WinkHappy belated whatever holiday to all my fellow Fagen/Becker/Steely Dan friends...hint: if you head out to the end, oh...about 41 minutes in, you get into the 'NY Broadway Review'-style of Fagen. REALLY GREAT jazz!

Yea...it wasn't broken out, so you get to skip around in it - as I said, for DanFans - but the live jazz piece at 41 minutes in (you can skip right to it) is worth the listen! A Mancini piece, I think.

Very nice.

From the new Ayreon album. The video is neat cause it shows what was on Arjen Lucassen's mind when he wrote and recorded it, why he cast certain singers, etc.

LOL...and NR brings back old hangovers....
~~~~
'Wanna-Be-A-Rockstar, Mommy!' songs from 'Wanna-Be-Next-The-Next-A.M./SweetSixteen-RockSuperGroup, Daddy!'
~~~~
UFO and Blue Oyster Cult performed at some of the sh*ttier, kiddier venues (especially 'bad acoustic' locations) as opening acts toward the end of my Euro days. The earaches and headaches drove many to find pain relief through drug & alcohol abuse, but every now and then, a 'keeper' would appear - and I recall early versions of this (although I would never buy the albumWink)
How many people are familiar with how this song alone made all the famous 'cowbell' take-offs, the 'More Cowbell!' drives, and even spawned an SNL skit?Big smile
Sooooooo...when the move was made from Heidelberg to El Paso (yea, it was like moving to the moon), we started hearing the American Kiddie Kuntry Korner flavors in places with very bad acoustics...such as this gem, which actually made me turn around and pay attention to some country rock a lot more:
Wink
...but then again, catchy as either tune was on either side of the pond at precisely the same time, they were destined to remain nothing more than 'katchy kiddie tunes' to me - too simple, too commercial, too much 'fill the time with noise'.
I never bought the albums or the shirts, and you couldn't discuss them with me...

I remember when that Blue Oyster Cult album came out, the radio was advertising it using the Reaper guitar solo.  Made me buy the album.

Agreed, but the use of the cowbell made it timeless and even more famous.

Confused
Sick as heck this A.M....12:15. I can barely turn my head to the right - cannot turn it to the left at all.
Getting ready to take off for The Den, see some of the kids, pay my respects...and do a little work.
 
I feel really strange about this trip..my secretary doubled up on the car coverage and all of that...and I ended up with a pure-white-on-white with white license plates Yaris (one of my personal favorite cars) - but what is with all this 'dress Paw up in white'? Am I supposed to drive into a hole in the ground?Confused
And I'm going to my own home, but my assistant booked me a room with a view in Niagara Fallls, right on the Falls. Indoor pool and meals. She's known the fam for many years, knows my style. Why the extravagance? I'll be looking for holes that can swallow a Yaris.

Way back when time was on my side and rock music was still young and fresh, I just kinda dismissed this song.  But I recently "reheard" it, and now I like it a lot. 
 
 
 
It would go well in a mix next to this one---one I loved but had forgotten about:

This song was actually written by the lead singer as a tribute to one of his biggest musical influences, Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson. And if you just listened without paying attention, it could pretty much pass as a Tull song. My dad is a huge Tull fan, and I played it for him and he was really impressed as well.



And just to give an indicator of their more usual sound, here's one of their songs done in their typical prog metal style:

I bet he dances to it in private.LOLWink
