  1. All I know is that Real Man is his disasterpiece
  2. I'd take that any day over the folks here who pronounce our country 'Strayla
  3. I'm guessing the latter day WreckinG Ball song doesn't help your cause....
  4. I always thought it was exactly Bruce's intention in sequencing the two songs that way for that connection to be suggested
  5. Drive All Night has a similar effect on me also. Not quite in that category, there are also two up tempo solos that for me elevate their respective songs to other levels. The first is the one in Janey Don't You Lose Heart. The second is the Bobby Jean outro... that 'good luck, goodbye' line followed by that glorious soaring goosebump inducing sax is one of the reasons the BITUSA album led me to further explore the back catalogue
  6. To be fair, Duran's "Girls On Film" video had me drooling also...
  7. Hi I'm Bosstralian and I'm a Bruceaholic. I pay $12 a month for Spotify which gives me unlimited access to a large portion of the entirety of all recorded popular music, yet I largely use it to stream Bruce albums which I already own three physical copies of.
  8. .... while bowling maidens.... ....using exquisite wrist and finger spin...
  9. Taking Bruce at his word that he never did drugs, I must say at times he is the most stoned looking unstoned person I may have ever seen...
  10. I'm not smart enough musically to know which it was, but you both clearly agree / believe it was an overdub and that's what I find interesting. That they put that kind of thought and effort into something that eventually was a B Side suggests to me it was at some time seriously considered for the album. I wonder where in the sequence and what it may have lost out to?
  11. Can't speak for others, but I'd like to be an honorary New Zealander (at least for Sunday). Given our ODI record for the last 18 months to 2 years, I must admit I wasn't necessarily even expecting semi final action much less the final. But still sucks losing to the old enemy
  12. Cautious Man from TOL was already grappling with this desire for the road and it's impact on connections One night Billy awoke from a terrible dream calling his wife's name She lay breathing beside him in a peaceful sleep, a thousand miles away He got dressed in the moonlight and down to the highway he strode When he got there he didn't find nothing but road Billy felt a coldness rise up inside him that he couldn't name Just as the words tattooed 'cross his knuckles he knew would always remain At their bedside he brushed the hair from his wife's face as the moon shone on her skin so white Filling their room in the beauty of God's fallen light
  13. You've perfectly articulated my same inability to articulate what that mysterious 'it' is.
  14. I find you and others regularly changing your avatar pics more disconcerting than these name changes TBH
  15. I'm not sure how this didn't end the discussion. A lyric sheet to follow has often been handy with Bruce's music over the journey, but Palomino for me is the only song that is completely indecipherable without one due to the vocal.
