Released this day in 2003, this single was released by Seattle group composed of Ben Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello, and Jenny Lewis. Give Up is the only album they made together as The Postal Service. The actual USPS sold the band's CD briefly through their website, and here's the statement made about it: "[T]his week the United States Postal Service - the real one, as in stamps and letters - signed an agreement with Sub Pop granting a free license to use the name in exchange for working to promote using the mail. Future copies of the album and the group's follow-up work will have a notice about the trademark, while the federal Postal Service will sell the band's CDs on its Web site, potentially earning a profit. The band may do some television commercials for the post office."

Kiko And The Lavender Moon
by Los Lobos
(43 plays) | (0 fans)

This song is about a magical, albeit lonely character called Kiko, who comes out at night to "dance and dance." In SongFacts interview, Los Lobos' drummer and songwriter, Louie Pérez, told us he reflected upon his childhood when writing the lyrics: "I took this remembrance of the little house that I grew up in and Mom's dresser-top altar, and was able to fold that into a song."

Single, “Love Love Love,” from their upcoming self-titled album. In a statement, James said of the song, “‘Love Love Love’ is trying to steer the ship away from everything I’m talking about in ‘Regularly Scheduled Programming,’ and speak toward positivity and pure love, finding truth within yourself and in the world around you.” - https://bit.ly/3zygK6m
