The Top 10 Spoon Songs & a Band Retrospective
#7 The Underdog
In comes the pop, mariachi band, and a re-energized Spoon on another single, “The Underdog.” A tale of, well, the Underdog winning. And wedding cake.
Produced by Jon Brion and Spoon it shows another range that Spoon are great at: acoustic songs that are aggressive, heartful, and soul. They don’t need huge guitars or distortion, like The Beatles they can make a song impact and rock and roll with just an acoustic guitar. That’s the failure of most songwriters.
