Yes, common. It was on Tuesday. I cried the first time I watched it, and then the next day when I watched it again. It was not the first time I cried this season. This whole season is excellent but somewhat bittersweet.

The whole cast were on Seth Myers afterward. I'd try to bookmark that, and then watch it after you finally see Season 7. It's pretty hilarious.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/26/15 10:04am Uncle Michael:

It does. The Meters was 4 years earlier. But it gets interesting because I once saw Cyril Neville with Galactic an Trombone Shorty and they opened with the Ripple track...which is based on the Meters track...written by Cyril's brother and two others.

I don't compare them to their father. Objectively, they aren't very talented. Of course, that's just my opinion.

I'm kinda "whatever" on the Beatles, honestly. I like em ok, but I don't fawn over them like most folks seem to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/26/15 10:17am Cecile:

As I learn more about the eras before and after, I do see the Beatles place in history being bigger than I used to think. I like them more than I used to. But I never really liked Sgt Pepper's.

Some friends of mine supported Sean Lennon's band The GOASTT last year, so I went along to see them. They rocked. It was cool. Encored with Syd Barrett's "Long Gone". And I had no particular attachment to his family lineage. A pleasant surprise. (I haven't tracked down their records or anything, but a great live experience.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/26/15 10:18am Cecile:

oh, hey, I've seen that Del Shannon album around. Bet I can find it cheapish.

Now maybe Congress can get something done, Brendan.
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:20am Claw!:

See, I like Sgt Pepper's and Magical Mystery Tour the best, I think. Magical Mystery might me my favorite, if I had to choose. I like Revolver and Rubber Soul ok, too. But I think I like the druggy albums the most.

In fact, it took me years to like anything even vaguely Sgt Pepper=ish. I had to work it all out of my system. There are some great songs on that album, but the whole thing is too much for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/26/15 10:26am Polyus:

Just finished a book dealing with the Vietnam War on the train this morning, what timing.
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:27am Mark:

Not to nitpick, but "Revolver" might be the druggiest of all. John's songs ("She Said She Said" and "Tomorrow Never Knows") are drenched in acid. Many people think "Revolver" is their best album, coincidentally or not.
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:27am Brendan:

Happy Tet all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/26/15 10:28am Cecile:

Let's put it differently. On Revolver, the druggieness expresses itself in creative songwriting. In Sgt Pepper, lumpy self indulgence. Just saying. YMMV.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/26/15 10:28am Greg from Bloomfield:

Is it Tet already? Good heavens.
Avatar    Thu. 2/26/15 10:29am V Priceless:

It's taken me a lifetime to come to the realization that McCartney was truly the driving force behind The Beatles, too, with all due respect to JL, who indeed has become more and more douche-like as history melts away his public persona. But then again, I've always been more partial to The Kinks and The Who.
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:30am Mark:

I know we were on the wrong side in Viet Nam and all that, but a lot of people lost their brothers and sons and friends during the Tet Offensive, so it's not really something I like to see people celebrating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/26/15 10:33am bobdoesthings:

I like thinking how many "legends" would have never existed if they twitter had existed..
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:33am Mark:

V I think John started losing interest around the time of Sgt. Pepper, wasn't really writing as many songs, and when he fell in love with Yoko he was out completely. Paul was the only one interested in keeping it going. And as much as he gets bad-rapped as a lightweight, his best songs--"Hey Jude," "Let It Be," "Yesterday"--are as good as anything John ever wrote. And I love John, so I'm not putting him down. John was also the guy who really got the whole thing started, and in the early days he was the undisputed leader, I think even Paul would tell you that.
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:34am Claw!:

I hear ya, Cecile. I used to feel that way, too. Meh. Not sure what changed.
Let's just say that I typically don't consciously choose to play The Beatles. There are enough people that play them already, so I just roll with it.
Joe definitely gave me an appreciation for Eleanor Rigby, though. ;) Although it seems I like that song much more when it's played by artists who *aren't* The Beatles. Who knew??
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:34am John Yuma:

Traveling via Amtrak to NYC. Digging my fave station. Thanks for being there.
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:35am Mark:

For me, that's the test of a great song--how many people can perform it in how many different ways. The Beatles wrote a lot of them.
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:35am Mark:

All this because Joe played a track from "Mind Games" about a half an hour ago...

I never knew Wayne did this song. If you haven't heard his interview with Mark Maron (it's about a year old now), it's worth listening to the podcast (if you're as big of an MC5 freak as I am, anyway).
  Thu. 2/26/15 10:55am Robert:

It always sounds to me like, "The harder they fall, the harder they fall...." Well, duh! I also hear "The world is white, the world is white...," no "black" in it, & keep thinking it's about snow.

Millis used to do plays so the gospel ladies could see her routine without having to go into a nightclub. So you're off the hook.

When Millie Jackson talks about logs, she's really talking about something else, right? Just trying to keep up here...
Avatar Thu. 2/26/15 11:45am Joe McG:

@rw: I think she's just really into firewood.

I was thrilled watching Unsung to learn that Me'lissa Morgan not only covered a Mother's Finest song, but was all "pfft, I knew all the words by heart, wasn't anything"

@Cecile: Where do I see these Unsung shows? I'm really interested in them!
