I hate the album as it stands. The hits are just that and everything else is turds. The only other good songs are better heard with US Rubber Soul.

Me personally, my favorite BeeGees song is "To Love Somebody."


No idea what my "FAVIORTE BEGEES song" is.

Without one single doubt, his first two albums, Pandemonium Shadow Show and Aerial Ballet.
Two of the finest pop albums ever reased. Absolutely essential for any fan of quality music, period. Perfection.

This coming from my week old opinion: YES YES YES!

this was originally written and posted at my blog hence the style change but I think a few may enjoy it.


You Can't Always Get What You Want but Sometimes You Get a Tee Shirt

Okay so here we are folks, another year and in a week and a half, my second anniversary with Weis Markets. I never planned on lasting this long there, I swear but I said that about the last two jobs as well. More on this in another post.

I was sitting around last night lamenting a bit all the great partying I was missing out on because I was opening the office at 6am on New Year's Day. I kept thinking how I could have closed on New Year's Eve, left at 8pm and still had plenty of party time yet to go. But when I came in this morning and saw that four cashiers and mighty Jared wasn't enough to make the night go smoothly I knew I had made the right decision. The store did 65K in one day and closed 2 hours early. I think that's more than any single day since I started in the office. That's just nuts.

So I may have only had 3 hours of sleep or so but I've confronted Sunday mornings on less before so it wasn't so bad. I cranked up some music and set about the tasks at hand and it was all pretty much good.

But I digress-- there's an amusing story from New Year's Eve to tell and honestly it's one of my stories so I don't know who gets painted to be the bigger assclown here. Usually me.

I've been going to Rob's parent's for New Year's for the last seven years or so. I think Rob's sister Becky was a ten year old Girl Scout when I first started hanging out over there. Every year now it seems like the numbers, height and annoyance level of Becky's adolescent friends increases exponentially. There's a few familiar faces in among them, kids I've chatted with once a year every year. This year it was clearly their show and their party. Rob and our crew were never this hip to get this many people to such a square party, not even at their age.

Anyway, I was hanging with my boy Anthony who is 21 and has a beard. I tell you this only so you know what sort of creepazoids we must look like to these teenagers. There's one girl with a Rolling Stones tee shirt on and part of me kinda wants to just talk to her since that's pretty hip if you ask me. Then again, it also makes me look like a sleaze no matter how you slice it.

Then again, I am an asshole. Anthony and I begin developing not so subtle ways to drop the Stones into conversation, the "Miss You" gambit being the best and most hilarious idea. But nay we didn't do that either.

I watched quietly as a rather hirsute young 'un reached for the Crown Royal and poured a cup. "You aren't gonna tell are you?" "Nah." I whispered to him. "We were soldiers once... and young." feeling his underage drinking pains.

I decided to use him. "You know that girl with the Rolling Stones shirt?"

"A little. why?"

"Find out for me what her favorite Stones album is. If it's a Greatest Hits title I win."

Anthony chimed in. "I don't know what you are winning. I'm with you on this."

I go off to a corner of the yard in hysterics at the absurdity of the events.

"Dave she uh named an album."

sh*t I thought. I was wrong. "What album?"

"The Rose."

"Um um sorry." trying to not be a complete musical chode, "but that isn't a Stones album." In fact it's a Bette Midler album.

"Her mom gave her the shirt."

"Well maybe her mom would have been wise to pick up 40 Licks for her while she was at it."

1987  Disorderlies     
"Wipeout"  (need confirmation that this   was indeed the BB with the Fat Boys version)

Well people forget too that the BBs themselves cameo in the movie and I'm pretty sure it's the same FB/ BBs version in the movie. Great comedy!

BTW of course HeftySums would know about this!

"Sleep Late My Lady Friend"

Best way I know for me to kick this "New Participant" tag.
219  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Licensing on: December 30, 2005, 10:06:15 AM
just fucking with ya.
220  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Licensing on: December 30, 2005, 09:24:22 AM
yeah yeah, read that the first time D posted it Smiley
221  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Licensing on: December 30, 2005, 09:05:51 AM
I don't know man, I think if marketed right you could sell "Pet Sounds" as the newest in emo hip.

Seriously, what's more "emo" than Pet Sounds?
222  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: BB/BW music in movies on: December 30, 2005, 09:04:12 AM
"Kokomo" is used in the film "Cocktail" with Tom Cruise.  Wink
223  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Licensing on: December 30, 2005, 09:00:46 AM
Now seriously why isn't there BBs product out there like the Beatles and just about every other "classic rocK" (gawd I hate the term) group around?
Love is so worried about the legacy-- I think some hip shirts would help get the image out there a bit more-- and none of that crap "giant letter Bs" logo from the last twenty years.
I think if I heard Hot Topic was stocking some Pet Sounds or Friends shirts Id crap myself.

Maybe if he got off his ass and released a new album instead of being the world's most famous talking head, some chicks would dig him. Plus last I saw him he looked like he hadn't bathed in a week... granted this made him look even more like his dad circa 1968.
