I posted this on the wrong thread. I think this live cover is better than Enya’s studio version. (Enya fans pleae — no flames!)

That's a classic!

Here's a cheezy video, but I love the song: Sexual Healing

The national anthem is amazing, too!

YouTube really is amazing for finding old classics.
How about some old glam wackiness?
Too bad the video/audio seem to get out of synch.

I have three or four Sparks albums on vinyl, haven't listened to them in years. I didn't know they were still around. I didn't see too much of the old stuff on YouTube.

Yes. Dave Grohl, Foo Fighter founder, singer, and guitarist, was also the drummer for Nirvana.

He used to have a show on XM called Crossroads. That was cancelled. He also shows up regularly on CMT in the “greatest hits of xxxxx” series.

No, not me

Everything (not very much) I saw in Saratoga County was nice.

Never listened to it. I’m in the southeast corner, I don’t think I can tune it in here.
