    A really hard question for you Moody Blues fans

    So, you know that Moody Blues song where he sings, "I'm just a singer in a rock & roll band"?



    What band was he singing about?

    He was singing about himself and the Moody Blues.

    If you know the lyrics, he was basically saying that he didn't have any solutions to the problems of the world because he was 'just a singer in a rock & roll band'.

    "How can we understand
    Riots by the people for the people
    Who are only destroying themselves
    And when you see a frightened
    Person who is frightened by the
    People who are scorching this earth.

    Music is the traveller crossing our world
    Meeting so many people bridging the seas
    I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.
    We're just the singers in a rock and roll band.
    I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band..."


    That wasn't so hard Finchy.

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    That wasn't so hard Finchy.
    My point, and the point that everyone seems to be missing, is that the Moody Blues aren't rock & roll.

    Just killin' time on a Friday & tryin' to liven this place up.

    You would be surprised at the depth and verity of music that comes from Finch.

    October Skies is a spammer and one of over 45 names assigned to one IP address. I'm looking into having the IP address banned.

    It's nice to see people coming to Finchy's defence though.

    Hey, this is turning out better than I expected!

    Any other spammers out there, or is OctoberSkies the last one?

    You need to fix your signature.

    To be accurate it should read: "Capitalism = Moral but illegal"

    Read up on what laissez-faire means.

    May I suggest Andrew Berstein's The Capitalist Manifesto.
