I'm a little on edge. The hippies behind me are at it again. A horrible singer with rather limited chops is leading his people in rousing renditions of Elton John's "Rocket Man", ACDC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" and, the worst of all, "Amie" by the Pure Prairie League. Just going by their song choices for their damn love-in tells you how lame they are as hippies. I don't hate hippies in general. I try to give them the same consideration in regards to their chosen freak flag as I would anybody else. I just hate bad hippies. And this shit is bad. Rudimentary acoustic guitar accompanied by the most rhythmically challenged drumming and tambourine bashing that you can possibly imagine.
Somehow I started poking around and ran into a Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love", and then Johnny Burnette and the Rock 'n' Roll Trio's "Train Kept A Rollin'", both of which I've heard a million times, as I'm sure you have. But I was looking for a distraction from the ambient cluelessness wafting through the neighborhood, so I opened both songs and listened to them simultaneously. It doesn't matter that the beats don't match or any of that. It was just a bunch of crunchy guitar noise, and the louder I made it, the more it seemed the perfect thing to hear. It's horrible. It's fantastic. I'm going to go rent a P.A.
