Prolly so, can't help thinking he is the lucky one! lol

 
As long as he wasn't forced to listen to "MMMBop".

Were you really off the grid or just musically? We are headed that way, but I confess I will always want to keep my new music lifeline alive with an internet connection of some sort until it is no longer available anyway.

 
Pretty much, it was pre-internet and I just wasn't into local radio and didn't listen to and pop or rock. .. A lot of classical music or just nothing but the wind. Kind of miss it.

I spent a good chunk of the 90s digging up vintage country, gathering every recording by Hank Williams, stuff like that. I'm still at a loss to name a lot of 90s music. Rock historian Ed Ward recently discovered the Monkees. It didn't occur to him that there might be anything there (like we tend to be with any Top 40, right?).

To those that say this song (and the album in general) has been overplayed... you must not assume everybody listening to RP have heard this.  I only learnt about Chris Cornell when he recorded that song for a James Bond film. Although I am of an age where the 70's was my favourite era I skipped the 90's because I was absorbed in bringing up a young family and did not have much "me" time.

When the kids were growing up I started to hear the music they were playing (Greenday, Blink 182, Nirvana, Foo FIghters etc) and I had to learn these new bands quickly to be a relevant father.  Somehow a few names slipped through the net and I did not 'get' Soundgarden or the The Pixies at the time.

Radio Paradise fills in the gaps in my musical education, bit by bit, and I listen to everything without prejudice and an open mind.

I am sorry for those of you that are maybe a bit sick and tired of hearing some things over the decades due to mainstream overexposure, like I might be if RP played, say, Pink Floyd Dark Side of The Moon all the time. 

For those of us that find 'new to us' bands and songs, Radio Paradise is a godsend.

Let the music play on!

Yeah...eah...yeah...this song is just a way-to-long, excessive guitar, sloppy, too heart felt lyrics, bad drumming, mashing of music.

But it works quite well because its a one of a kind. A discrete moment of time...gossamer. You listen to it and then its gone.

  

 zigzag wrote:
Honestly, this is terrible on every level. A melody that is sub-juvenile, lyrics that even a schoolboy would find cloyingly cliched, a progression that most garage bands would dismiss immediately as excessively banal, a singer who shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a mic and a guitar solo that can only be the product of over consumption of alcohol.

I like Neil on occasion, but this sucks a big one.

There. I said it.

And I feel better. 
    
 And for a counterpoint:

kingart wrote:

I assure y'all that the track sounds exactly like NY wanted it sound, raw and raucous. The over consumption of alcohol? OMG!  Someone should yell at Mussorgsky or Mozart or Monk!  
And because of those choices (including any whiskey, although I may be wrong, but he has had an affliction that may disallow booze) and because no one more than he ever made a guitar sound (deliberately) like it was like a train about to jump the tracks (and NY really likes trains), and because of his stupendous c.v. and influence, and because this track reminds me of the wintry '78 day in Boston that I came within about 10 feet and as many seconds of being busted in my apartment building with a half-pound of weed — it will always have a special place for it in my heart, and those who think him an off-key banality should listen better.
