F is for...

Few and Far Between...10,000 Maniacs, 1992

Trying to recapture part of the soundtrack from my life during the 90's is my theme for the a-z challenge this year

This. Song. Oh my goodness! Not only was I a huge 10,000 Maniacs fan, but I dare say these lyrics have meant more to me than any others. I was in my early twenties, faced with a need to move forward. This song helped me realize that I was not unique in having regrets, and I basically needed to get over myself. I still need to hear it every now and then.


  1. They opened for the Dead in Buffalo, NY on July 4th 1989. She seemed to be having an off night or maybe she was just weirded out by the Deadheads. I remember she stopped in the middle of a song and said something about a person in front of her, down on the floor but I was up in the stands and couldn't see what was going on. Possible a fainting issue or a bad trip. It kinda rattled her the rest of their set.

  2. good tune. Natalie has such a unique voice too. It stays with you.

  3. I love her! I double dated with her and her date in 1985 in Tuscaloosa. She's sweet!

  4. YEEEEE!!!! I love them! Love, love, love them. Love Natalie Merchant!!! I still listen to her old stuff.
