Dzimas,noticed your latest pic of "Endless Summer"I have a near pristine LP soundtrack for that flick that I found in a closet of our Frat House in Boston back in 79.It was opened but the vinyl looked like new.Before CD'S and such came along it was worth some money but don't know about it nowdays.We all loved the song"Six Pack" which starts out with the opening sounds of a Six Pack.I also had at one time the movie house size poster for it in several sections but I am not sure it still is somewhere in the nooks of my Apt.

I love the movie and the soundtrack.  It really captures the spirit of that era.  A relatively recent movie, "Riding Giants," showed some vintage surfing of the early days in Hawaii along with the lifestyle of the 60s, which inspired Laird Hamilton, which the film focuses on.

Listening to Nick Cave's Abbatoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus, which came as a very pleasant surprise a couple of years ago when I bought it.  Seems Nick experienced an epiphany as there is such a strong gospel feel to the songs, complete with backing chorus on the stunning My Beautiful World.  Very tempted to buy the live edition,

Any Richard Thompson fans out there?  I just received his newest and it's in my stack of new cds (either purchased or sent by friends who must be burning away like crazy).

Has anyone ordered the new springsteen live in Ireland?  Another one I must get.

so much and so little time.

So, what's you're favorite Freddy Mercury song?

Elton John song?


For me, Mercury: "Who Wants to Live Forever?" 

and John: "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word"

I don't have a particular favorite Elton John song, but I did feel that my understanding of the refrain in Rocket Man was very hard won.  In fact, I wonder how many people could parse, "Rocket Man, burning out his fuse up here alone" by simply listening to the song.  Before the internet, and absent owning the album in which lyrics were printed on the sleeve, I engaged in years of speculation about that line.  Sometimes I would hear it as "Rocket Man, turning out his foods in Avalon," sometimes as "Rocket Man, burning up his shoes in air balloon," and many other variations, all of which seemed teasingly close, none of which made much sense.

I used to have a roommate who really liked "Tiny Dancer," which I initally liked, but severe repetition didn't increase my liking.

I like the humor of "Social Disease," from the GBYBR album.

Elton John...

Probably Philadelphia Freedom...but only because of the mental image it produces for me every time I hear the song...not so much the song itself...   Letter Girls...High School... you get the idea...
