Happy Sunday Gaylord and all y'alls!!

80 here...been inside since eleven. Had to mow before a noon ballgame on the tube.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:16pm BadGuyZero:

I apologize for my tardiness. I was listening to the Rangers lose to the White Sox.

Hiya, @Marc Francis!

I left home with the Mets up 3-1 on Teh Barves in the 8th.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:18pm Uncle Michael:

Ugh..another win? The White Sox really aren't this good.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:19pm Gaylord Fields:

Cubs/Chisox WS?
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:21pm Uncle Michael:

Cubbies dished out another ass-whipping. 9-0 over the Reds. Of course, they got clobbered last night. But that's cool, following their five losses, they've outscored their opponents 40-4.

Best/worst case scenario, Gaylord!
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:21pm dale:

evening kids. like this carl rusk - now i have home work to do.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:21pm Uncle Michael:

I adore this America track.

Play all the songs that mention purple rain and predate Prince!
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Yes, that was a slant tribute to a fallen great.
  Sun. 4/24/16 5:23pm Chief:

Alligator lizards in the air. This song gives lots of pleasure.

I'm still waiting for someone to play "Purple People Eater" in tribute to Prince.

Hi, Gaylord and kind folks. In addition to the Easter Uprising in Ireland, today is also 100 years since the start of the voyage of the James Caird. www.amnh.org...

In honor of Purple People Eater, geezerette just gave us a Wilhelm Scream.

Hi everyone! What is this sportsy talk?!?

I knew you'd get the reference, Gaylord.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:37pm geezerette:

HaHa! Uncle Michael,I'm so proud!
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:38pm Gaylord Fields:

@famous original sugarwolf: Along with a rose garden, I never promised you sports-free chat -- only NFL-free comments during football season.
  Sun. 4/24/16 5:38pm Mr C:

Hollywood turns its lonely ears to Gaylord Fields..
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:39pm geezerette:

@geezerette: But why did it have to get Prince? The Grimace would have made a more sumptuous meal!
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:45pm Uncle Michael:

Who among us has not suffered from porphyria?
  Sun. 4/24/16 5:45pm famous original sugarwolf:

@gaylord: Grimace has too much beef tallow

@sugarwolf: Are you saying the Purple People Eater may be of the Hindu faith?
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:47pm dale:

superstar - BOOOM!
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:47pm geezerette:

@Gaylord: He wasn't actually purple...unless! King George's disease,Uncle Michael's theory.

i had no idea who wrote this - blown away.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:49pm Uncle Michael:

Might be the rare case where Karen's version of something is not my very favorite.

Leon Russel wrote it.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:50pm Uncle Michael:

With Bonnie Bramlett.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:50pm melinda:

What a great song.
  Sun. 4/24/16 5:50pm famous original sugarwolf:

@gaylord: maybe he's just trying to eat more healthily...
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:51pm BadGuyZero:

I scored a copy of the "Superstar" 7-inch in Chicago a few years ago.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:51pm Uncle Michael:

I think Rita Coolidge recorded the definitive version...but they're actually *all* very good.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:51pm Sem Chumbo:

Someone once said James Taylor had a voice that was the vocal equivalent of being photogenic; Karen Carpenter had that voice, too, I think.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:52pm BadGuyZero:

I don't think I've ever heard Rita's version. I'm adding that to my list of things to find on the interwebs.
  Sun. 4/24/16 5:52pm famous original sugarwolf:

One nice thing about the internet is that Todd Haynes' Superstar has been easier to find and watch.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:52pm Uncle Michael:

I literally heard Rumer for the first time just yesterday. This woman is the real deal.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:53pm melinda:

I'll have to look up the Rita Coolidge version. Great segue from Karen Carpenter to Rumer.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& who's the guy hasta mention Sonic Youth's version of 'Superstar'?
...If I said 'Superstar' w/ Karen C has more depth than anything P.R. Nelson did - I would be in trouble, wouldn't I...
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:54pm Gaylord Fields:

@famous original sugarwolf: I have a second-gen copy I got from Christine Vachon's cousin -- on VHS!
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:54pm melinda:

@sugarwolf: where is Superstar available?
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:55pm melinda:

@Gaylord: go ahead, rub it in. That's awesome.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:55pm Gaylord Fields:

@melinda: Legally, almost nowhere, but otherwise, a simple search can turn it up.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:56pm Monica:

gorgeous segue, gaylord. you turned me onto rumer. btw, i read last night that the 12 songs writer/producer/sample credits for beyonce's new lemonade album are 3,105 words long. no judgement but it's a stark contrast to his purpleness and, well, just about anyone from an earlier era.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:57pm Gaylord Fields:

@Monica: As far as learning, that's one for me, and dozens for you.

And good point on the Beyonce vs. Prince.
  Sun. 4/24/16 5:57pm famous original sugarwolf:

@melinda: I think I saw it on youtube
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 5:58pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: You might, rabbit, you might...
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 6:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I think of Dave Chappelle saying he hung w/ Prince - & - he cooked a better breakfast, the little guy kicked his butt @ basketball...As far as being capable goes - Prince was one of Those: a person who had something unique beyond what we usually mean even by 'talent' or 'genius'...
  Sun. 4/24/16 6:03pm Jonathan:

You didn't mention "Ventura Highway" which you played for a reason.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 6:04pm melinda:

thanks Gaylord & sugarwolf. I'll look for it.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 6:05pm Gaylord Fields:

@Jonathan: I did -- and even referenced "purple rain"!
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 6:06pm dale:

i hate to admit it, but i liked morris day and the time better in 'purple rain'
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 6:10pm geezerette:

Emerald and purple go together well.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 6:10pm melinda:

Beautiful Emerald Web.
  Sun. 4/24/16 6:13pm Jonathan:

Maybe that was when my signal dropped out. I'll give a listen to the archived version.
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 6:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...there's GuitarPop, PowerPop
- & SmartPop. I tried to Googles that & only got popcorn...
@GF (Somewhat randomly): Are you a fan of Neil Finn's 'Try Whistling This' album?
Avatar Sun. 4/24/16 6:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Don't really know that Neil Finn record -- just know of it.

Also: Try googling [po + "ruth miller"] for more meaningful results.
