Memorable Lyrics

From Two Medicines

" Two medicines are all we really need.
Two medicines - effectiveness guaranteed.
They aid communication, make for better sex.
You can mix the two together with no bad side effects.
Two medicines to help you through the years - laughter and tears.

On this, their fourth album, Timbuk3 shockingly departs from their well-rooted style and adds (drum roll) a bass player and drummer! And what a good move it was! The sound is fuller and more complete. There's even a steel drum version of "Sunshine"; I love steel drums. All the Timbuk3 signatures are here: wit ("God Made An Angel"), humor ("Mud Flap Girl"), good philosophical advice ("Two Medicines"), and uplifting melodies ("49 Plymouth", "Sunshine", and "The Little Things). This is the new-and-improved Timbuk3. Love the perfect match between the album cover photo and the album title, too.
