I usually don't like mixes, but the one of this song mixed with Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" is really incredible.  (I guess it helps a lot that I like both songs on their own.)  Check it out on YouTube.

The grammar discussion on the BoDeans song is a never-ending source of amusement.

 dwhayslett wrote:

Um, that's only a 'fix' if you don't mind changing the meaning of the lyrics, however subtly.  In that case, you could substitute anything that satisfies a desire for grammatical purity.  "Don't pass my bee."  "Here in the sea."  "Geese in a v."  "Free free free free."

The lyrics are just fine as they are, IMO.
 




But this comment about the song itself is pretty awesome.

This song means a lot to me.

I met an Aussie girl in Tahoe when we were both working at a ski resort. When she went home I drove her down to SFO to catch her flight home. KFOG played this song when I was pulling out of the parking garage. I just lost it. We really liked each other and I didn't think I'd ever see her again - she was on a plane to Sydney and I was 23 years-old. What were the chances? This song just totally captured how I felt about her - it struck every nerve.

We've been married now for 10 years and have a little girl.

I'm 16 years old, it's 1982. I'm working the midnight shift at Shell Gas in North Vancouver. The quirky guy on shift before me leaves a tape in the grubby player. Tells me I'm welcome to listen. I press play and hear the Nebraska album all in one go. Just me and the urban nightscape.... I felt like I'd been hit by a ghost by the time I'd listened to both sides. I give this song a 10 when it's played in the context of the entire album.

Song: Dead End StreetArtist: The KinksAlbum: Face To Face
read after bill says something about the kinks being on the edge of rock & roll.
Posted 5 months ago by Spuck:
Any new music is created on the back of that which came before. To say old
music is no good for whatever reason misses the point. When I was young,
I had no idea what people saw in Elvis. Not until I was in my 20s did I
"get it". I still don't get Sinatra. Oh, well. I know better than to
say that he sucks just because I don't get him.

The older I get,
the more I can appreciate history and all the influences that have
brought us to today. I don't get a lot of things but I know all it would
take is the correct time, place, people, whatever, to understand and
appreciate.

If you want to only hear what fits in your narrow
view, you should be listening elsewhere. The greatest thing about Radio
Paradise is that you get more than just what you think you want. Bill is
here to broaden your mind, whether you think you like it or not. There
are all kinds of places to hear only what you like and what you know.
Those places are a dime a dozen (to use an old, old phrase). This place
is special. Don't ruin it for those of us who appreciate.

Radio Paradise is a very rare gem.
