Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.
The Modern Lovers was a Boston proto-punk band formed by the Velvet Underground fanatic Jonathan Richman in 1970, lots of changes were made in the band’s lineup over the following 6 years. “I’m Straight” was originally recorded in 1973, but it didn’t appear in the 1976 album, it did surface in the reissued Beserkley Records CD in 1986. Easy to relate to this song, I mean who didn’t/doesn’t have an annoying Hippie Johnny in his life…

The New & Very Welcome
