Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Edie Brickell And The New Bohemians

Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians performed "What I Am," in the late 1980s. The lyrics insist that one not get too deep, especially when "Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box. Religion is the smile on a dog." Nevertheless, Brickell's vocal pacing and the percussion are funky, and the guitar solo is pleasingly reminiscent of Jerry Garcia's use of the wah-wah pedal.
