What Was In My Head When I Awoke

"Sitting on a park bench, eyeing little girls with bad intent" ~ Ian Anderson

I can't think of any reason why I woke up with this song running rampant through my head, unless it's all the press coverage of Michael Jackson.



Stay tuned for more frivolity directly.

Tull. One of my all-time faves. I love the way Ian Anderson writes, composes AND sings. He's got a real way with words, very poetic, playful, meaningful as needed. His composing seems to me to have a medieval feel to it and I thought the makers of "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" should have gotten Anderson to write the music for them. And his voice is immediately identifiable (not so astounding really in and of itself) and right in my wheelhouse. I'm currently seeking to learn "Two Fingers" from War Child for a church talent show (wish me luck---I don't play much guitar these days).

Incidently, at least a few of his albums have thick religious references. I'm not sure if he's one who leans left or right, but one song from the same Aqualung album "Oh God" (I believe it's called) begins in this way:

People what have you done,
Locked Him in His golden cage,
Made Him bend to your religion,
Him resurrected from the grave?

He is the god of nothing, if that's all that you can see..."


Remind you of anyone?
