I was just thinking that the only one I would take to a desert island now is 'Melt Away.'   I have no use for 'My Generation' on any dang desert island.  Yet, I voted in the opposite order, didn't I?  I was trying to think...if that song didn't happen to be there and be so good at the time...  this is another fine mess Larry's contests have gotten me into!

From that really big shew - just two hours away from here:

Not one of the songs in battle this week, but:

Not forgetting the man doing the pounding to make this a great band!

I never saw or heard The Who live (and I still have my hearing).

John B -- You can always change your vote. I won't tell anyone.

bonnie -- I like your Cold Chisel and the Go-Go's, of course, but feel I must point out for the record that Cold Chisel's Breakfast at Sweethearts was their second album. As you know, their first was Cold Chisel, which included that "Khe Sanh" song many people like.

Al -- You might appreciate this cartoon. The caption below it did not win the New Yorker caption contest, to my profound sorrow.

Whoops, I'm not only upside down, but also back to front.  

This reminds me of do-wop week ...

Queen are one of the great rock bands in history, but I think their first two albums too often get overlooked.

Queen's 1973 self titled debut is a brilliant mix of the pomp, pop, and hard rock.   It's often forgotten, but early 1970s Queen were heavier than Zeppelin and Purple.

Living in the future can do that to a person.

On the subject of Queen, some fans were upset that an actor named Rami Malek was chosen to play Freddie Mercury in the upcoming Bohemian Rhapsody movie. He was best known for playing a "mentally-ill genius hacker" on the Mr. Robot program.

Being an actor and the movies being the movies, he may make the fans happy. This is from the movie's trailer:

When we did "Their Last Album", one of the songs was by Buffalo Springfield. These two Neil Young songs are from their first album, Buffalo Springfield (1966). The original versions are hard to find on YouTube.

"Do I Have To Come Right Out And Say It" (pardon the crappy sound)

"Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing" (live at the Monterey Pop Festival)
youtube.com/watch?v=juwKfr6pyiM

Both songs, of course, should be heard as originally intended. It's interesting to see that their first album only reached #80 on the US album chart. Their last two albums and their Retrospective compilation didn't do any better than #42, although Retrospective has since gone platinum.

I'm with you on the Beatles' debut album, Deb. 

But that clip isn't them. 

Here's the whole album...

After seeing the teaser trailer, I'm sold on Malek as Freddie Mercury.   Frankly, I'm glad they didn't go the Sacha Baron Cohen route.

Okay, here's one that has to be from a first album.  Not long before this, the only sustained noises Michael was making probably including wailing, grizzling and howling.

And you guys need to stop asking me for the lottery results ... it doesn't work like that.

Twice, now. I have to start reading the fine print. I also had a funny feeling something didn't sound right.
Thnx, Darren.

Gold?  Runaway winner...The WHO...who continue to talk about 'My Generation'.  I still hope I die before I get old.  NOT old yet.  Neither, for that matter, is the song...in fact...it's the youngest song on this week's playlist.  Solid gold to NOT make you feel old.

Silver?  Brian proved emphatically that he COULD "make it alone"...that THAT was, indeed, him.  'Brian Wilson'?  'Kokomo'?  I do have a preference.  Not that I entirely dislike Kokomo.  To the contrary.  But... ... ...Melt Away works miles upon miles better for me on many levels.

Bronze?  And a strong 3rd place finish to one of 3 Elvis's who've impressed me over the years...1 a skater and 2 of 'em...music guys.  Almost good enough for a 2nd place finish this week but... ... ...not quite.  Little snips of the song sound rather unfinished.  He'd do better.

Dead last?  I lose. You lose.  We all lose.  This was my first Beach Boys album...because Surfin USA was always sold out...for about a year.  This song is one of many reasons why the Surfin Safari l.p. was always such a disappointment and an almost total let down/bring down.  Horrible lead vocals.  Rancid.

Ya...I'm back...although I'm about to get VERY busy ... so... ... ...

That said...nice to be here with y'all.

No sign of her here Larry...and I have moved further north [about 5 1/4 hours worth]...but also further east [say 2 1/4 hours time-wise].  She may still be getting over the sad fact that Vegas knocked off Winnipeg in the NHL western final.  Anyway...just as long as Washington doesn't win.  There've been no legit victories in Washington now in close to 17 months...although there was a huge loss which dates back to November 2016.

Heads you win...tails you lose.  Life's a pisser!!!

Lisa is just taking a break these days and living her life. 

Before this season she had never missed a week.
