    listened to it a couple of days ago, actually.
    that song actually caused me many nights of unrest. anyone who has seen Twister knows the song from when the gang first went out to chase some tornadoes...a character named Rusty played the song.
    at the time, i couldn't place my finger on the song, but knew it from somewhere. missed it in the credits. went home, went through almost my entire record collection. even looked at Deep Purples Fireball album...looked right at the title of the song, and went "nah." i think it was literally two years later before i actually figured it out!

    There'll always be a place in my heart for that band, as I met my wife at one of their concerts. M's white-boy-quasi-rap persona got a little old after 3 albums, but what a great sound they had.

    Here's my top 10 list of post 1968 rock n' roll songs (OK - the Hank Williams is sort of cheating) that run the gamut from recognition of the divine to a sense of longing.
    1. Beach Boys - God only knows
    2. Velvet Underground - What goes on / Beginning to see the light
    3. Al Green - Still in love with you
    4. Ace Frehley/Red House Painters - Shock Me
    5. Gibb Brothers / Gram Parsons /whoever else covered this - To love somebody
    6. The Jesus and Mary Chain - Just Like Honey
    7. Hank Williams/Mekons/whoever else covered this - Lost Highway
    8. Jonathan Richman - Roadrunner
    9. The Stooges - Down in the Street

    Best baseball related song: Jonathan Richman - Walter Johnson

    Well I knew you for a while
    and I thought that I could bring out
    the nicer and the smarter things
    that you have inside
    but you walk by the computer centre
    with this kid whose not up to your level at all
    you should have me
    walking by your side
    now he's a hippie
    old hippie Ernie
    meanwhile, I'm straight
    and I'd like to take his place
    he's not so deep
    hippie Ernie
    I'm straight and I want to take his place
    dear I'm straight
    I'm straight
    I'm
    I'm straight and I could easily take his place
