Real men of ROCK

A few weeks ago I was driving along and heard a song. It was the best song. NO, The real best song. I couldn’t even understand the words and it was nevertheless awesome. So not knowing the words or who the artist was I set out on a quest to figure it out. I had the tune in my head. I sang the tune in gibberish for several people whom I thought might know it. and then one day it happened. I did my horrible rendition in the OR and the ophthalmologist knew exactly the song. That same night, on the office Michael Scott sang it at Tobys farewell.

The reason I say Real men is you don’t see singers do this kind of thing LIVE anymore.

  1. Ahh yes. Supertramp combines many of the strong ingredients to make a Legit’ rock group. Authentic singer songwriter who plays the keys while singing, a horn section (although not used on this song, it is a staple for their other hits), a heavy dose of falsetto, several tempo changes, with a heavy upbeat ending that showcases a Les paul guitar played through a wah pedal and distortion. Very smooth indeed.

    I think I’ll go pump up the supertramp and do some housework for my pregnant wife.
