    Country is to Western as Track is to Field.

    "Armstrong" by John Stewart

    Someone had to write a folk song about this. I still prefer Bowie's "Space Oddity" though.
  3. If you've been on Facebook, you've seen it - list 9 concerts you've seen and one you haven't, we'll guess the lie. Here's mine: Indigo Girls AC/DC George Clinton Aimee Mann Bruce Springsteen Sleater-Kinney Eddie Money Dave Matthews Band Pearl Jam The Black Keys

    Google does "Over The Rainbow"

    I like how it's accompanied by a suitably ersatz Dorothy.

    Cosmo Sheldrake may be the best name in music.

    Was looking to see if there is video for the 1993 Triangle Ball, and found this instead.

    Bagpipe not an alto sax

    Gotta admit that never crossed my mind (hard to imaging that song without a saxophone), but bagpipes could definitely work. Certainly appropriate.

    This is very elegant in look and sound. Love it.

    Grundig vs. Philips: Cassette Wars!

    Wow, I've never seen those Grundig things before. Wonder if they were like Beta, better but doomed.

    RIP Peter Tork of the Monkees.

    I love that the Monkees were revived in 1986 on MTV. And it wasn't a "reboot" with new actors trying to re-create the magic - they just showed the same episodes again.
  18. The Human Beinz song originally by the Isley Brothers - "Nobody But Me" is being used in a great Nike commercial. But I know it appeared in at least one other commercial a long time ago, maybe in the '80s. Anyone know what that was? I remember the lyrics were changed to reflect whatever they were selling: something like "Nobody cooks fish like we do. Nobody makes meat loaf like we do." But I don't think it was food.

  20. Linda Ronstadt hasn't sung in 10 years because of her Parkinson's disease. This video is a great look at how she's doing today, which can be summed up in two words: Acceptance Uncompromising She retains a huge fan base that really connected with her music and her struggle.

    "Stan and Ollie" (2018)

    Now if Abbott and Costello can get their own biopic...
  22. Billy Joel's version of "All Shook Up." He does a bang-up Elvis.
