Now I've got that nice guitar solo stuck in my head.  Could be worse, could be much, much worse.

It's Dickey Betts at his betts, I mean, best, though the little trivia gem in that one is that studio musician Les Dudek played a large part of the original studio cut.

Yes, if you have to have a tune stuck in your head, well thats a good one.

the betts/at betts...good pun....dudek and other studio ppl. never get the credit they deserve.

    Epistrophy,

    If you ever get the chance, use rt. 62 from AZ. to S.cali.

    very nice relaxing ride,

    Funny you should say that, because I have taken that road.  I love roads where you can go for hours without seeing another car.  And I was born a ramblin' man.

        Epistrophy, where you been ?

         

        the hendrix reference reminded me,

        a freind had 4/5 on a pic 5 game,

        he had 6 instead of 9    ( i don't mind if 6 turns out to be 9)

         

        I told him about the song, but he never heard of it, even though he was a movie usher,

        and the tune was part of the soundtrack on easy rider.

        thanks for reminding me, Smile

         

        @ Ridgerunner,

        while making this post i had to use that lifesaver thing, thanks, man.

        No problema, mi amigo.

            What was that,      ?

            somthing like ''interdigiant quotation mark & the mysterians ?

            did i get that right ?

             

            Yes, one is a lonely #

            but sometimes its the # that completes the JP.

            Yeah that ? was for lead vocals Rudy Martinez, who also is believed to have wrote 96 tears as well. Hit #1 on the Billboard hot 100 in "66".

              When I was in kindergarten and we were learning how to count, I would be very upset when they started counting at 1. They had to start at 0 for me to be satisfied.

              I like to start counting at bleen - George Carlin once said, "Scientists have discovered a new number between 6 and 7, and it's called bleen."

              Just reminded of a few more number-related song references:

              Revolution 9 - The Beatles [unlike the well-known "Revolution" also from the White Album, this was the one that can only be described as experimental music, with ranson noises and a voice reapting the phrase "Number 9, number 9, number 9"]

              #9 Dream - John Lennon

              I'm Eighteen - Alice Cooper

              Who knew that if you combined The Beatles with John Lennon solo you'd get the great golfer Vincent Furnier, a/k/a, Alice Cooper.

                Whoa, freaky!

                I went to type "random noises" above and had not one, but two typo's, each time hitting the key right next to it.

                So I wound up with the word "ranson" which is very close to "Manson" and Charles Manson is believed to have been inspired by "Helter Skelter" which is also on the White Album.

                Too bad he didn't focus on a nice little ditty like "Rocky Raccoon" or "Martha My Dear" instead.

                  Revolution 9, was revolutionary for the time, because many of the tracks were played BACKWARDS, to achieve the final desired cut.

                    Cheers to you as well, McGinn.

                    George Martin was one of the most creative producers ever.  As far back as "Tomorrow Never Knows" which was on "Revolver" (so 1966) he did bizzaro but creative and effective stuff like that.  George Harrison's solo on that song has an other-wordly sound, and that's because it was played back with the tape running backwards and re-recorded that way.

                    They always had that "Paul is dead" urban legend that somehow came up and they toyed around with it as well - on Revolution 9, there is a part that if you play it backwards (which can only be done on a good ol' album and turntable with a needle, or diamond stylus, as it were) the voice says, "I buried Paul."

                    I tried it as a kid, and it does appear to say that, but it also appears to say, "Unintelligible mumble" basically.

                    The other ingenious George, the aforementioned Carlin, also made reference to this phenomenon and said, "The Beatles' latest record, when played backward at a slow speed, says, 'Dummy!  You're playing it backwards at a slow speed!'"

                    Later in his career, at live shows he changed the last part to, "when played backwards, it f**ks up your needle."

                    Brilliant.

                      When George Martin and the Beatles collaborated, it was the most successful and innovative music ever conceived! I don't think any other

                      artist or group, has ever come close to their combined talent.

                       

                      Loved Carlin! I was saddened to hear about his passing.

                        Just some random thoughts I wanted to share with the people out there.There is two things that's un imaginable.The first one being the number zero which represents nothing in existence.And the last one is my favorite infinity.Plus and minus heaven and hell.Plus will go up minus will go down.How do u wanna live ur life?being positive is representing infinity u can gain forever.But there is no infinity for negative zero is the last number before gaining.Think about infinity for a second.And again people these are random thoughts I wrote this without erasing.Thats how I write freestyling all posts.So with that said if ur gonna pick numbers avoid the zero in life .Choose infinity it's unexplainable.So is zero but I'm really alive and have experienced spiritual things.Im out of my mind lol

                        Hi Process,

                        I'd like to offer my professional opinion that you are indeed out of your mind.  I'm not a psychiatrist, but I did stay at a Holiday Express...

                        Just kidding, especially since you included your lol at the end.

                        I agree that there is something vaguely weird or mystical about numbers, with zero certainly being no exception.  Zero is the mathematical equivalent of nihilism

                        Nothingness is a bit hard to construe, at least for me.  Give me something, even if it's a mildly amusing story or a mildly crafted beer, but don't give me nothingness.

                        Although nothingness has the advantage of easy portability.  I changed my mind.  Bartender, two more rounds of nothingness, please.

                        Now I've officially joined you as out of my mind, but I blame the pitchers of nothingness.  Whoo hoo!  Here's to nothing!

                          Epistrophy,

                          Thanks, I've had Neun und neunzig luft ballons stuck in my head all day (it first came out in German, or mostly was in German). Was Nina a cutie pie or what?

                          Regarding zero - I played on a summer baseball team local level, and we never did put nine guys on the field, all we had was eight. The newspaper wanted a name for each position for box scores so the coach created a player ' Noone ' - No one.

                          Well at the end of the season someone from the league who had never left the office or went to a game wanted to give 'Noone' the Golden Glove award for not making any errors.

                          Scared

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            Well at the end of the season someone from the league who had never left the office or went to a game wanted to give 'Noone' the Golden Glove award for not making any errors.

                            Coin,

                            That is absolutely beautiful.  Noone was exemplary player, not one error on the field, and zero arrests off it.

                            Nina was very much a cutie pie - I always imagined her German version as being sweet nothings she was whispering in my ear instead of being about nuclear annihalation.

                            Oh, Nina, tell me again about how St. Petersburg was vaporized - Russia, though, please, not Florida.  Come on, I have relatives there, for God's sake!

                            I think I actually prefer her German version because it's more mysterious, and when I say mysterious, I mean both the sound of her voice and also, "What the hell is she saying about Captain Kirk?"
