  1. Get the Japanese version if you can - it has IWHIFYL from the Geffen LP and the single edit of Foolin' Myself. It also has The Rock Stops Here, Almost Paradise, Long Live Rock and Roll, and the alternate mix of Brand New Year. It does not have the live version of Ecstasy. And the audio quality is even bettter.
  2. That video is incredible! Bernie, thanks so much!
  3. In my home town here in WV, there's a CVS across the road catty-cornered from the Walgreens. This Walgreens used to be a Rite-Aid, where I had an account. When it was merged into Walgreens, my account got merged into one from some guy in Arizona with the same first and last name AND birthdate. After two attempts of them trying to fix this for me (which took at least 45 minutes each time), I stopped dealing with them. I used to use a local independent store which of course went out of business. I've also noticed a Lowe's/Home Depot redundancy in some towns.
  4. I too have always loved your videos. Glad to see you back.
  5. Craig, I was just thinking of that solo while I was mowing the grass this evening! Let me submit this while we're on the subject - solo begins around 2:37.
  6. Money Down, hands down. With You In My Life (it's like When I'm 64 but with trumpets and tuba instead of clarinets and bass clarinet!) Goin' Nowhere Tonight (but I do like the bridge)
  7. You really got me good with that one, LC! And I was checking back today for more details...
  8. I know of Steve Simels from a powerpop blog of his that I used to read occasionally. He has had his own band in the past... anyone ever heard of his music? Didn't think so. Practically no one has. Steve, if you could write even one song that is half as good as BATC, I might find your opinions worthy of consideration. But you can't.
  9. James, regarding America - don't you mean "you can do magic" instead of "could it be magic"? Other than that, totally agree with you.
  10. I don't know who made the meme, but I was so glad that they included Fresh with all these other great albums.
  11. I would rate those two covers from Winter Dreams as an "A". As for Caroline, No - I really, really like how Eric repeated the B section of the song (Oh Caroline, you break my heart, I want to go and cry...) instead of fading too soon like Brian did. Now it sounds more like a complete song, and the accompaniment and overall mood are perfect. LC, thanks for posting that live version of On Broadway! Regarding the two non-originals from the Geffen album - are those really covers, meaning were they first recorded by someone else? Or was EC the first to record them? I wish Eric would have covered Tin Soldier by Small Faces and put it on the too-short Tonight You're Mine album!
  12. Performance of Jessie's Girl from "The Song" that ran on the Circle network.
  13. That Thing You Do! is my favorite movie of all time! I pretty much lost interest in pop music after 1989, but I have heard some newer acts on "Little Steven's Underground Garage" on the satellite radio that I really like such as the Connection, Kurt Baker, the Dollyrots, and Soraia.
  14. OK, I'll bite... 1. Martha 2. Mary Ann 3. Pam 4. Chrissy 5. I know these two are from Gomer Pyle USMC, but I can't remember either one. 6. Don't know who these are. 7. Mrs. Partridge 8. Peg 9. Miss Jane Angelica Thrift (a/k/a Wrangler Jane) 10. Lori
  15. Agreed, but the guy says that Eric is in the R&R HOF.
  16. 5. Reason to Try 4. Haven't We Come a Long Way 3. End of the World 2. Sleep With Me 1. SPOTLIGHT
  17. Ran across this a few minutes ago:
  18. I Reach For the Light (as well as Penny Lane) had a piccolo trumpet in it, not a fluegelhorn. I apologize for nit-picking. I agree with Kirk's list except I would flip 3 and 4, 7 and 8, and 9 and 10.
  19. You'll have to start calling people pencil-necked geeks now.
