It's funny how a piece of music can locate a spot in space/time, isn't it? I was listening to the local AAA station (KFOG) play "10 at 10", and I heard an Aerosmith song... I instantly knew the year and place I first heard it. Sitting outside my house in North Florida, in a blinding rainstorm, dreading the walk into the house. Wow!
For me it's 9th grade in South Florida... hanging out at my best friend's house. This seemed to fit into our attempt to be more "alternative" than all the (so we thought) clueless kids who were only into Miami bass. If I recall correctly though, this was a VH1 staple at the time... perhaps not so alternative.

Sometimes I miss George even more. Think of all the stuff he had backlogged that would have - SHOULD have ended up on Beatles records if Paul hadn't been such a prima donna, insisting on his various fluff-fests, e.g. Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Hello Goodbye, Obla-Di-Obla-Da, etc.
George had My Sweet Lord, Art of Dying, Awaiting on You All, I'd Have You Anytime in the pipeline as far back as '68.
I know what you mean. I was 6 when John died - it's not even a vague memory for me. I definitely remember George dying, though - remember exactly where I was when I heard. I've always had a real soft spot for George due to "Here Comes the Sun," which we played at my mom's funeral, per her request. He wrote some real gems.
I don't mean this to be dismissive of John though. RIP.

Nice song and worth a 7 from the Nottingham jury, but the strapline "how does it feel like?" has me scratching my increasingly sparse bonce. I'm not sure that that sentence makes sense - "what does it feel like?" would be better. Or maybe I'm missing some subtle point CB are trying to make...

Now I wanna watch Secret Diary of a Call Girl
Her music always makes me wanna watch Mad Men - doesn't she have a song associated with the show somehow? Or is it just kind of a 60s sound? I can't remember - too long of a break between seasons with that show. Anyway, great song!

Always the last book of the night.... has been for all three of my kiddos
nice. My daughters favorite.
In the great green room
there was a telephone
and a red balloon
and a picture of—
a cow jumping over the moon
and there were three little bears, sitting on chairs
and two little kittens and a pair of mittens
and a little toy house and a young mouse
and a comb and a brush and bowl full of mush
and a quiet old lady who was whispering "hush"
goodnight cow jumping over the moon
goodnight light and the red balloon
goodnight bears goodnight chairs
goodnight kittens goodnight mittens
goodnight clocks and goodnight socks
goodnight little house and goodnight mouse
goodnight comb and goodnight brush
goodnight nobody goodnight mush
and goodnight to the old lady whispering "hush"
goodnight stars, goodnight air
goodnight noises everywhere.

Yeah, I'd love to hear some from "A Picture of Nectar" - the cd that started my Phish love. The only band I came remotely close to "following" - but I know seeing 3 or 4 shows in a row isn't really following, to the hardcore... does it help that I didn't shower for several days during that time period?

Like many great bands, legal and contract issues kept them from making more albums for several years. They never managed to recapture the magic of this album and eventually broke up. It's really sad too, with as good as this album is they could have went on to have fantastic careers if they hadn't buckled under the weight of the increasing popularity of British Indie rock.
That is definitely too bad, but I am glad to hear it wasn't substance abuse issues... for some reason that's what I was thinking, but I may be confusing them with other bands.
