The 11 Best Songs By Ezra Furman & The Harpoons

There's a lot to love about Ezra Furman.  He makes some of the most frantic rock music this side of the Clap Your Hands/Talking Heads line.  But that's not the only reason to love him.  On his last release, he offered some of his fans the the most exclusive thing a musician can offer a fan...a bonus song.  But not just any bonus son.  A personal song...written just for them.  Each person who order this special edition got their own personal song.  I was not fortunate enough to order in time to get one...but I respect him for at least making an attempt at such a grand undertaking.  You can find some of these songs on Youtube (check out below)...they vary from personal stories to songs about zombies and carl marx.  All I can say, is those who were lucky enough to get a private song...were truly lucky.
