Co-written by Tom Petty and Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, and that's apparent in both the sound and his appearance at the beginning of the bizarre video.
From our friends at Wikipedia, there's a story behind this involving another Petty collaborator, Stevie Nicks.
The original inspiration was a romantic encounter that producer David A. Stewart of Eurythmics had with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. On The Howard Stern Show, Stewart explained that the title's phrase was actually uttered by Nicks. She had broken up with Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh the night before, and invited Stewart to her place for a party after an early Eurythmics show in Los Angeles. Stewart did not know who she was at the time, but went anyway. When the partygoers all disappeared to a bathroom for a couple of hours to snort cocaine, he decided to go upstairs to bed. He woke up at 5am to find Nicks in his room trying on Victorian clothing and described the entire scenario as very much reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Later that morning, she told Walsh, "Don't come around here no more."
Originally by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, but I love this cover!
It's Canada Day so Neil Young is in order
OK, I can work with that theme. Does anybody else know Stan Rogers (possibly the hero of the Air Canada Flight 797 tragedy)?
For my wife . . .
And Stan Rogers' anthem:
That's enough for now - I'll let you find "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" on your own.
Today marks the anniversary of Disco Demolition Night at Comiskey Park in 1979, an ill-conceived promotion that hastened the demise of disco music, and damaged the field so badly that the 2nd game of a double-header had to be forfeited.
I like this one. It is on my iPod.
Trivia: The church referred to in this song was St. Patrick's Cathedral, on 5th Avenue in NYC, according to co-author Mama Michelle Phillips.
