PERFECT! Jullee Cruise segueing into Sinatra :)
  Fri. 8/5/16 4:47pm Dean:

"Lost without your Love" includes the line, "Oh, darling, can't you see?," which arguably inspired "Oh, can't you see you belong to me?" "Every Breath You Take" is the stalkeriest of stalkery songs. More stalk than celery!
Avatar Fri. 8/5/16 4:47pm Cecile:

dang, play the creepy Bread song about him reading his woman's diary and her not being so much into him. That's as creepy as Ambrosia's "How Much I Feel"

@Cheri Pi: All true (and now publicly declared).

Never let her go = You belong to me? Maybe...

Said it before, props to Ambrosia for spinning a song out of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

I like some of their songs, but How Much I Feel comes from a dark, dark place.

You should do this more often, Sheila. By far the best Sophisticated Boom Boom show I've heard until now and I've listend to all the previous 53 ones completely!

the title of the album seems to imply that, eventually, he let her go
Avatar Fri. 8/5/16 4:50pm fred:

@ChrisB.: and it suddenly turns into "the wold spins" as Leland kills Maddy

Shorter "How Much I Feel: "Just wanted you to know that since you dumped me, I have been unhappily married and fantasizing about you. No big, though".

Avatar Fri. 8/5/16 4:55pm slugluv1313:

yeah, i recall looking up the lyrics to "How Much I Feel" prompted by a discussion here -- CREEPY is RIGHT!!! (weird, the song was a hit when i was . . . in 1st year of college? but was not really into it, guess that is why i did not really notice the lyrics)

my one and only high school boyfriend -- who was kinda knows as the tough-guy "school hood" -- LOVED Bread, when we would be on the phone he would sometimes play the records and sing along with them to me . . . !

I have a CD of Zehava Ben doing the best covers of Inta Omri I've ever heard. That's such a tough "song" to cover, and she nails it

Bernadette was the little girl in the Castro convertible commercial who shows everyone that it's so easy to pull a bed out of your couch, a little child can do it. Never knew she had a singing career.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/5/16 5:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Reminded of Chrissie Hynde saying she met some racist 'tough' guy or such who was all soppy over the song 'The Great Pretender' - by of course African-Americans. She said - 'yeah - I'll have some of that' - hence, The Pretenders.

A small favor to ask, Sheila: It'd be great if the archive can get posted before the tape-delayed Olympics opening ceremony begins. I plan to have the TV sound off and this show would be a good soundtrack.

NO. Math is important. And good math is artful. Both the math and musical parts of the brain feed into each other.
Avatar Fri. 8/5/16 5:44pm Cecile:

The writer CP Snow felt like art and science couldn't exist successfully without each other.
  Fri. 8/5/16 5:44pm Dean:

Amen. As a buddy of mine with a mind for science recently put it, "STEM isn't that hard." We don't need to immerse kids in STEM at the expense of Humanities.

Math, @Cecile, is precisely where one of my heroes, Leon Battista Alberti, finds the bridge between the sciences and the arts. He's right. Just look at his work.
  Fri. 8/5/16 5:45pm Dean:

Alas, Snow was prescient, at least from the time of "Two Cultures" to the present.
Avatar Fri. 8/5/16 5:46pm djsheilab:

@Dean I TOTALLY agree!

For a long time, math was considered part of philosophy, not science

Exactly, Fred. And as a sometime artist, I found and still geometry one of the most pleasing classes.
Avatar Fri. 8/5/16 5:47pm djsheilab:

@Fred @Cecile Of course math is important, but they would never get rid of math programs, whereas they're happy to let the arts go. That is a huge mistake.

@Sheila: If they think they can get rid of arts and keep logic and math alive, they're wrong
  Fri. 8/5/16 5:51pm Dean:

Certainly applied logic, @fred. But there's also a design aspect to it, an aim for a kind of elegance, albeit according to very peculiar criteria.

@Dean: it's about building a language, even on a small scale. A language without a culture is a dead prop
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/5/16 5:53pm Carmichael:

Utopia's The Very Last Time would be a good anthem rocker to follow that Outfield song. Burning it into my DJ brain ...
  Fri. 8/5/16 5:56pm Dean:

I'll just leave this here, @fred: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2012/12/24/utopian-for-beginners It's about a friend of mine from elementary school. You'll see the connection to language and software. He constructed a language (to be spoken, not for programming) designed to be optimally efficient. He's now creating progressive rock songs for the language, I kid you not. His singer is David Peterson, mentioned in the article.
