    I have one of their albums, Dreams Dreams or something like that. I haven't played it in years, but there are a couple of great songs on it.
  3. Manson Family + Up With People = Polyphonic Spree
  4. Ray Charles Neil Young Stevie Wonder Bob Dylan Jeff Beck Ray Davies
  5. Has anyone heard State Songs by John Linnell? I found an advance copy at a yard sale. He wrote a song for a bunch of states, but they weren't THE state songs, just weird little ditties with a state name in them. There are 16 tracks on this CD, but I read that he completed all of the states. Woman says, "I thought he was with you." Woman says, "I thought he was with you." They slowly back away from him At best he's very interesting His brushes with success were just an accident No one likes New Hampshire Man Broken-hearted old man of New Hampshire Flower-sniffing poet of New Hampshire Charming witty drunk Gate-crashing parasite Self-pitying, embittered, morose New Hampshire Man Woman wonders, "Who's your itchy friend?" Woman says, "I thought he was with you." Woman says, "I thought he was with you." They slowly back away from him At best he's very interesting His brushes with success were just an accident No one likes New Hampshire Man No one likes New Hampshire Man. Maine ------They Might Be Giants Relaxing on my* hands and knees Relaxing on my* face Reclining in the bear-trap of its tender warm embrace Glazed with coniferous green Glazed with excitement and dread Exhausted from oversleep Awake but still in bed The shaving razor's rusty but the sting brings you exactly back to Maine Is** the world that went south Maine Is** a punch in the mouth Maine At the top of the chart Has crushed my evil heart Maine Is the devil you know Maine Is the heaven below Maine At the top of the chart Has crushed my evil heart I love you anyway (I love you anyway) I promise there's no other state (there's no other state) But only if you stay away (but only if you leave) And leave me to my ugly state*** (me to my ugly state) And give me back my evil heart so I can see you as you are in Maine Is the world that went south Maine Is a punch in the mouth Maine At the top of the chart Has crushed my evil heart Maine Is the poison you love Maine Is the hell from above Maine At the top of the chart Has crushed my evil heart South Carolina ------They Might Be Giants The other day my neighbor has a dented bike Second day he called me from intensive care Says he needs a picture of the dented bike For the evidence of what a wreck he had Accident Accident Lift that fork, eat that snail Garcon summoned, have a new cocktail Lift that fork, eat that snail Garcon summoned, have a new cocktail Crash my bicycle Crash my bicycle In a big South Carolina wreck I crash my bicyle Crash my bicycle Crash my bicycle In a big South Carolina wreck I crash my bicyle And I won some damages and they were punitive By which I mean the punishment was damaging It crushed my head It crushed my head Garcon, where's my drink?

A blimey state! Ahoy there! Avast there! Ahoy there me hearties!" When the rising tide engulfs the shore And the waves roll over Arkansas Will the ship return to anchor there And replace the sunken state? For the ship was shaped like Arkansas And the hull was formed without a flaw Every detail had been reproduced On a scale of 1:1
  6. I would agree that Zappa is my favorite, followed in no particular order by Adrian Belew David Hidalgo Jeff Beck Dave Davies Steve Hillage Steve Cropper Neil Young Steve Stills Tom Verlaine Richard Lloyd the guy in Talk Talk Hendrix/Page/Clapton Albert King Albert Lee Andy Partridge/ David Gregory Richard Thompson Roy Buchanon John Fogerty Sonny Sharrock John McLaughlin Robert Quine Don Rich Eddie Hazel Ernie Isley Teeny Hodges Smoky Hormel Nels Cline Too many more to get them all. The lists in the Guitar Player and Rolling Stone are ridiculous, Adrian Belew wasn't ranked in either one. Gimme a break. th
  7. That one line in Lady Marmalade is pretty good. I have the 45 of Shock The Monkey in German, and 99 luftballoons in German. Also, I Want To Hold Your Hand in German. I Think We're Alone Now by Lene Lovich in Japanese is pretty cool.
  8. Check out The Beastie Boys In Sound From Way Out, Money Mark,Dirty Dozen Brass Band,Sly & The Family Stone,The Meters,Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Beck-Midnite Vultures,Tower of Power,MFSB,Maceo Parker,Ray Charles ,James Brown, I could go on and on, but I wont.
  9. They are an excellent Texas Swing band. Think of Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys. Google 'em.
  10. Meatloaf sang on a Nugent album before he hit it big with Bat Out Of Hell. Andy Summers was in The Animals before the Police. I guess that's not a lead singer, but oh well.
  11. The apron would have to have the Wonder Bread logo.
  12. I wish Bread was still together so I could be a BreadHead and follow them around selling grill cheeses.
  13. Tumbling Dice? It's more of a rock tune. The biggest country crossover I can think of is Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music by Ray Charles. Yeah, the Stones had a ton of them: Dear Doctor, You Got The Silver, etc. Phish does a great version of Rocky Top.
  14. Buffalo Springfield/ Iron Butterfly (When I was 9) Styx Blue Oyster Cult Rush/Uriah Heep Van Halen Doobie Bros.
