Love this song but catching bits of the Greg Kihn band  "Remember" in it? (rhythm or the changes)
(which I first heard "remember" on RP!)

Saw this band pre Crime of the Century 100 people, and two years post Crime of the Century 3,000 people.

This ENTIRE album is freaking awesome, and get's an 11 rating!  And what a great opening track....followed by Bloody Well Right.  You really should listen to the entire thing, if not on a GREAT system, then at least decent headphones.  It's one of the best concept albums made by a group not called Pink Floyd.  T

And I also am sad about the decline in enthusiasm for HI-FI these days...heck, digital files themselves leave a lot to be desired....then add Bluetooth and well....this on Vinyl with good power and speakers will blow your mind!  PEACE and Long Live RP!!

When I was a teenager in the 70's I would visit high-end stores just to fantasize about owning audiophile grade gear.  Lord knows I had no money for the good stuff, but one could dream.  Those stores always had sample music to show off the equipment, and more than one store had this album because the production was so clear — lots of ear candy when played at volume through the right speakers.  If you play this through ear buds, even today's best, what you hear is simply not the same.

Apparently fewer young American listeners care about this now ... A guy being interviewed on the radio said he travels the world (I can't remember why now, but it was unrelated to music) and pops in to high-end audio stores whenever he gets the chance.  He observes that in north American stores, only old-ish guys are shopping for high-fidelity (when was the last time you heard that term?) gear.  He only sees young shoppers when he's abroad, especially the far east, Korea, Japan, etc.
 
I worked in an electronics shop in the very early 1980s for a year after graduating from high school, and this is one of the songs I used to demo stereo systems. I remember we had a pair of Klipschorn speakers that this song really came alive on. No one ever bought them, but everyone was impressed.

I so love it when Bill lines up two songs in a row that not only are in the same key but use the same chord progression. That's something Pandora or Spotify or Amazon could never do. I just heard these two back-to-back:

Woodkid - Boat Song
Supertramp - School

It does make me wonder if Woodkid ever listened to Supertramp and if they consciously or subconsciously ripped off Supertramp's riff.

 
I was going to say the same thing about Mad World followed by School.  Bill is a genius!  Support sent.

"Schooldays" by Gentle Giant and Rush's "Subdivisions" are both better songs on the subject. And yet ...

Wow. 
I'm catching that the Woodkid and the Supertramp tracks have similar opening and through-line melodies. 
Someone's paying attention.

Being a "minority" does not make one wrong, particularly about trite, schmaltzy treacle like this song.

Are you still listening to your own music server? 
Hoping so!
