    10 Ways To Regretfully Miss Out On Record Store Day:

    1. You forgot to wake up!
    2. You had no idea such a day existed.
    3. You got sidetracked listening to your RSD releases from last year.
    4. You were at home streaming instead!
    5. You were drunk.
    6. You were building shelves for all the other records you have no room for.
    7. You thought it only occurred every five years.
    8. You thought that only record label executives celebrated it.
    9. You thought they charged money for you to get in the store.
    10. You had to stay home to receive your freight delivery of records you ordered a week before!

    ^^ Also, quite by coincidence, my first two songs are from crime-associated albums.

    Good choices. To make it a more personal 10 favourites list, I would easily sacrifice Genesis in order to place ELP's The Barbarian at the top of it.

    Invitation or toilet?

    I've always preferred the invitation cover myself, even if it did invite more silly comparisons with that other great '60s band.

    The RSVP cover is my favourite Stones album cover and on the short list of my favourite covers of any artist. The graffiti cover, while the original choice, looks cheap and tacky by comparison.

    And just to throw my personal favorites into the mix, the five I'd vote for in terms of Stones album covers would probably be:

    1. Let It Bleed
    2. It's Only Rock n Roll
    3. Their Satanic Majesties Request
    4. Between The Buttons
    5. Exile On Main St.

    Those five must share some common link that allures my taste, but who knows what that is! :)

    I like it, but he has done a number of songs better than that one. For some reason though it's his only song that seemed to capture the public's imagination.

    Fair enough. I admit it's the only one I've heard, and that it was very popular in its day, even if I can't figure out why.
