Attaching musical instruments made of metal to leather straps - or to little drops of water?

Apparently he changed his mind a bit over the years.

The song is also of interest for archaeologists, cobblers, dorsal admirers, clothes lenders, and amorous critics.

Hi Hartmut,

Is the song "Take This Longing"? Of course it is. :)

Hi,

A scenario of spiritual entities of a sort exhibiting doglike behavior is found in what song?

Probably not what you're looking for, but quite fitting:

His spirit continues to drool

Quick as dogs and truly dead

Hi Hartmut,

You brought forth words from "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong" and "I Left A Womoan Waiting." Those
from "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong" fit perfectly. The yet to be identified canine based lyric is still
hiding in the doghouse, though it'll soon be outside the door.

Oh, okay, why didn't I think of that? - Thanks for the tip.

"Angels scratching at the door to come in" or something like that, from one of the newer songs.

...

"Amen"

"When the angels are panting
And scratching at the door to come in"

Well, that was quick ...

But not correct.

I'm kidding.

Here's a video with LC's explanation of the song:

Thanks!

Being too young, I'm not quite sure about this, but I've heard that people of the past used to contact each other without email or even cell phones.
You should figure out where a person of interest lives, and then you just go there and meet them. An odd idea, but so they say.

Please, name two cities that are mentioned or meant* as a final destination of such a trip in LC songs.

* as far as we know the song's background

Hi Roman,

Is one of them "The Golden Gate"? There, the city is San Francisco.
