Nicki Bluhm And The Gramblers "Little Too Late"

Paul Westerberg referred to them as "jokes" in his songs.

They aren't so much jokes---with a set up and punch line---as they are funny turns-of-phrase like "a rebel without a clue."

That's what caught my attention about this Nicki Bluhm And The Gramblers tune.  It's full of good "jokes," the central one being in the chorus:

"It's a little to late to die young." 

And if you're just discovering Nicki Bluhm, delightful Van Sessions are a great way to waste a little time on Youtube.

Hear the song on Youtube.
