Waynes whirled...

The attractions of the Fountains of Wayne have always been a little lost on me, to be frank, but it would be churlish to not share the stream of their Yolanda Hayes single - a tale of falling for a woman who processes driving licence applications; a little bit "without your glasses and your hair down, you're beautiful, Miss Honeyfanny" all-in-all.

There's also a frankly bemusing claim to greatness in the accompanying press release:

But FOW couldn't help enjoying the new-found attention as they began headlining bigger venues, topping charts on MTV and VH1, and appearing on a "Now That's What I Call Music" compilation CD next to the likes of Jay-Z, Nickelback and Black Eyed Peas.

We know it's meant to show they've crossed over, but claiming any sort of kinship with Nickelback is surely anathema to all right-thinking people, isn't it?
