Song of the day: Stars/"The Comeback"

Canadian pop group Stars are one of my favorite discoveries of the past few years. Their album, Heart, and single "Elevator Love Song," blew my mind when I first heard them, and last year's album Set Yourself on Fire was my personal pick for album of the year.

Unfortunately, those albums aren't yet available in Rhapsody; folks here are still working to get the Arts & Crafts label (whose catalogue also includes excellent albums from Broken Social Scene and American Analog Set) on-board.

That said, with the addition last fall of the Le Grand Magistery back catalogue, you *can* hear Stars' earlier works through Rhapsody. I bought the band's first album when it came out, after my friend Hill put the band's mellow cover of The Smiths' "This Charming Man" on a mix. But until recently I hadn't heard their EPs, one of which, The Comeback, has been making me very happy of late.

After a very, very busy year in 2005, during which I took more than 45 trips, I can't think of a more appropriate song than "The Comeback." Enjoy the music!
