Just what a great songwriter he is was revealed by Joe McGinty at Pete's Candy Store in Williamsburg on Wednesday. The leader of the losers lounge played a couple of great tunes which could be big hits if played by the right bands or vocalists: "Kiss me, stupid" for example would be a perfect Abba song, while "She was the hippie's daughter" could be a nice XTC or TV Personalities tune and "In the Hall of Fame" should be given to Interpol or the Strokes, if they would get the irony. Great material! Joe and the losers have their biggest gig so far coming up: They will be performing Burt Bacharach hits at the Lincoln Center. Now, of course, they cant really call themselves losers, anymore, can they?
