They Don’t Bother Me

Everybody has those inexplicable how-the-hell-did-I-miss-this pop culture gaps. Graham Parker is one of mine. Based on everything else I’m into, his music should have been an undeniable can’t miss. I mean, he sounds like Costello, Nick Lowe, or even early Joe Jackson to my ear. What’s not to love? But besides this one song, which I’ve heard less than 10 times in 50 years, I can’t name anything else by him.


But this one song is pretty great.

  1. Jesus. I have like five of his LPs. Squeezing Out Sparks is a classic. Wake Up Next You is another good song, but Local Girls is probably my favorite by him.
