From the 'how could I be both blind AND stupid' admission files.
Seen this album cover a few thousand times since I was young and remember the song from its release in '78.
But until today, just now, did I look at it and realize it was a view from a plane and that the waitress on the cover is playing the statue of liberty. Holy cow I cant believe I just admitted that.....
holy cow, Dave...I can't believe you just educated me, too. There were just a few distractions in the late 70's..at least for me!

Usually, when I hear a song it's on a very visceral level. Politics don't come into the picture - it's about how the song makes me feel, and whether it makes me dance or cry. Eventually I'll get around to reading the lyrics, but even then, sometimes it won't change how I feel about that song's first punch to my heart and gut.
I bought the vinyl of "The Joshua Tree" because of "One Tree Hill." And then I bought "The Unforgettable Fire" on vinyl, based on the strength of what I'd heard from "The Joshua Tree," and I wasn't disappointed. I fell into the music the same as I did with the Led Zeppelin "Runes" vinyl. It was another world for me, and I became a part of it. I now have all three works on CD, in my Sidekick's 10-CD changer. If the price of gas wasn't so high, I'd probably never leave my vehicle.
U2 might always be viewed as a controversial, politically-outspoken band, but for me, they're just people, making music that I love.
Fire bad. Tree pretty.

Oh, geez. I'd forgotten this song - now it's back, and I'm grinning all over again. THANK YOU to whoever submitted it. And thanks to Bill and Rebecca for playing it. I'm crippled inside, but it doesn't matter, because this song makes me smile...
same here, nobody makes you smile like the beatles/john lennon

Amen. This really is one of my favorite Hendrix songs. Somehow It mercifully wasn't overplayed by the "classic" rock stations that I listened to in my youth.
never heard it, like a lot, reminds me of SRV..great guitar

Don'cha just LOVE how music oozes and seeps across borders and cultural boundaries? Cuban jazz is one thing. Afro-Cuban jazz was one expansion, and here's another just by adding a ska beat—and messing a bit with the horn arrangement. All it takes is one visionary to ask, "Why don't we just add...?" I have no idea if it has any staying power, but this is great stuff.
piano, nice. drums make the hips move, too

This IS Tom Petty. It's a band he had earlier, and he's regrouped with them (yeah, and also with the Heartbreakers) to put out Mudcrutch. Don't freak, please. You're dead on.

There's a lawsuit here for one of them if Cat Stevens can go after the Flaming Lips for "Fight Test" vs "Father and Son"...

Geez... Beth Gibbon's sultry singing of this song jsut makes me melt into a puddle of remorse for not having been there for her when she was so desperately in need. And I don't even know her!
