Rock’n’Roll Fantasy: Today’s writing, led off by Mark’s marvelous essay, is, and I’m really at a loss for words, a treat to read. This is a forum thread where members are making an effort to contribute. Absolutely wonderful. I do recall this song playing on the radio back in the late 70s, late at night, making me feel pensive, maybe bringing on a touch of sadness. Melancholy, I think that’s the mood it sets. I’ve said this a number of times but I’m a sucker for these music fan songs as I see myself in the lyrics. And so this was a no-brainer for my playlist…until it actually was cut…and then made a comeback. Why was it cut? Too, and I’ll use Ray’s term, accessible! Just a smidgen too formulaic, perhaps. But it’s back on (and this decision was made before being swayed by the majority of today’s posts. I will add that I don’t see it at the Celluloid Heroes level. Nope). A good song. 3 for 4 for me.
