Video of the Day

This is one of my favorite songs (by one of my favorite singers), even if I don’t agree with the message. I like the musical and vocal arrangements on the studio version. Hard to believe I was only like two years old when this came out.
Who knew that multi-talented Todd Rundgren was the original Marilyn Manson–but with talent? Though I like the original studio version best, I really like the excellent remix of this song with Todd Rundgren’s original vocals which appears on the cool 2004 Warner Brothers ’70s & ’80s remix compilation album, “What is Hip? Remix Project, Vol. 1” (which I highly recommend–not all the remixes work, but the ones that do are really good). Listen to the Remix Here.

My favorite TR song: We Gotta Get You a Woman. “Its like nothing else to make you sure you’re alive”.

My local radio station plays “Love of the Common Man” every once in a while. When I catch it, I try to listen without multitasking. Recorded some 30 years ago yet the context hasn’t changed.
