And let's not forget his recent pairing of the song live with "You've Really Got a Hold on Me".

Is this guy the Einstein of pop music, or what?

Sometimes I'll also get down on my knees and sniff the empty office chairs of my coworkers... This has to be the funniest thing I've read in ages, many thanks. It will stick in my mind forever. Thanks Martin, that's nice. And by the way, most of the credit for that one goes to Jack Handey, not the ...

I guess I'm with Steve on this one. I'm also a computer programmer, and sometimes late at night at my office building I'll walk around the empty cubicles and steal pens, spare change, and once and awhile a candy bar or leftover cookie. I guess, like Steve, I'm kind of just expanding my professional ...

Here, here.

I imagine he did the same thing on he and Diana's second or third date.

I'm sorry, that was not necessary.

Sorry Paul if I came off a little cutesy. I agree with your assessment wholeheartedly. If I could ever come close to approaching your critical analysis I'd offer my perspective on another EC song.

This House is Empty Now

If I remember correctly, this track is almost all Burt. I do know that in a recent interview, however, Elvis names this song as a precursor of some sort to You Left Me in the Dark. In any case, I love it. The long meandering verses are particularly inviting; as well as the rather high pitched lead i...

Did anyone just see Elvis on Dead Ringers New Year Special. They were doing a scene in a chemist shop with an impressionist doing Ozzy Osborne. Unsuspecting members of the public came in and were on film then Elvis suddenly appeared. It didn't seem to be a celebrity appearance, it just seemed like ...

While I admire the chutzpah it took for Morris to recognize North for the masterpiece that it is, when I see him mention Westerberg in the same breadth it kind of takes the wind out of his sails...

I was in my condo in Chicago the other night eating Cheetos and watching porno when the guy in the next condo started blasting Moby. It kind of freaked me out so I put down the lotion, went to the CD player and put on Punch The Clock. I then made a sandwich and fell asleep to the History Channel. Ki...

Donnie Van Zandt. Ronnie doesn't produce anymore. He gave it up after producing Lennon's last disc, As it Turns Out, Jesus Is Much Bigger Than Me, Y'all . Ya Know I was pretty soused when I made that post. I knew I should have stuck with my first gut instinct to pull out a Molly Hatchet reference.

Never mind showering, he needs to step off the Stairmaster and back into the studio to record that Southern Fried Rock record he promised us back in his journal!

I heard that Ronnie Van Zandt is producing the new one.
