Harvey Danger’s “The Show Must Not Go On” was NPR’s Song of the Day on December 30. Though the band has recently parted ways, lead singer Sean Nelson’s aforementioned breakup track is catchy and honest, as well as “an appropriate soundtrack to the end of a hard year and a frequently brilliant career — a remarkable feat for a band that deserved more credit.” The article adds, “There’s a lot of what sounds like hard-earned wisdom in those lines, not to mention more maturity than most breakup songs can muster. It’s easy to locate the nobility in persistence, sure, but there’s also wisdom in knowing when to pack it in and pursue happiness in other ways. Nelson clearly knows that, bypassing self-pity for a celebratory victory lap.” Read the full article and listen to the track at the link above.
