"Peacemaker" needs to be released again. We have come full circle into a time when the musicians need to stand up and speak out against tyranny.

Love, Hope, Peace, Christ Be With You,

Cal-el

Magnet and Steel was recently in a movie that for the life of me I cannot remember...anyone, anyone? I thought it was in a Ben Stiller or Owen Wilson movie, but the title fails me. There was a couple in the car and they had magnetic necklaces or something like that, and that song was playing in the background. HELP! This is driving me crazy!

Thanks, Terje. I comment too much here, but I try to keep it positive. So does everyone else, of course, which makes this such a fun site to visit.brbrCold Morning Light is a great self-pity song. Oh, Rundgren, you provided such a great soundtrack as I wallowed in my own self-pity in the spring of 1996 once I discovered Something/Anything?brbrJason, I saw Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut last week. It is disjointed, and it's possible Donner would've made a better film than the finished version if he hadn't been fired, but his cut makes you realize what a good editor Richard Lester was. For example, Donner's cut includes too many lame lines from Lex Luthor; Lester's cut makes Gene Hackman shine much more, and Lester never even got the chance to direct Hackman in any reshoots. The new scenes with Brando are pretty good, but I'll discuss all of that on the Nerdy portion of your site later.

Something/Anything? goes from hardcore RB, bar rock, and just plain studio weirdness to extremely mellow gold with songs like Hello It's Me and Cold Morning Light.

Thanks Robert. Jason's site is turning into a veritable '70s soft rock encyclopedia with his great posts and your equally interesting comments.

Rundgren's various stabs at mellowness were first mentioned, as far as I know, in Mellow Gold #13:

Hello, it's me. This is scary. I suggested Rundgren to Jason just yesterday, not noticing these last comments. Jason, did that happen more or less simultaneously? Robert, have you guys discussed Hello It's Me previously? Which post was that?

Do as you wish. You've given us enough already. All we're saying is that "Hello It's Me" and "Can We Still Be Friends" are Top 40 hits that contain some muy mellow sentiments.

You guys aren't letting up until I cover Rundgren, huh.

This site is like a support group for me. But I feel no shame! Unless you think I should ...

Bombs Away Dream Babies produced by none other than Lindsey Buckingham and featuring backing vocals from Stevie herself. It sounds A LOT like a Fleetwood Mac or Rumours-era Mac song.

I like Fire on the Mountain. Nowadays it makes me think of Deadwood. I'll spare you the requisite foul-mouth-expletive punctuation mark. I miss that show. :( Anyway, if anyone doubts that Smoke is actually mellow, remember that he's singing about a girl who he knows is out two-timing him, yet he's still kissing her cold, cheating lips and saying that he figured it out a long time ago. That he finally tells her not to let the door hit her ass on the way out is somewhat redeeming, but the song celebrates wallowing in denial, if only temporarily. Melllllllow listening.

Keep up the good work, Matthew!

Matthew, apoolgies for not picking up on your blog in any of your previous comments. As I mentioned on yours, what a great read.

MY post on Magnet Steel for the other blog. Thanks Robert! Well, it's now all come full circle--regular Jason reader/occasional poster reads comments on his own blogworkon Jason's blog. My head's spinning!

So Into You is one of the very best songs out of that era. It sounds great, even today. So does Doraville, if you remember that one. Or how about Wet Willie's Weekend ? Mellow southern gold.

didn't have a thing going with Stevie Nicks in the '70s? I think Fleetwood himself was involved.

Imaginary Lover, Heard It in a Love Song, So Into You or something like that. Maybe not Fire on the Mountain, which may be too intense. Or just too awesome.

Here's a post about Matthew Sweet's "Magnet and Steel" that I read a month or so ago but didn't remember I'd read it until today. I like it.
