America

Let us be lovers, we’ll marry our fortunes together

In a very real way, this song’s lyrics capture the essence of a certain demographic of this country in the ’60s and ’70s.  I know, because I was in that crowd, and it feels like my youth, too.

I’ve got some real estate here in my bag

There is a fun book called, Looking for America on the New Jersey Turnpike.  It’s illustrated only with drawings because taking photographs of the NJ Turnpike is against the regulations of the NJ Turnpike. 

And you know where the title comes from.

I was skeptical of the covers for this song because most of them on YT are those sad 3:12 clips of someone in their mom’s basement with an acoustic guitar and… anyway… this performance gets a standing ovation.   Well, sort of.  Only one member of the audience stands, actually.  But that’s OK.  Watch and see what I mean.

Live in the Suburbs

Who wants to do that?

 

Greatest Concert? Probably.

They call the Queen concert at Wembley Stadium in 1986 the greatest concert of all time.  I am not sure they are right, simply because it’s impossible to have sampled the entire space.

But I am not sure they are wrong.  Not least because of… this.

I always stop and listen when this comes around.

Freddie.

Damn.

Bonus opinion: they had better do right by him in this movie.

There’s already a lot of chatter that they are missing the boat.  I am reserving judgment until I get to see it in a theater.

100

Yes, these compilation videos are a dime a dozen.  Yes, they are easy to enjoy because they cherry-pick so mercilessly. Yes, he misspelled #20.

But this… is just… good.  So, there it is.

 

Sofa

 Frank Zappa tried to use music to teach society to be better, which is kind of like trying to train an elephant with a cattail.  It might notice, and it might just step on you for your trouble.  Still, the music was amazing.
