“Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)” by Squeeze is a song that just when I think I have figured out the meaning, I hear something new in the song that makes me think twice. Anecdotaly, it seems be one of the most mislabeled, misheard songs in the history of music; it is also a song that everyone has probably heard a few times but doesn’t know who it is or what the title of the song is. The song reached 44 on the U.K. charts in May 1980 but did not chart in the U.S. It was released on their 3rd album Argybargy.

Trying to keep the energy up this week with some 90’s alternative and dance hits, tossed lightly with 2000’s alternative jams. Not everything is genre specific, however. According to my iPod, here is what carried through some intense cardio and legs yesterday:
As you can gather from the music, very interesting workout yesterday. Will make some adjustments and regroup for tonight’s workout. As always, you can follow my bodybuilding progress at my BodyBuilding.com profile. Over 45 lbs. lost and kept off since January 2010!
