The Lied To’s “Millionaire” – Listen

Wow.  Susan Levine’s vocals are just perfect on this song about how life, and family life in particular, can be so imperfect.  With Doug Kwartler backing her up beautifully a song unfolds that’s full of weary acceptance of the way life goes.  Marriages fall apart, second wives aren’t great stepmoms, and all the time the train’s roll by a small town that only knows small town concerns.  It’s a beauty – and The Lied To’s have a whole album of such songs – ‘The Lesser of Two Evils‘ – that’s recently been released.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
