31 Songs in May: Day Three - The Mountain Goats - "Foreign Object"

I wasn't so fond of the latest album by The Mountain Goats, but there were a few good songs in there. One of them is "Foreign Object," which fans of professional wrestling should warm to immediately. Nowaways, with the rise and fall of ECW and an "Extreme Rules" and "Tables, Ladders, and Chairs" event yearly, the idea of worrying about foreign objects in a wrestling ring isn't so pronounced, but I remember it being a Big Deal, and so does John Darnielle. The horns give it a bit of a jaunty lift, and it ends up being a standout track.
