Current listening: a playlist of rather gross American Rock from the 70s and early 80s. We have the marvellously overwrought Styx with ‘Come Sail Away’! We have Rush (okay, so it’s gross Canadian Rock too, and come to think of it I don’t even know if Styx were American… and I’m GLAD I don’t know these details, you understand) with the classic ‘Spirit Of Radio’! And then back to Styx with the monumental ‘Lady’! Yes! I have been watching Freaks And Geeks again! Yay!
Thankfully listening to ‘Lady’ I don’t have Nick reading the lyrics over the top, and my geek lair is not filled with candles, but hey… you cant have everything, right? Sadly though the complete version of ‘Spirit Of Radio’ has that awful cod-reggae section in the middle of it. What the hell is THAT about? It would be a classic Pop song if it weren’t for that, it really would. It would be up there with the Velvet’s ‘Rock and Roll’. No, really, it would. But that aberration in the middle, man, it DESTROYS the song. I wonder what Nick did on his drum kit when he was playing along to that track and it got to that part? Maybe he reached over and nudged the needle over a bit.
C was wondering if there was any Freaks and Geeks fan-fic. I would suspect there may well be, but I really am not sure I wanna read it. But can I resist looking? Probably not.
When I was out on my bike this morning I was writing this great Freaks and Geeks article in my head, but I doubt I will ever actually get it down on ‘paper’. Such is life. I have written some great reviews and stuff on my bike, but they all disappear as soon as I get home. I think this may be some metaphor for something, but I’m fucked if I really care.
