain’s The Mysterious Stranger? Just to give this some nice ruffly, literate edge.
You are not you–you have no body, no blood, no bones, you are but a thought. I myself have no existence; I am but a dream–your dream, a creature of your imagination. In a moment you will have realized this, then you will banish me from your visions and I shall dissolve into the nothingness out of which you made me.
Whatever they pay me here, it’s not enough. (276 words.)
