    Out of all of Bruce Hornsbyís hits, The Valley Road is also the one that resonated with me the most.

    And good call on the Mike and the Mechanics track. Out of all of their hits, that one seems to have fallen within the cracks. Itís largely forgotten today.

    HAHA, this is a no judgment zone.

    Also, if it makes you happy, enjoy it, man. Life is short.

    Recently, I actually heard both This Must Be the place and Love Will Tear Us Apart within days of each other on terrestrial radio, no less. The station: WXRT Chicago, an Adult Alternative Album rock (AAA) station. And they play several Phish tracks, FWIW, not just Free. Apparently, several Phish tracks were AAA radio hits even though Mainstream Rock Radio virtually ignored them.

    Phish shows in Chicago are a big deal, I have seen them there quite a few times. They always come out and put on a huge show there.

    Ironically, because you think midwest/west coast/northeast when you think Phish shows the best show I was ever in person for was New Years Eve in Miami, FL. At midnight they played 2001 and then right after that a marching band, maybe from The U, marched in followed by George Clinton and The Parliament Funcadelic. Was absolute insanity.

    Great song!

    True story, and you may be aware of this, Walter Egan once appeared on the Scrabble TV game show as a contestant. He sang a few bars of his track to Chuck Woolery (sp?) and the crowd to identify himself.

    A little trivia --- Woolery, the Ashland, KY native , was part of a duo called Avante Guard, who had a top 40 hit in, I believe, 1968 called "Naturally Stoned."

    I was not aware of that. Thank you.

    Also- it was written about Stevie Nicks? And she sings backing vocals on it? I think this may be true.

    Love it. My go-to karaoke song has been “Peg” by Steely Dan for going on 20 years.
    If I had to karaoke a Steely Dan Song it would be either Pretzel Logic or Doctor Wu
