    1. The original version of this track has a 4-letter obscenity in its title and chorus. On this version, the obscenity is backmasked, so it sounds like "Wu-Tang Clan ain't nothing to oowf! with".

    4. Damn!

    6. With additional vox by Bonnie "Prince" Billy

    7. HPR is gonna be so bummed when Stetson finally comes here on tour and it's not an all-ages show. HPR, inspired by Stetson is getting better at using just his breath to get a variety of sounds out of the recorder, but he doesn't use much fingering. He's probably cut out more for a brass instrument than a woodwind.

    # I was really excited for this album because I loved their last record, but boy was I disappointed. I think the last Grade A, 10 star, 3 thumbs up NEW album I bought was The Black Keys El Camino. That said, I sure do love this song.

    ## I swear this song only pops up on Friday mornings

    ### the video for this song is beautiful

    #### this song had been covered by hundreds of artist, The Kinks version is still my favorite.

    ##### I tried listening to other songs by this group, nothing really grabbed me.

  8. Algonad had a neat query on his book d'face:
    Best and worst opening lyrics of a [] song?
    Any takers?

    First "best" to come to mind was "Horses" (Palace/Bonnie Prince Billy covers: unsure of original):
    "I'd be riding horses if the let me."

    1. "Your butt is mine; gonna tell you right"
      "Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste"

    2. Wow I don't know most of those.
      Except brianS and CanOMaize's second one, if I'm right. Is that the Stones' "Sympathy"?
      Here are some other potentials:

      "In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey."
      "You wired me awake and hit me with a hand of broken nails."
      "Is it depression or disease?"
      "It's great to see the people that you saw yesterday."

      Not much for worst openers, though. Maybe this:
      "Life is hard and so am I."
