  1. His singing sounds great from those snippets. I didn’t expect that. I’m really looking forward to it.
  2. If I have to choose, eternal damnation. Without a doubt.
  3. Now we’re talking! That and Lift me up.
  4. The years is 2024. Donald Trump’s second second term is almost over and he decides to radically escalate the trade war with China with a nuclear bomb. In the U.K., as the world unravels, a family is trying to cope with the consequences. That’s the premise of the great new series “Years and Years”. I’ve only watched 2 episodes but I’m finding it really good. It’s the kind of thing Black Mirror could be right now if it hadn’t gone so bad so quickly. For those in the U.K., it’s on BBC iplayer. For those elsewhere I believe it may be on HBO.
  5. Yes, poor baby! And poor me because his favourite thing to bite are my fingers!
  6. Hanging out with my son as my wife tries to get some sleep this morning (brutal night). Let me see what he thinks of a series of random 5... 1. Used cars - he’s more interested in getting in all fours and rocking back and forth. He’s about to crawl. 2. Hungry Heart - he’s looking at me smiling as I sing it to him. We’ve got some leg movement! 3. Santa Claus is Coming to Town - the green and blue caterpillar has now joined the listening party. She looks like she’s enjoying it even though he’a sinking his only two teeth into her head. We’ve got laughter as I sing the sax solo! 4. Froggie went a-courtin’ - Had to stop writing this as the infectious tune meant we had to get up and dance to this one. Smiles and drool all around! 5. I’m going down - (I cheated and skipped I wish I were blind) I think he’s getting sleepy. Clearly this is a subject matter that doesn’t yet mean a lot to him. He’s pressing his head against my chest so I guess it’s nap time. Hello Sunshine to wind down.
  7. I agree. I liked it better before but it’s never been a good song for me. Now, when that female chorus comes in I just have to hit stop. I can’t take it.
  8. Another round! 1. Independence Day (Live 75-85 box set) - I remember first listening to this and being too young to understand it. I eventually did. The Big Man sounds sweet and plaintful. 2. One way street - Bruce had a knack for soulful tunes back in the day. Love this and, again, love the Big Man on it. 3. Girls in their Summer Clothes (Winter Mix) - A good alternate version. A solo by the Big Man would have fit the song perfectly. 4. Living Proof (MetLife Stadium 2016) - I like the lyrics but Bruce went through a period there where he struggled with melody. This one is a melodic disaster. 5. Kitty’s Back (Hammersmith) - The band could really jam back then. It’s incredible that they can hold this song together so perfectly.
  9. I really liked it at first but when they introduced a character (Vee, I think) that was a really cartoonish villain, I lost interest. I kept on watching and somewhere mid 3rd season it just completely lost me.
  10. I meant Tracks 4. But if you love Rocky Ground that much, I’m afraid I just can’t proceed with the conversation in amicable terms.
  11. Let’s see... Cover Me, Rendezvous, American Beauty, Working on a Dream, Rocky Ground (sweet Jesus, how I hate Rocky Ground!)... This thread has taken a bit of a turn to negativity and I fear I might be to blame... Let’s see, I do think 57 Channels is a great song and that Tracks for has some of Bruce’s finest work!
