I'm a little behind so I don't know what you guys talked about yet, but I gotta get in on this.
This is about the secretary at Geffen. Silly.
and this is about two members of their fan club who died. Sad.
My own favorite Journey track about a girl (circa 1980):
go ahead, click on the YouTube link - it's a lovely power ballad.
And here, by a band actually called Girls, is "Lauren Marie":
When he finally says her name around the fifty-second mark, it really gets me.
And who could forget this classic? Surprised Gary didn't mention it:
And, of course, a different take on a song about a girl:

Surrounding every vein of silver is an ominous cloud.
I'm trying to figure out how to respond to this in a non-dickish way.....but, I can't come up with anything.-CarolineEAnd
Get back to 1991 with Me, Gary and guest... Jimmy Pardo!! Episode #011 is ready for your listening pleasure: http://rocksolid.libsyn.com/the-year-in-rock-1991
Only two kinds of people wear sunglasses inside: the blind and assholes - Larry David
If this episode doesn't include an in-depth breakdown of the lyrics for "Mistadobalina" then I don't want to be alive anymore. One thing I don't want is yet another track-by-track review of Melvin's Bullhead. It's like, yeah, we get it.
NNF: Rock Solid: 1991
I was deep into indie rock at the time, trying to get my own band off the ground (never did). Big fan of the UK "shoegaze" movement, of which My Bloody Valentine were the kings/queens. Their 1991 album LOVELESS was the achievement of the year. From the EP "Tremelo" (also '91), my favorite track:
In 1991, i listened to Metallica's black album more than anything else. As for now, that's still my favorite Metallica album, though not by a lot.
My other option for a 1991 album that i listened to in 1991 would be the soundtrack to The Commitments. I know it's "wrong," but i prefer some of The Commitments versions of the songs over the originals. I was familiar with all those songs going into the movie, so it's not a matter me being tricked into thinking the cover is the "correct" version.
After seeing them play two awesome songs on SNL, Everyday Sunshine and Sunless Saturday, i don't think i've ever fallen in love with a band quicker than i did with Fishbone. After getting their 1991 album The Reality of My Surroundings i found those were not only the only two decent songs on the LP, but the only two songs that weren't aggressively awful. I've never been more disappointed in an album purchase. Here's the SNL performance:
As for 1991 albums that i discovered later, Texas's Mothers Heaven isn't their strongest, but contains my favorite Texas song, Why Believe in You. Singer Sharleen Spiteri can belt like a motherfucker:
Chicago-based musical collective Poi Dog Pondering's Volo Volo starts with seven good-to-great songs before completely falling apart with the last five tracks. They're a band that should be particularly good live, high energy, with 8-12 members, horns, violin, etc. My favorite song from the album, Jack Ass Ginger, is an outlier both for Poi Dog Pondering and me in that it's the closest thing to rap that i like. The nonsense title and lyrics, however, are completely in keeping with the band:
A few weeks ago Gary mentioned something about uploading scans of Army Man Magazine. Did he upload them somewhere? I've been looking for high res scans for years.
I wonder how often Tom from Myspace listens to Frank Black's "Headache."
That's a hilarious thing I typed on Twitter one time.
Not sure if Gary reads this board, but a music fan like Pat needs to know the Pixies. I thought maybe Doolittle would be good for the next Force Feed. I dunno what kind of monster can't enjoy that album...I'm sure he'll at least like it better than the Black Keys.
I'm not the Facebook guy, but I was also hoping for some Afghan Whigs on the new episode.
A little late on the going solo episode, but I immediately thought of Jarvis Cocker going solo after Pulp. This song's so damn catchy.
