The Boy, in the spirit of scientific enquiry, got my iPod and randomly selected an album for us all to listen to. The Eagles Greatest Hits.

I had forgotten that, despite all the coke-fuelled, self-indulgent toss-pottery, The Eagles' music is pretty damn good.

I used to like the Eagles until I heard a lyric in one of my Steely Dan records:

Turn up the Eagles the neighbours are listening


Now that could be an ironic reference to the rivalry between the Dan and the Eagles or it could be they just want to obscure the noise of passion which was going on in this particular song.

I still like Desperado.

The Presidents Of The United States Of America's first album, it's really good to have on in the background.

The Weird Al cover of Lump is also pretty good :haha:

Wow. It looks like I killed this thread. Oh well, a little more beating won't hurt it any more.

I'm putting together a Christmas station on pandora.com. It's very frustrating, it keeps trying to put non-Christmas music in there. Anyway, I discovered this Jackson Browne song, Rebel Jesus. I think some of us Venganzites will find it interesting. I haven't decided whether I like it yet, but I'm glad I heard it.

Happy Monkey! :jack:
