Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

I Think I Wrote A Symphony

Better piano-based coda than Layla. I said it, and I stand by it.


  1. Yes, you said it. But, unfortunately, it was not an accurate thing to say.

  2. You’re not the only one. November Rain simply rules. The coda is its best section

  3. Me and my wife were, frankly speaking, poor when the “Use Your Illusion” albums came out, and we could (barely) afford to buy one of the albums in the month when they were released, as much as we wanted both of them, having had our brains exploded by hearing “Welcome to the Jungle” on a dance floor together a couple of years earlier. There were multiple conversations around the dinner table that month, while eating Minnesota Hot Dish, about which one we should get first. We ended up opting for “Use Your Illusion 1,” in large part because that cold November rain vibe corresponded to what we were experiencing in deepest, darkest Idaho at the time. It is a family special to this day accordingly. I generally do not tell my daughter that we chose a GnR album over nutritional food for her that month, though that is the reality we experienced at the time . . .

      I, too, had only the funds for one of the two UYI’s, and made the same choice for the same reason.

  4. The disco borkskits play >November rain coda and it slaps.
