It is a great record and one of my faves too.
You just made my day. Like you, this has always been one of my favorite songs. I can remember riding in the backseat of the family wagon, listening to AM 1400 WROV and when this song would come on I could actually get my Mom to turn up the volume. (This was of course back in the day when hearing your favorites on the radio was a complete crapshoot.)What a great memory and what a great way to start the day.
If you put in "that song with the saxophone solo" in google, it's the first hit.Discovered when I had a desperate need to hear this song but blanked out on the name.
Ah, Chez, as another, um...40+ out there, I have loved this song for years. Thanks for the happy flashback!
Sweet. I haven't heard this in a long while...thanks!
FAVORITE. SONG. EVER.Not the best video ever, though. But what can one expect from a video shot in 1978 for a band that clearly smoked a mountain of weed before the cameras started rolling.
I absolutely detest this song. There's nothing wrong with the song, per se. But, when I was growing up and delivering papers, every Sunday morning my clock radio would go off at 6:00 and some radio show was using this as their lead in. I really grew to detest this song.
Still Alive and Well...and a little fuckin' snarky to boot
I prefer Lisa Simpson's version ;)
Couldn't agree with you more. But how could you miss with a monicker like Raphael Ravenscroft?p.s. I'm 68 and I still have the cassette which I should burn to a cd on my Mac. Think I'll go do that now.
Oh, yay! I adored my college boyfriend, and this was "our song". Thanks for the sweet memories!
My fave too. Thanks!
Another underrated guitar solo on another ubiquitous 70's one hit wonder classic is the one in My Sharona. I'm gonna go you tube it now and even though I've always loved Baker Street, I had forgotten about the guitar closing the song.
