Least Listened To LC Song?

Post by jerry » Wed Nov 03, 2004 2:04 am

For me Tacoma Trailer. It's the last track on The Future and I usually find myself stopping the cd before this song starts playing.

Was that on his farm in Tennessee? Or in Montreal?

Which, Jerry? The 'scene' looks Tennessee, but I wasn't sure of the alignment of his age and those times, and how his age in the picture fits that; which took me immediately to maybe its being Montreal [where dark, (night?) blue sky and frame houses might also be seen].

Thanks for the clarification. Maybe Jarkko can help you out on that photo. He and Rauli [his son] are the pros here on that.

Back to songs. :)

I think Jazz Police is the song I listen to least.

The Future is the album I play least.

It isn't that I don't like them or appreciate them, but I relate to other songs and albums more.

Jazz Police I like better every time I hear it. Suzanne, though, is something different. I probably liked it the first 50,000 I heard it. I then grew tired of it and skip over it with that handy little button.

Yes Tom, I too always skip Always :) And I skip the whole of Ladies Man ... but why would anyone want to skip the evocative Tacoma Trailer?

It seems a lot of people don't care for Tacoma Trailer. Perhaps because it's an instrumental (and not a very hot one either). However, I do listen to it. I spent one July 4th weekend in a trailer in Tacoma and thatwas a very hot one...cha, cha, cha! :D :D :wink: It is an evocative song indeed!
