I’m sorry baby, but you can’t stand in my light anymore


Oh, ouch. This new one from former Husker Du / Sugar frontman
Bob Mould slices like a papercut. A regretful, honest papercut diagonal across your heart.

I always find the broken ones, what does this say about me?

Im Sorry, Baby, But You Cant Stand In My Light Any More – Bob Mould

This song is now available digitally as a single, and is from the forthcoming Life And Times, due out April 7th on Anti- Records. There’s an interview here and a jealousy-inducing review of his recent Noise Pop show here.

  • Great song–I bought it Monday from iTunes, and I can’t stop listening to it. He actually played this on the Circle of Friends DVD mini-tour in late 2007. I loved it then, and have been waiting to hear it “finished” for all this time.

  • I just stumbled upon this song last night. The lyrics describe perfectly a personal relationship of my own. And I have questioned myself at times “am I the one that is broken?”

    From a huge fan of Husker Du who will always hope to see those guys on stage as a trio once again!

    Thanks Bob

  • Not quite as gut-wrenching as Too Far Down or Explode And Make Up, but yeah, another winner from Bob.

  • Bob has always spoke voulumes to me and my life. Once again he shows up with a mirror of my breakup of an 11yr stint with someone. I can’t wait for the whole album. I think ;-)

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
