I almost played Gimme Some Money in a gig!


Jenny, I HAVE played '(Listen to the) Flower People' at a gig. Many times. 

Classic track from Tap's first album Spın̈al Tap Sings (Listen to the) Flower People and Other Favorites (1967). 

Sadly now out of print. 

Listen to the Flower People

Maybe I can find a Japanese pressing.   Apparently, they're pretty popular there.

However you want to call it, some of the bands seem to have managed to stick around far past their expiration date.  Nickleback comes to mind, they're a massively popular rock bland.

amen.  His will be done. ?

by the way.  let's back up and go back to your comment on Poison.  You assert that they are not real metal.  But...if you wanted, couldn't they serve you up a slice of cherry pie just as good as Warrant could?  I mean...why isn't Poison credible to metal purists, such as yourself, kds?   Don't they ...uh, rock well enough?  Don't they, uh, like to party enough ?   You're not dissing their hairstylist are you?  or their make-up person, because if that's the reason, you know, someone could make a mistake booking the wrong hairstylist or make-up person, in a busy rock n roll metal band's hectic life, so that's not really fair, is it !

I think Poison is a very good hard rock band.  They had a sense for writing great hooks, which is why they were massively popular in their day.  

My saying they are not a metal band isn't a knock on them, as I like them a lot.  

They just don't have a heavy metal style.  

There's a huge difference between bands like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Metallica and bands like Led Zeppelin, Def Leppard, and Poison.

The only band at that time near that genre that I appreciated were the Georgia Satellites.

They were more of a rock band, with a bit of a southern rock vibe.

...if only GS were from Los Angeles instead, so without knowledge of irony or simile, they really DID want to tie the girl down with battleship chains, kds would've liked them more!

Darren, I'm a sucker for two of these songs (guess).  But I'm going to go slow with this vote.  Stay tuned.

Can I vote for Bonnie’s Songs this week, or perhaps even “Pilot of the Airwaves”?
