    Why do I have to go to YouTube to hear the sound. On my phone it works fine.

    Good song. Sounds like a cross between The Boys of Summer and The Sultans of Swing.

    Nice tune. Now take it up a notch. Get a set of these:

    When I took my trip with my daughter a couple of months ago, I borrowed hers on our way to New York. First stop, Best Buy, to buy a pair. Whether in noisy environments or quiet, these are the best headphones I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Get some.

    I don't know how long this craze has been around, but is there anything more narcissistic out there than the reaction video? Some clown listens to a song with his webcam pointed at himself/herself, and says "Damn!" of "Fuck!" every 30 seconds. The one reaction act I can tolerate is Lost In Vegas, a couple of brothers who really like their music with a healthy dose of metal. They do make a genuine attempt to analyze and intelligently discuss what they're hearing, and even they barely scratch the surface of anything. They also love them some Rush - yes, I've just come up with an excuse to post some Rush (lot of intro stuff to this video, jump to 3:26 to get to the song):

    They aren't crazy. The people who watch are.

    Baton Rouge soul and R&B singer Percy Sledge. I wonder how far his fame reached. Has @GiantDuckFan heard this song?
