Currently?! Try, for as long as I can remember. This is practically my theme song.

The Rolling Stones playing You Can’t Always Get What You Want on the David Frost Show

For these reasons:

1) I can’t always get what I want
2) But if I try sometimes I get what I need
3) I am old and I kind of remember David Frost on TV and it makes me ache with nostalgia

Someone recently told me this is my theme song.

I’m listening to Holden a lot. Eg:

C’est plus Pareil (it’s not the same)

Damn! That’s a shame, @cookieman. Chill.

Never seen that before, @Call_Me_Jay. I think Mick was tripping. I can’t believe he could hit those licks sitting down! David Frost introducing the Stones is funnier than Ed Sullivan! But, I ache with you. Not all over, but, maybe, 30% of my body.
My mind is still acting out like a teenager!

I couldn’t have done better for you, myself, @SQUEEKY2.

GREAT video, @SmashTheState! Thanks. It was fun, avant-garde, and too self aware at the same time.

Okay, @msh. Where do you find purple people to eat?

Damn, @ragingloli. I was expecting something throatier. They had a song I l liked a lot. Back in my day.

Are you a musician, @anniereborn? That’s a beautiful song.

Thanks, @olivier5. Enjoy!

That’s wild, @Mimishu1995. I love it too.

@ibstubro Oh goodness me, no, I wish I was. That song is done by Miranda Lambert.

I WANT MY MTV, @Sneki95! Thanks. Time warp.

Oh, wow, @Mariah. I only know Jonathan Coulton from NPR! That’s the first time I’ve ever heard him sing something that wasn’t parodying someone else.

@trolltoll I knew every word, every nuance of that song. Tom Lehrer was one of our guilty pleasures when I was a little kid. I was SO thrilled when I found him on CD as an adult.

The uploader has not made this video available in your country.@olivier5. “Lily Allen – Littlest Things”. If you have another venue, I’d be pleased to listen.

@ibstubro I have no way of knowing which vid will work in your country. It’s just a sweet, melancolic song by Lily Allen, who usually writes more acid stuff. Google it.

I also enjoyed Tom Lehrer a lot. Very witty.

Youssou N’Dour ft. Neneh Cherry – 7 Seconds

Lehrer was incredible, @olivier5. Innovative without being overtly offensive.

I welcome the unknown.

Youssou N’Dour ft. Neneh Cherry was too powerfully unknown and visual for me. I’ll try again.

^^ 7 seconds’ lyrics are a mix of Wolof (a Senegalese language), French and English – it’s an anti-racist song, about the first 7 seconds in the life of a child. The song scored big in Europe some 10 years back.

It’s difficult with only one eye, so I hear. Er, see. :)
