A cover of a song released 50 years ago next year.

TBS, had it on cassette and played it in my Mini all the time when I was stationed in the UK!

You can hear it in the street, see it in the dragging feet,
The word is getting out about control,
Spies they’ve come and gone, the story travels on,
The only quiet place is inside your soul.

“rock and roll” is already dead Jay. We now have the useless noise of hip-hop and an endless string of whining and electronically modulated “beautiful” people (of indeterminate sex) who have no talent BUT, they look good. Joe Walsh ain’t much to look at but he is a very talented man. If he were just starting out and he was trying to make it now in the music he would fail. So would Neil Young for that matter and many, many others who ain’t exactly blessed in the looks department. Talent doesn’t matter anymore in music. Now that I think about it, it is like politics in this country. It isn’t what you know or how good a leader you will be but it is all about how you look and WHAT you are, just like Obama.

Mahalo, brother Corbin.

The first song ever played on 96 Rock WKLS in 1974.

The second time that I saw the Who, Townshend said this song now belonged to the fans. And with the first few unmistakable, iconic notes, the crowd erupted in screams and yells of delight.
