    Jump in the Wayback Machine, set the year for 1965. This Bear was in a Creative Writing class in high skroll. The teacher, whom I think I had a "crush" on, commented to the class that we should tune in to a television special featuring a new singer named Barbra Streisand. I did. What a voice. Within a short period of time I owned all of the Streisand albums. This attached tune is probably my favorite Babs tune. Should note that I didn't feel as strongly about her work later in her career. Perhaps I just let her personality failings influence me. But as a young woman, she was amazing. This song is amazing.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    The title is a mis-nomer because all of Supertramp is the Very Best of Supertramp. I have a vynil of the double live album "Paris". I want to be buried with it.

    The Susan Boyle Experience

    Check out this video from "Britian's Got Talent". This kid is 17, his partner in the singing duo is 16. Same scenario as Susan Boyle (a few years ago).....kid looks dumpy, audience and judges roll their eyes, that irritating Simon dude wanders close to disgust with having to view their performance. Just like the Susan Boyle video this incredible performance brought tears to this Bear's eyes. Go ahead, revoke my "man card". This kid, performing while his hand was shaking, was freakin' awesome!

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Downloaded Counting Crows latest, "Underwater Sunshine." I need to listen to this a couple of times before I can form an opinion.

    "Amie." Why?

    Couple Stacks & Other Stuffe

    Catching-up a bit, here's a couple different stacks of CDs that this Bear took to the office. Some great stuff here.....

    Late April Stack
    Surfin' Safari (The Beach Boys)
    Wrecking Ball (Bruce Springsteen) - His newest, nice!
    Run, Devil, Run (Paul McCartney)
    Still Feel Gone (Uncle Tupelo)
    Essential Monkees (The Monkees)
    The Heart of Chicago (Chicago) (2 Discs)
    The Cat (Jimmy Smith)
    Essential Simon & Garfunkel (Simon & Garfunkel)
    All That You Can't Leave Behind (U2)
    Brian Setzer Orchestra (Brian Setzer Orchestra)

    Mid-May Stack
    The Best of Badfinger (Badfinger)
    Hard Candy (Counting Crows)
    Doo Wop Box (Various Artists) (4 Discs)
    The Argent Anthology (Argent)
    The Best of the Verve Years (Billie Holiday)
    Greatest Hits (The Cars)
    The Very Best Of..... (Jethro Tull)
    Blind Faith (Blind Faith) (2 Discs)
    Chicago Live (Chicago)
    Bat Out of Hell II - Back Into Hell (Meat Loaf)
    The Capitol Collection (The Kingston Trio)
    Morph the Cat (Donald Fagen)
    _____

    Considering jump-starting a thread for "Concept Albums". Still a few being released nowadays but many moons ago, especially the 1970s, concept albums were a regular staple of releases. A couple groups that come to mind would be Yes and The Moody Blues. The Moodys' Days Of Future Passed is a great listen, especially on a quiet Sunday morning. My guess is that nobody in this crowd is familiar with Earth Opera's American Eagle Tragedy.

    Nerd Rock

    I like music and lyrics that are more complicated than the likes of the majority of pop music. Here's Bishop Allen's ballad about the USS Monitor. The Monitor


    I also really like: Busted Heart and Corazon. I mean, who writes love songs to pianos? Nerds rewl.

    If you like some nerd rock, I recommend checking out the album Of Great and Mortal Men from Christian Kiefer which has a song telling a short, historically accurate song for each of the first 43 presidents (the album was released before the 2008 elections).

    For some nerd rap, there's always MC Frontalot, and specifically his debut full-length album Nerdcore Rising.

    Honey

    My original intention was to submit this in the Lame Jam thread. But after reading through the listener comments I changed my mind. The song obviously hits a strong chord with those who had a loved one pass away. I found it too tuff to make fun of it because the song seems to be very personal with the commenters.

    Awww, I like that song. I can probably sing it from memory. When we were younger my sister, mom, and I would act out and dance to this song. Sad song with happy memories.
