Re: New song "No Flag" released June 5, 2020

keep thinking of Dr. Luther's Assistant....something linked to finding out he's making all this noise himself....

I REALLY like this new song.

Re: My Aim Is True Survivor (Round 12)

amazed, re allison, but, so, next round. if detectives wins..."not really MAIT," therefore redshoes wins either way?! now, to tell the truth, r.s. is my final preference, if only for the lines "I won't get any older Now the angels wanna wear my red shoes" for me the best descript...

Re: My Aim Is True Survivor (Round 8)

Yes, depends on when. I heard MAIT first and could tell that something or other was going on, something worth keeping an eye on, and you can just imagine what that made TYM sound like when it arrived. Yikes!

Re: Little Richard RIP

Also a reminder of just how utterly nuts rock and roll seemed as it began. Years ago, I showed my son one of the ed sullivan beatles shows that has all the other acts. we plowed through the magicians and davy jones in oliver and plate spinners and so on. Then the beatles came on and my son [maybe ar...

Re: Get Happy!! Survivor - Round 7

I haven't been able to play this round at all, but it is interesting that the still-surviving tracks are all now less interesting to me in the absence of the ones that have been eliminated. It is as if the "better songs" are getting worse.

Proof, in part, of a great album?

I don't stand accused, I stand confused - how were two out in one round? Was it a draw? Fair enough if so. Wow. I guess the cover version had to go early... though there's a more famous cover version still high up as a famous Elvis song. Shiiiiiiiiiiiit.... seems the thing skipped from round 3 to r...
