Henry in Love

I have this el-pee by Henry Badowski. I think the album is entitled "Henry Badowski." I could check. I bought it for probably $2 at a used record store from some interest in it based on the sleeve alone. The huge picture of Henry's face on the cover wasn't particularly appealing (in fact a little creepy)---

---seems quite possible the draw was the name of the song I ended up digging the most, "Henry's in Love." And it's even better when you hear that it's Henry singing, in the third person, about Henry being in love.

Okay, now, thanks to the miracle of The Internet, I know the record was called "Life Is A Grand..." (though I could have gone to the living room to find out that much), and I'm about to find out more about Henry Badowski, whose song was my favorite song for a while, after I construct some hotlinks for ya'll peeps.

Looks like the Henry's label was IRS. That could have raised an eyebrow.

Now everybody listen to one or two of these, and I'll reward you with some kitten picture.

Some songs by Henry Badowski:
  .mp3 --> "My Face"
  .mp3 --> "Henry's in Love"
  .mp3 --> "Swimming With the Fish in the Sea"

In case you're already sick of that sort of music, self-reference, whimsy, and/or stuff these lesbians somebody once knew got her into, here's a (similar in that it's "blip"py?) number

from the Michigan record by Sufjan Stevens:
  .mp3 --> "Tahquamenon Falls"

(Locals, I looked---Tahquamenon Falls's way up on the UP. We should wait until Spring to make [a] pilgrimage, I'm gonna suggest.)
