Did you do that thing you had to do with the bathing suits?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

I did indeed. I was unaware we'd be discussing laundry here on the chat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

I'll bring it all up when I'm done

I did not order the new release by "The Imposter," a cover of "American Tune".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:23pm Funky16Corners:

What would that be?

The flip to S&G's Fakin' It is so good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:27pm Funky16Corners:

I don't have that 45. I'll have to grab it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/5/17 10:27pm Uncle Michael:

I think Bob Brainen or someone played it on their show recently. I'd never heard it: "You Don't Know Where Your Interest Lies"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

I'm not familiar with it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/5/17 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

I played a cover of it on my show once, by Dana Valery. I didn't know it was a Simon song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/5/17 10:29pm Uncle Michael:

Matt M was the last to play the S&G version.
Avatar Wed. 7/5/17 10:40pm Jeff Ash:

Thank you for not playing the dreadful Sinatra cover of Mrs. Robinson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:40pm Funky16Corners:

You're quite welcome...dooby doob doo
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

And hello, Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/5/17 10:41pm Uncle Michael:

Mrs. Robinson more covered than Bridge Over Troubled Water? I honestly don't know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

In my collection by far, but out in the world, maybe not
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:43pm Funky16Corners:

And on the whole, I'd much rather hear a day long arathon of Mrs Robinson, as opposed to a bunch of faux gospelized Bridges
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/5/17 10:44pm Uncle Michael:

I'm just glad Elvis lived long enough to give BOTW the karate moves it cried out for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 10:44pm Funky16Corners:

MARATHON

You just can't live in Texas if you don't have a lot of soul....

This is a pretty version of both sides now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

Dave Van Ronk
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

Probably my favorite version
  Wed. 7/5/17 11:44pm cupcakejenny:

It's almost sadder than the original
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 11:45pm Funky16Corners:

I think his version came out before Joni's
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 11:45pm northguineahills:

Haven't said howdy yet. I have some old Tintern Abbey stuff, but I wonder what the genesis of their name is, as there was a nice shoegaze band in my area in college (mid 90s) w/ the same name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

It's an actual, medieval cathedral in the UK
  Wed. 7/5/17 11:46pm cupcakejenny:

I knew if I said original I'd be wrong lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

Joni wrote it but a lot of her songs were getting around on publisher's demos and getting covered early. Fairport Convention did a couple of her songs early on
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/5/17 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

It was also a poem by Wordsworth
