*bear pokes his head in, sees blood on the partitions, ponders*

Did one thing occur right here at this time? As a result of we’ve reached 744 feedback AND I HAVEN’T EVEN POSTED ANYTHING YET.

I imply, I’m nonetheless studying the article, and haven’t even touched the commentariat half, and I’m questioning what the hell is occurring.
OK, now that I’m performed, that is the form of writing that may get Tom a contract for a novel if he needs it. Even when I disagree with him.

First, the mental train. The riffs on the refrain nearly sound to me, surprisingly, like Free’s “All Proper Now”, caught on the primary three riffs. I love the pace of the singing right here, as a result of there’s loads to maintain tempo with. The rap is…properly, (sorry, Mother) it’s what it’s. I hate the “chickety-China” bit, although I’m undecided if it’s offensive of simply silly. And who amongst us doesn’t have a “tantric Sting” joke? So, that’s eh.

There are different elements which might be, I believe, intelligent. I’m sorry, Tom Breihan, however any reference to Bert Kaempfert is definitely kinda cool. Different elements don’t make sense, even while you learn them off a Google search as I did. I imply, I do know typically what a Sailor Moon is, and that the characters aren’t unhealthy, they’re simply drawn that method. And I’ve eaten a Snickers. None of that makes any sense to me why they’d be in a track along with his need for brand spanking new golf golf equipment. I want the track had been as tight because the raps are.

And but, I’m not mad on the goofiness. It’s simply that like everybody else, I’ve heard it loads, and so the wear and tear kinda interferes with the preliminary rush of enjoyable you bought in 1998. Somebody turned me on to BNL someday after the millennium, lengthy after the hits landed. And I don’t thoughts the fellows within the bowling shirts with an uncommon perspective on pop-rock, of blending the considerate with the absurd and the goofy. I wouldn’t need to go to Petersborough with Tom anytime quickly, however to be mad at BNL is counterproductive to me. I personal their albums, so in my head they made be doing one thing proper.

So what number of Canadians signed up for accounts at this time? I’m gonna sift by means of the wreckage, assist a number of folks up (I get the sensation one among TNOCS’s founding characters is wounded to the core at this time, studying all this), and begin mopping up.

“One Week” is a 5, and on a superb day a bit increased. Tom, your antidote is developing on Monday in Fast Hits. Must ask, although: what can be the completely different between your track at this time, and my track Monday, which is, let’s consider, all new and radical and stuff? It’s solely a pair levels of separation between the 2 songs.

One thing to consider, whereas Toronto experiences a run on Aspirin (as Bayer is named up there).

It appears to be like like somebody severed an artery down right here…

(BTW, the Tulsa quote, for the uninitiated, is from a Waylon Jennings track from 1971, a #16 nation hit known as “(Don’t Let the Solar Set on You) Tulsa”. The album is best recognized for the title observe, although, a #5 nation/#94 pop hit…)
