The Lemonheads - The Outdoor Type

"The Outdoor Type" is my favourite song by "alternative" American rock band The Lemonheads. It appeared on their last album for Atlantic Records, 1996's Car Button Cloth, and was written by Tom Morgan who wrote or co-wrote several songs for the band, even though singer Evan Dando was the main songwriter. On this countryfied tune the slacker in Evan Dando comes out in full, admitting he's not an "outdoor type", that he's "never set foot inside a tent, can't build a fire to save my life". It's a very funny song, but it's also a great pop song disguised as a country ditty with a short burst of an electric guitar solo thrown in for good measure. Fantastic!
