Me and yes I am going to date myself vs thinking yo mickey youre so fine you blow my mind oh mickey.

One of my biggies where I can remember exactly where I was an what I was doing was Roundabout.

My brain screamed at the layers of sound these beasties got.

Lucky Man would be tied. Oh crap. I can't pick just one.

The late summer of 1964; music had mellowed out for a year, since the assassination of JFK. I was a short-timer in thee Marine Corps at Camp Lejeune, N.C., living in the barracks.

Once this song hit the billboards, you could hear it booming coming out of all the barracks, because when it played it got the full volume treatment every time.

(The next song to hit the chart big-time was "I wanna hold your hand" by the Beatles.)

I can't say how this song made me feel at the time, but it was universally liked by my Marine Corps brothers. I think we all felt like lonely losers to some degree, and it made us pause to listen.

EDIT: "Short Timer" definition - close to the end of a four year tour of duty

Finally being able to log back on. One of the most awesome earth shattering tunes ever.

(and thank you for your service especially at that time)

Sitting in the upper deck at the Whiskey and hearing and seeing and feeling Radar Love from this band called Golden Earring.

Man I thought I was going to go thru the roof.

I had the same reaction the first time I heard this song - and I didn't know it was the same band.

So bang on. :eusa_angel: It's one of those soundtrack moments that you remember forever. No lyrics. But in your head all of a sudden you're in the movie. And if you hum it, you still have a light saber in your hands.

I'd never heard anything like it. And the ending is so sad.

I wound up just enamored of anything Bowie did.

Golden earring - Twilight zone - YouTube

Beleive it or not, that video and tune was banned in a lot of places as being "too violent".

Can you believe it looking back?

But then they also banned Garth on so many stations with Thunder Rolls. Go figure.

Seriously? For "When the bullet meets the bone?"

First banned song I ever loved:

Awesome for true.


Please bear with me. I'm praying this works for you. Check these guys. Sign of the Storm. Well what can I tell you.

I think he's amazing. No one can ever be Jimmy, but this guy is really a real player.
