the first time I discovered there was such thing as a 'single' version vs. an 'album' version

I was 10 or 11, and I remember hearing this song on my daddy's record player when I was visiting for the weekend in 1975 or 1976, and I absolutely loved it and made him play it a bunch of times that weekend. It was the version on the album, which is the only one you ever hear nowadays.

Then I heard it on the radio during the week, because it was released as a single at that same time, and I remember being like ... wait ... this is different! What the heck!

And I remain baffled to this day WHY they made a different mix for the single. Guessing this was the 'AM' version, whereas the FM stations would play the album version.

a lebowski musical guarantee for my fellow americana fans ... this dude is damn good

he's been making records for 11 years, he does a lot of styles but all are rooted in 60's and 70's music ... americana, beatlesque, 70's rock ... he really has almost no bad songs, and a hell of a lot of really good ones

alternate, stripped down version, damn cool

Yoyoka (11) tries her hand at 'Don't Look Back in Anger' by Oasis (1 month ago)

And nails it, of course ...

This is pretty kickass too ... skip to 10:30 for the song put together with all the parts she played.

Freaking 11 years old, are you kidding me?

rob baird - dreams and gasoline (studio-2012) a musical guarantee for my MAG americana lovers :)

Trippy that it looks like it could've been filmed in N. California ... early scenes look like Oakland to me, and the later driving ones look like mountains in CA. But I bet it's totally not, lol ...

janis joplin - to love somebody (live-1969-dick cavett) tearing the roof off the bee gees classic

and this is, surprisingly for that era ... an actual live TV performance, no lip-sync nonsense right here ... or if I'm wrong it's the best lip sync I've ever seen.

u2 - bad (live-1985-wide awake) no joke, out of many thousands, this is my all-time favorite song

I mean there's so many close competitors like Day in the Life, Achilles Last Stand, Pictures of You, Here Comes a Regular to name a few ... but if you made me pick an absolute favorite song ever ... it's this.

So I have this idea for a poll regarding human disease/immunity response :)

That I'd like to ask everyone to participate in, if you'd be so kind

There's two dimensions to this, and I'm curious to see what the intersection looks like.

I want you to consider the total number of episodes in which, during the ages between 18 and 50 yo. (or however old you are, if less than 50) ... that you spent a day or more 'in bed sick', specifically due to some variety of infectious disease.

So, not a flare-up of a chronic condition or cancer or diabetes, or anything of that nature, but just plain SICK. I don't mean you never even got up from bed, but you didn't WANT to, except as absolutely necessary. Don't count 5 days in bed from 1 illness as 5 times, count it as 1 episode of sickness.

Here are the options for this parameter:
1) Sick in bed for at least 1 day, probably more than 3 different times
2) Sick in bed for at least 1 day, about 1 to 3 times
3) Sick in bad for at least 1 day, 0 times

And then for the 2nd parameter, I'd like you to consider how wide your exposure was to other humans, SPECIFICALLY BEFORE you were 18 years old.

Here are the options for this parameter (large city being 250,000 minimum population, and 'overseas' meaning an area significantly different from where you otherwise generally spent your time. UK/Ireland is not overseas, for example):
A) Rural/suburban life - less than 1 year in a large city, and without ANY period of time living overseas
B) Mixed rural/suburban and city life - 1 to 4 years in a large city, no time living overseas
C) Urban life - more than 4 years in a large city, OR any time living overseas
