We have problems because we stray from what is innocent and pure.

"Thick as a Brick", Jethro Tull - 1972. Classic Rock, def.: when there was music.
"'Thick as a Brick' which is presented as a poem written by an 8-year-old literary prodigy, Gerald "Little Milton" Bostock, whose disqualification from a poetry contest is the focus of the front page story. This article claims that although Bostock initially won the contest with "Thick as a Brick," the judges' decision was repealed after a multitude of protests and threats concerning the offensive nature of the poem, furthered by allegations of the boy's psychological instability." In other words, not politically correct.
I have good memories of skipping school senior year almost every day with my 2 friends, and we would listen to the classic rock station in my friend's old Volkswagen Bug while we were driving. Boston's "More Than A Feeling" was one of them.
I also had a co-worker who committed suicide, after his wife and family left him. I felt so bad, and have a strong memory of listening to Radiohead's "Creep" on the radio as I drove home after hearing he had killed himself, and being so sad.
I mixed some memories together (I think they're both considered classic rock by now). Dedicated to Scott!
