Cartoons and Comics: Soul Asylum/Cartoon


The band Soul Asylum brings to mind a few non-musical things: Dave Pirner's ripped jeans, Winona Ryder, milk cartons. Musically, the band has never put together a complete album, one with a balance of their finest assets: driving guitar leads, nostalgic melodies and graceful nods to their Americana roots. One of their best songs, "Cartoon" off 1988's "Hangtime" hits on all three, however, and includes the lyrical gem 'You're in the movies now that I'm in your cartoon."
