I think the ziggy stardust era of bowie is my favorite.

Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it's been."_____ the grateful dead.

I remember doing a job on the island of Arran, staying at a B&B run by some New Agey hippies. They really loved The Steve Miller Band. Came back one evening and he was listening to Serenade in some kind of meditative trance. :lol: Needless to say, I immediately procured Fly Like an Eagle for my own. Don't think I felt quite the same effect, but still... I like.



OT: Listening to Son Lux. Heard Sleep on BBC 6 and am now very much into Son Lux. You should all be into Son Lux, too. :P The drumming in this is so cool.



Incidentally, just noticed that both tracks have the words "wake up" in them.

I mean, I'm trying. It's hard, though, innit?

If anyone gets a chance to watch the documentary supersonic i highly recommend it.

This song was written by Noel during one of the brother's many disputes. They were in San Francisco and Noel had walked out on the band after a gig. He proceeded to go on a 3 day methamphetamine binge. Where he met a girl who talked him out of leaving the band and end his binge. They ended up just talking all night at a park she enjoyed when she was a kid and drank strawberry lemonade until the sun came up Lol.
The lyrics couldnt be more straight forward.

Good song though.

I was never fond of Abba. That song didn't help that feeling improve. :nono:

These songs are both about the same woman Cathy Smith. She was dating levon Helm in the mid 60's. Actually had a baby they nicknamed "the bands baby' because anyone of the members of the band could of been the father.

She went on to date gordon lightfoot in the early 70's. Sundown is about the toxic relationship with her and their addictions to alcohol and heroin.

She was relatively unknown until she was in the media as the person who injected John Belushi with the speedball that ended up killing him. She did some jail time for it.
