Life in the closing days of the empire
I am reminded of the first time I heard this song. I was lying in bed - my mom was sure I was tucked up snug in my bed but in fact I put on my headphones, stuck a cassette tape in my boom box and hit record (I realize I'm dating myself,) and listened to the Dr. Demento radio show. (My fifth grade friends and I would trade tapes of the illicitly got show.) I remember my surprise at hearing that it was recorded before I was born. I didn't think anything cool happened before I was born ;) It holds up well, still funny today.
Without Norman Rose's voice it probably wouldn't have held up as well. My god, you are old.
Toad how great! I too date myself , what amazing lyrics though! Come see me and the latest news!.KarenaArt by Karena
