Fifty states: Maryland

The Mountain Goats: Going To Maryland

When the theme is a geographical one, you can always rely on Mountain Goats mastermind John Darnielle. His Going To series contains an amazing 43 songs up to now, spread out over many albums, cassettes and singles. It would be great if someone compiled them on a box set sometime. There´s Going to Jamaica, Going To Bolivia, Going To Marrakesh, Going To Reykjavik, Going To Some Damned English City... And hey, there´s even a Going To Maryland... "And it's a stupid trick of fortune anyway, but the lights are bright tonight and your eyes shine tonight on Chesapeke Bay."
