  Swag For Life Member 9:47am Walt:

When "American Pie" was released, or some time shortly after, radio stations also played an "annotated" version. The music would break and a narrator would explain whatever reference the song was making. I haven't heard this since it played in my middle school art class in 1972 (the teacher had the radio on while we were making linoleum prints, very cool), does anyone know if this was released as a single or otherwise exists?

I'm a swag for lifer who pledged on top of it to fill the Nachum Gap. Can I get a yarmulke instead of a heart in addition to my radio?
  11:07am jan:

Yeah, Ken, that was kind of a hostile takeover of BS&T by David Clayton Thomas-never knew how that happened, but the resulting group was terrible. Tunes from
the original band and it's progenitor, blues project would be a good antidote.
  11:07am howard in nyc:

I need one, Ken. Swag pledge. Thank you very much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am tomasz.:

hey Ken, i'll have a badge please! normal rather than S4L, as yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am Webhamster Henry:

Right - the first, Al Koopery BS&T Album is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08am Bronwyn Bishop:

cool cover of one of the best early beach boys tunes!
  11:09am Sam:

Similar to the Like a Team version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am doctorjazz:

Ok, I'm a Swag For Life pledger who increased to a Mouse this year (Nachum deficient year). I'll go for the badge (even though I don't know what I'm going for...)

you're killing it w/ this playlist, ken
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13am Webhamster Henry:

More isolated tracks please! Duane has been playing a few, they are great! I did a little remix of "I want you Back" with just Michael Jackson and Wilton Felder's bass track.
Avatar 11:14am quinn:

yes i love this. i'm belting out this song in my attic.
  11:14am F¶F¶ (:

Like a Team's version is SO good a classic band, say The Beach Boys, should cover it.
Avatar 11:17am fm Mike:

Oh god that raven gif distresses me so much... I guess it serves its purpose lol
  11:17am F¶F¶ (:


Wait..Is it ok to shout non-musical entities? I easily forget the strict comment policies.

Trivia: two of the voices on that spoken word rap behind Marvin Gaye's What's Going On were NFL stars Lem Barney and Mel Farr of the Detroit Lions. So old that track, the Lions were good.
Avatar 11:18am fm Mike:

F¶F¶ ( that's okay :)
Avatar 11:19am fm Mike:

Also, F¶F¶ (, have you heard of John Cooper Clarke? He was a musician who did a lot of spoken word at his concerts.
  11:21am John & Wendy:

What was the song at the very beginning of the Marvin Gaye/Bowie mix? Female vocal. "Things will get better someday?"
  11:22am F¶F¶ (:

Never heard of him (I'm assuming he is a man), fm Mike. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am tomasz.:

John Cooper Clarke closed out a Sopranos episode once. it was good
Avatar 11:25am fm Mike:

Ohhhh nice transition!!!
  11:25am F¶F¶ (:

This Snoh Aelera sounds like Portishead. Or is it a mashup?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am Ike:

Pls install a heart in me later! Thx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am rsj:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am Bronwyn Bishop:

someone said on the other day that swearing on the comment boards is also covered by the FCC. that can't possibly be true, can it?

I prefer Faeces Flöte over Pooey Flute. It's music made for those of us born with sophisticated musical taste.
Avatar 11:54am Sno-Time at the Apollo:

That was fantastic. I have the window to my apartment open and there was a dog howling along to the sheiss flote. He stopped as soon as the song finished.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am joe mulligan:

@Ken - La Vie En Rose sounded very similar to The Fez. might be just me thoughT
