“Meat City”- John Lennon

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=43pG6w7kiCs Well, it’s good enough to be lifted from the album to be the single’s b-side. Is that too famous to be a deep cut? Mind Games is one of Lennon’s more enjoyable, though reviews land all across the board. I think it’s pretty good.

Deserves acknowledgment in my ring, as it takes a dignified bow to … Continue reading “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”-Robert Hazard VS Cyndi Lauper

“UJB>Space>Rat”- Grateful Dead, May 11, 1977

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PQJqJLFi4Xw Not only is this an excellent show all around, but its arguable highlight is this unique jam.
