Your Complimentary Musical Interlude

A 1980s rock and roll/big band retro performance of "Face the Face" by Pete Townshend's Deep End. Try to sit still during this one. I dare ya.

Father H. is sending this one out to the Rev. Greg Alms and the Rev. Dr. Larry Rast.

If you enjoyed this piece of mid-80s high-test musicality, you may also like "Slit Skirts," "A Little is Enough," "Give Blood," and the greatest rock anthem of all time: "Won't Get Fooled Again" - all performed by Deep End with the same full brassy sound. But who allowed Pete Townshend and David Gilmour to be in the same place at the same time? Somehow, that has to stress the core of the earth to concentrate that kind of talent in one geographical place. Maybe we should ask Al Gore how much more of that kind of thing The Environment can take.

Others who prefer their Townshend a little more al dente, with (unintentional but present) baptismal overtones, will appreciate this virtuoso acoustic performance of "Drowned," or the really toned down ukulele-driven meditation on contentment "Blue, Red, and Grey."

Who needs MTV when we have Blogspot and YouTube?

Remember to turn it up, boys and girls, because if it's too loud, you're too young. And don't forget, all the best cowboys have Chinese eyes.
