My Spotify favourites include Zevon’s “My Shit’s Fucked Up.”
Hockey season is almost upon us again.
That song is #7 in my iTunes play count ranking. Can’t believe it’s not higher than that, actually. Few songs get to me as thoroughly as that one does.
I get so mad when that song comes on and my expectations get dashed. Most sacrilegious appropriation of an iconic riff since Len’s Steal My Sunshine.
Send lawyers, guns and money,
The shit has hit the fan.
A “musical Tim Burton” and an absolute genius.
Even the younger adults (twenty- and thirty-somethings) claim most of the current offerings in popular music is absolute garbage. I agree.
By a strange coincidence, I was browsing in Bath’s HMV record store this afternoon, and I spotted the Warren Zevon Original Album set, five albums in a slip case, and grabbed it, as I only had his first album on vinyl, a white label copy, IIRC, and two downloaded tracks, Werewolves Of London, (of course), and Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner, so I couldn’t resist having a comprehensive collection of his works.
Gonna enjoy working my way through those.
Roland the Thompson gunner. Talkin’ about The Man.
