The melody to this song was actually written by Ringo. He met the brittish director and art collector Sir Derek Clive in a bar one night, and Clive asked him to write a tune for the movie he was filming at the moment, called "The mirror never talks back, or does it?". Ringo went up to his room and wrote the melody using George's guitar but when he presented it to Paul and John they turned it down. Ringo has always claimed they stole the tune and just added the words to it. The film completely flopped, btw.
Now did this happen before or after monkeys flew out of Ringo's ass?

I remember when this began to get major radio airplay; I was in 6th Grade, and I was strutting into class after recess, singing the chorus, and one of my mates said, "Hey and what I want to know is, why's he say that thing about Chevrolet?" and I said I didn't know.  Another piped up with, "That's right baby, I speak very fluent Spanish, and I totally test that Chevrolet!"  I said I didn't think THAT was quite what he said, but...anyway, we all agreed the song was a jammer, whatever it was he was saying.  Later, when I had learned enough of the lingo to deduce that he said, "Todo esta bien — " but for the life of me it still sounded a lot like Chevrolet, especially the way that some people in Latin America say it.  I'd also heard that some people from South America said something similar and it meant really fine, but I didn't hear it myself nor penetrate the secret with any degree of certainty until the summer of 2010 when I spent a couple months exploring Colombia and made my way to the time-forgotten jungle river idyll of Mompos and found myself happily surrounded by hard-partying hotties who loved to say, "Todo esta bien CHEVERE!" and, indeed it was...

I'm pretty much alone on this thought, but I find the 60's music rather boring.
Beatles are ok, but I'm burnt out on them
Doors had an edge, which is good.
Stones, Cream, CSNY, Momma's & Pappa's, Byrds, Beach Boys, and the rest of them are pretty lame

Maybe after 40 years, I just sick of this sound.

The first time I heard this song was while we were celebrating President Kennedy's election. We had the election on one channel and the moon landing on the other. My wife was worried about the Iranian hostage crisis , but I assured her Kennedy would
fix it. Just then someone put Jealous Guy on my new CD player. Yep, I remember it well.

Actually 25 or 6 to 4 refers to the Packers vs Bears score.  Seems the members of Chicago were big Bears fans ( go figure) and the typical score of a Bears Packers game is:

I hope for the equivalent of a 21st century Nirvana, to kill hip-hop. Here's to hoping.

One hand on the mic as he sang, the other hand was busy pushing the girls hands off of his package as they kept grabbing him
4 or 5 hands kept massaging him. He had a smile while he sang.  If the song went any longer, who knows what would have errupted

Ok , here's a new way to have fun with this song,,,,, only on RP!!

First , click on the RP home page "Click here to listen". This will allow you to listen as normal.

Then go to the Listen tab and launch a Windows Media session.

Thus you'll be listening to two sessions of RP, one on the RP web and the other on Windows Media.
They are out of sync by about a second or two, thus echo.

It sounds like your back in the 80's , brain a little fuzzy , but not for the same reasons it was fuzzy back then. This song sounded better with the echo.

try it

I remember hearing this song for the first time on headphones, in the moonlight, in the Namib Desert at the Gobabeb research station during a walk through granite boulders near the bed of the Kuiseb river, keeping a cautious eye out for the hyenas. I was about to emigrate from Africa to America and in some strange way this song seemed "about" what I was experiencing and was about to experience.

Heard it this morning when I visited RP because my subscription had expired and a form email from B&R reminded me politely to renew; a nice reward for discharging an enjoyable mandate.

Let me guess......

And next , Erniest T. Bass jumped out from behind the bolders and yelled " ITS ME , ITS ME. ITS ERNEST T "
And then you rethought your plans to go to Africa and decided to go to Mayberry

Huh, am I right?

Find them and help them.

Chicago - I'm A Man
(Jun 14, 2011 - 18:44)
their edge shot himself in the head, read from wiki:

1978 was a tragic and transitional year for Chicago. The year began with an acrimonious split with long-time manager James William Guercio. Then, on January 23, guitarist/singer/songwriter/group co-founder Terry Kath died of an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound. One account describes Kath's drunken last words to guitar tech Don Johnson: "Don't worry, guys. It isn't even loaded. See?"<11> Kath was the group's leader onstage, and for many longtime fans, its musical soul. Terry Kath's shocking death could have meant the end for Chicago, but encouraged by friends and admirers such as Doc Severinsen, the group held fast and soldiered on.

Every soul in a high wind and a light rain on a motorcycle at midnight has, involuntarily. It's a creepy, high arcing, narrow steel spider of a nightmare structure, festooned (at least at one time) with ornaments of crossed flintlock pistols on the stiles to commemorate the exploits of pirate/patriot Jean LaFitte.

Built under the administration of Governor Earl K. Long, brother of the Kingfish Huey P. Long himself, it has an unstable, acrophobic draw that will pull you against your will to peer over the 135 foot railing to the muddy water below.

I avoid it if at all possible.


At night I also sometimes think "why does yellow make me sad?" I then drive thru the narrow steel spider and I think to my self "gosh, I wish I had a friendly crossed flintlock pistol so I could perform the holly ritual of the deep south"  But then I think of my neighbors back yard weeds and how hard it must be for Gov. Long to push them up.

Maybe not true for everyone, but if you grew up in south Louisiana, traveled many gravel roads, and entertained death thoughts on the old Lake Charles Calcasieu bridge this incredible collection probably captures your soul. If you don't get the accent, you really ought to think about traveling more often, and getting off the main roads when you do.

Who hasn't entertained death thoughts on the old Lake Charles Calcasieu bridge?
God, I mean, do you really think your alone on this thought?

When you look at the album cover it's easy to see that Paul was dead and that the guy in the picture is a fake.

John killed Paul right before the Magical Mystery Tour album in a freak fishing accident. John wrote about this tragedy in "I am the Walrus". Seems John and Paul were fishing for walrus in the North Sea and, well, shit happens when your walrus fishing.
Anyway, on the album, the guy hired to replace Paul has his car parked on the wrong side of the street , which proves he's a fake.  Any idiot can see that.

I am a mature grownup who pays my bills, works hard every day in a shirt and tie, and swears in public if I damn well feel like it, as long as I'm around adults of similar mindset.  I'm not going go to out of my way to offend people, but I'm also not going to censor myself because some prude gets his knickers in a twist.

And it serves him right for having people hear it like that.  Honestly if anyone is going to play something in public that isn't directly controlled and edited for content, then they shouldn't be surprised if they hear something that they don't like.  Want watered down and easily digestible mindless sheep sound?  Get Muzak or something.

If you remove the Cohen's, Dylan's and Watt's vocal performance, all your left with is a bunch of American Idol type singers.

(Sep 08, 2010 - 07:56)
To help my daughter in her college English writting classes, I've shown her several of Paul Simon lyrics as an example of literary excellence, His structure and content is unmatched in pop music.  Add Art's vocals and you have a excellent combo.

Well done.

ps - She like Paul's writting too. 

U2 - Love Comes Tumbling

Yes, that comment deserves an apology. The Beatles comparison is a real stretch.  U2 has a large following and is selling out small arenas by the time Unforgettable Fire comes out - they're definitely a big act. But they don't become the mega band we think of them as until after Joshua Tree comes out in 87 - and its still only the 13th best selling album of the decade. Bruce Springsteen and the E street Band are a bigger act in the 80s - so's Bon Jovi.

All this talk of U2 vs Beatles is fine.   But to say Bon Jovi was bigger in the 80's than U2,,,  huh??????
I can easily see the Springsteen argument, both were huge in the 80's.

But Bon Jovi,,,,not sure where you were living in the 80's ( maybe bong land) but Bon Jovi couldn't carry the Edge's guitar pick.

If Dylan was playing this song at an Asian resturant you walked into , you wouldn't leave. And if you did, everyone would applaud your exit.
I would order Kung Pao and enjoy the show from Bobby D.

BTW - what the hell is "engrish..."

Neil Young - Round & Round (It Won't Be Long)
(Aug 21, 2010 - 08:12)
Good music but he's a bit of a bird brain, but don't tell him, he might squawk and fly off the handle. I don't want to ruffle his feathers or have his beak out of place

Quadrophenia is a masterpiece.

I might dust off my Zoot Suit and get ready for a beach fight.
I just wish I could explain that uncertain feeling in my brain.

(why do I have to be different?)

Not a Cat (Ali Shak Mohammad whatever) Stevens fan, but this is a great album.
My older sister use to play this one in the day.
Very soul full sound

Steely Dan - Midnight Cruiser
(Aug 04, 2010 - 09:27)


In days past, the home stereo speakers had to be as big as a chair to get good sound quality.
Steely Dan and Pink Floyd were the two bands that were used on new stereo's to determine how good your stereo sounded.
The sound quality, separation and clarity from a Steely Dan ( & PF) song was unmatched.

Gotta love big ass stereo with Steely Dan 

Black Crowes - She Talks to Angels
(Jul 26, 2010 - 11:42)
In general, this song is just kind of boring.
Never could understand its popularity.
To each their own.

Al Di Meola & Paco DeLucia - Mediterranean Sundance

Damm this sounds good. 
Never heard of this guy, but I'll sit up and pay attention now.
Great stuff

Cowboy Junkies - Thunder Road
(Jul 20, 2010 - 17:25)
Good cover, but lacks the emotion of the original.
Gee , that's like saying that picture of Mona Lisa is nice but the original is better,,, duh 

Johnny Cash - The Man Comes Around

Mr. Cash is one of a kind and that kind is outstanding!

Pearl Jam's released several good albums/cd's lately, perhaps not up to the freshness of "10" but still good.

Rolling Stones - Street Fighting Man

I actually kind of enjoyed this song the first 11,345 times I heard it.
But lately, oh, say the last 14,328 times I've heard it, I feel it's getting old.

Ween - Buenas Tardes Amigo
(Jul 12, 2010 - 12:21)
Sounds like a Mexican  Leonard Cohen

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros - Home
(Jul 12, 2010 - 10:16)
Very fun song

U2 - Until the End of the World
(Jul 09, 2010 - 11:48)
Agreed!  The Edge is what sets this band apart from the rest. This song is a great example of this.
His name fits his role, he gives U2 the edge.

Radiohead - Reckoner

Great song, great album,
Keep playing Radiohead

The Clash - The Guns of Brixton
(Jul 09, 2010 - 11:18)
London Calling was released in 1979
To fully appreciate how great this album  is, look at this list of the top 10 songs of 1979:
1. My Sharona, The Knack
2. Bad Girls, Donna Summer
3. Le Freak, Chic
4. Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?, Rod Stewart
5. Reunited, Peaches and Herb
6. I Will Survive, Gloria Gaynor
7. Hot Stuff, Donna Summer
8. Y.M.C.A., Village People
9. "Ring My Bell", Anita Ward
10. Sad Eyes, Robert John

Ok, these 10 songs suck. Thank God for London Calling and the Clash.

ps- Bill for a rule of thumb -do not play anything from 1979 , except anything from London Calling, Springsteen or Costello.

Iggy Pop - The Passenger
(Jul 07, 2010 - 08:18)
He needs to be renamed to "Icky Poop"
Hate this guy

Rolling Stones - You Can't Always Get What You Want
(Jul 05, 2010 - 12:24)
I've always hated this song for the simple reason that it sucks!
I know, I know,,,, "it's classic rock" , but that's only because it gets played so much.
Dump this one, boring!

The Beatles - She Said She Said
(Jun 26, 2010 - 11:30)
After all these years, you'd think they'd know , no one cares what she says.
yap yap yap

Bruce Springsteen - Brilliant Disguise
(Jun 23, 2010 - 14:11)

Agreed, this is a masterpiece!
I often thought this was the best overall "human relationship" descriptions ever written (for Rock and Roll of course).  
TOL walks you through the joy of discovery, to the despair of loss.  Brilliant piece of work.

Sarah McLachlan - World on Fire
(Jun 23, 2010 - 07:19)
I agree, this song sucks. Nails on a chalk board sound

Joan Baez - Diamonds and Rust
(Jun 16, 2010 - 09:45)
This song reminds me of the scene in Animal House, where Belushi dressed in Togga, pulled the guitar out of the folk singers hands and smashed it against the wall.  He obviously did it to save his sanity from the crap that was being played.

If only I could pull the guitar out of Joan's hands

Bruce Springsteen - The Promised Land
(Jun 11, 2010 - 12:42)
I was 20 when this album came out. Nothing speaks to a 20 year old like this masterpiece.
In my opinion, this is the greatest album ever made.

The Beatles - While My Guitar Gently Weeps
(Jun 08, 2010 - 14:20)

George is looked upon as the "other Beatles" or "less talented Beatles", "third leg"
If you count up his hit songs, both with the Mop Top and solo, it's a really impressive body of work.
Not bad for the "other Beatles"

Silversun Pickups - Draining
(Jun 07, 2010 - 18:32)
I usually dislike anyone who's nominated for a Grammy, but these guys are good.
I like Nikki on bass too, very talented!

He sounds like the singer who died in Alice in Chains

Norah Jones - Stuck
(Jun 02, 2010 - 12:59)

Much better than your grandma's Norah Jones album from a couple of years ago.
This one provides interest and lacks that annoying commercial aspect of her first album.
I might even buy this one. 

Bob Dylan - It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)
(May 25, 2010 - 14:15)
Sounds like an early Rap song.
Yo Yo Yo

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros - Home

This song is so good. It grows on you and won't let go.
Love it.

Coldplay - A Rush Of Blood To The Head

Another wimpy song from Coldplay. 
Martin always sings of losing, crying, being weak and confused. 

HEY CHRIS,,,,, get a spine!

Wilco - Deeper Down
(Mar 03, 2010 - 18:29)
Wilco, Wilco, Wilco ???

Why is it I like you so?

The vocals aren't special, the sound is generic, the production is standard,,,,,, but I like it so much.

This is the one band I can't figure out,,,,,,,,,,,, maybe that's it.......hummmmm

Pearl Jam - Force of Nature
(Mar 03, 2010 - 18:27)

PJ has a great sound and Eddie's voice is special.
Hopefully they keep putting out good material like this.

The Beatles - A Day In The Life

For all you RH haters out there, go watch American Idol and day dream about Taylor Swift.
Radiohead gives us music with depth. If your to shallow to appreciate this,,,, your loss.

Pearl Jam - Unthought Known
(Jan 22, 2010 - 14:39)

For those who love to whine about PJ's new recordings, I say "feel free to move to the present day"
Their last three CD's are as good as their first three. Get out of the 90's and learn to enjoy today

Uncle Tupelo - Moonshiner

And it's not hear
It disappear
I'm all lost

Said it before,,,,, say it again,,,,,,
Greatest album made in the 70's
Thanks Pete

Xavier Rudd - Home
(Jan 14, 2010 - 10:38)
At first , I thought it sounds a bit like Paul Simon's voice.
Not bad

Pearl Jam - Immortality (Live)
(Jan 13, 2010 - 10:18)
Eddie has one of those "forever memorable voices".  Same as Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash and John Lennon.
I hope he keeps singing.  PJ included! 

Rickie Lee Jones - Up from the Skies
(Jan 12, 2010 - 19:28)
Anyone got any No-doz? 
They're needed,,,, boring!

The Who - Love, Reign O'er Me
(Jan 12, 2010 - 18:59)
My opinion,,,,,, Greatest Album ever made.
I know you may not agree,,,,, but again,,,,,, my opinion.

The Who - The Rock
(Jan 12, 2010 - 18:56)
My opinion,,,,,,, Greatest Album ever made.
I know not many agree,,,, but again,,,,, my opinion.

Radiohead - Street Spirit (Fade Out)
(Dec 26, 2009 - 16:51)

The Clash - I Fought The Law

Radiohead - Sail To The Moon
(Sep 29, 2009 - 11:04)

Fantastic song!

Nils Lofgren - Keith Don't Go (acoustic live)
(Sep 18, 2009 - 11:46)

I just saw Elvis working with Michael Jackson at the Burger King.

Apocalyptica - Ruska
(Sep 04, 2009 - 11:49)
Outstanding.  I bought the cd because of this song.  Half the songs are like this , the other half are heavy metal. Quite surprised by that. All of it's good.

Coldplay - Talk
(Sep 02, 2009 - 16:20)
Coldplay has a catchy sound , but very wimpy lyrics.
     "I'm scared of the futures, Lets talk, do you want to talk?

Iggy Pop - Lust for Life
(Sep 02, 2009 - 09:58)
Hate this song.  Hate this drug addict. Watch the "Behind the Music"  show on VH1 about Druggy Iggy. Stomach turning stories.
