|I saw Dick in concert a couple of years ago in Madison. What a great show. Here's his tour schedule. http://www.dickdale.com/dates.html|
Go see him. You won't be disappointed.

|A few years ago, I played in a pickup band with Mauro Magellan, the drummer. Hell of a great drummer. Even nicer guy. Great to hear him and the Satellites on RP.|

Enough already! If a riff is dead in the water, don't play it fifty times!!
this was written in a different time and place and frankly nobody gets high enough anymore to appreciate the beauty of its repetition...

The melody near the end sounds a bit like Istanbul was Constantinople by They Might be Giants. :)
Just so you know, Istanbul (not Constantinople) was performed by They Might be Giants, not written by them. The original melody for that song actually comes from Putting on the Ritz by Irving Berlin.

No matter how many times you repeat something that's wrong ... it's still wrong.
I think highwindows must be W's screen name...

|Damn you, Bill. Now I have to turn of RP and go listen to the whole album on iTunes.

That was entirely too much water-noise to start off the song. Good thing it improves from there...
Get the whole album and listen to it end to end, and then you'll understand the water noise...

|You're right, it's not free. But paying money doesn't give anyone the right to be uncivil, rude and obnoxious as many of the people here are. For the life of me, I have no idea why some people post comments that they would never in a million years say to someone's face. That level of "discourse" doesn't help Bill and Rebecca improve the playlist, it only brands the commenter as ignorant and thus they probably get IGNORED.
For the record, I like the song.
Reality check. Not free internet radio. This station is listener supported. So if you think it is free, so be it. Kinda of like going to church and never dropping money in the plate.
Bill and Rebecca ask for our money so they can play music that we listen to. Part of that "subscription" is the right to bitch and moan and complain about the songs we think are crap. And also rave and praise the songs we love.
I give them a fair amount of money. More than what I would give sirius or XM. And in my honest "I paid for it" opinion, this song is lame.
|Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road|

|Think back to when this album made its debut. Rock and roll was being edged out by disco -- "The Hustle" was a #1 hit in '75 -- and the mainstream rock torch was being carried by the Eagles and the Doobie Brothers.
Born To Run brought energy back to the genre and between the songwriting and the production re-established the roll of the singer-songwriter as the driving force in rock. It also helped pave the way for other innovators like Patti Smith.
No you don't have to like it (I don't like everything played here and I don't worship everything Springsteen's ever recorded), but don't dis it without understanding the significance Sprinsteen and this album played in rock history. If it hadn't been released we may still be under the influence of Disco Fever... now that's a horrifying thought.

|I saw ELP twice live in '78, once at the Garden with the NY Philharmonic and a choir, awesome... then as just a trio at the Hartford colosseum, even better. A great band, great memories. Thanks for keeping their music alive.|
