Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/21/15 1:13pm Parq:

Welfare recipients in Cadillacs were a popular middle American trope in the last decades of the 20th Century. Jerry Reed referred to it in his early-70s top-40 hit "When You're Hot, You're Hot", and Roy Blount invoked it in "White Man's Burden", a semi-facetious country song published in his book Crackers (available from Google Books). By the time Reagan was running on it, millions of Americans honestly believed that it happened all the time.

I like the Who a lot, but during a period when I had to listen to commercial radio I learned to hate that Baba O'Riley song. It seemed to be played every hour.

The Who generally either strike out or hit the home run, not much in between.

Thankfully, the hits were plenty!

Agree, doctorjazz. So many great songs, and so many that just elicit a shrug.

I could list a bunch of solid infield hits they beat out to first.

Pre-Monkees Mickey Dolenz...

@duke: This is the prime characteristic of Commercial Radio/Media: three songs by anyone. It was (past tense) a prime characteristic of Rawk Radio that it had Continuity: would play older foundational stuff as well as new 'Hits', & deeper cuts too...

- this was particularly relevant for The Wh♂ (& daggummit under-filmed & under-documented as such), who were about being the Greatest Live Band Ever, & famously frustrated @ *ever* having a #1...Hence, many people, especially younger ones, know the Three Songs by them & wonder what the fuss is about...

Rock is Dead they say - Long Live Rock...

I didn't know there was a pre-Monkees Mickey Dolenz.

Just a little. Two singles...four songs...not released till there were Monkees.

It's a Beautiful Day intrigued me with its lack of credits on the cover.

It's a beautiful day when it's got Hinky Dinky Time in the afternoon! Many thanks, UM!

(...in other words, a Wh♂fan who gets the Albums is a different creature; imagine a time when they & Hendrix & Cream were 'Underground' acts...)
