This is meant to provide a bit of quick fun here and there, kinda like the Word Association thread. It works like this:
I'll post the titles of two Tull songs. The next person who comes along will choose which of those two songs he likes better and put it up against a new tune. The third person will pick from the two posted by the second person and put the winning track against another new one, and so on.
So, say I post My Sunday Feeling and Aqualung. Perhaps maddogfagin comes along and chooses My Sunday Feeling and puts it against With You There to Help Me. Then nonrabbit joins the fun and chooses With You There to Help Me and puts it against Strange Avenues. Steelmonkey finds the thread and picks Strange Avenues and puts it against Budapest, and so on.
All you really need to post are the song you like better from the previous post and a new song for it to face, but comments on the matchups and other people's picks are welcome, of course.

steelmonkey: Music IS the best medicine...and Tull the best of the best. If Tull lyrics were studied like religious texts and Tull songs picked as national anthems, I would at least believe I had been sent to the right planet.

steelmonkey: Mexico bound in a couple days. Flying to La Paz ( in Baja, not Bolivia) for sole purpose of hitchhiking 1200 miles back north to land border and hopefully not get trapped and unable to catch planned flight back from San Diego.

tetval36: Yeah i know Tulls stuff inside out and know its definitely NOT Tull as i said.Maybe PFM or some other Italian Prog band?

steelmonkey: Back from sunny Mexico. Sanity oasis was nice...return to work and baseline California hysteria less so. Covid response without media shark-a-nado clickbait and politicians who are either deniers or saviors was an eye opening perspective.

nrg: Just got the A box. "A"mazing! The Steven Wilson mix is incredible. Enjoyed the Slipstream video as well. I just wish they offered the entire show on video.

jackinthegreen: I'm having a memory blank......has Benefit had the book version done yet?
May 6, 2021 23:50:23 GMT
Catqualung: jackinthegreen, as far as I know the book box set of Benefit is still due to be realized, but it has not appeared yet, as well that of Broadsword and the Beast, they should be the next in the row

jackinthegreen: Thanks Catqualung, yes, I'm sure that's the case, it will be out this year I would think

theothertull: Didn't know if I should laugh or cry, pathetic or what, "I played with Paul McCartney; well like a demo, no one has ever heard it, but it's big Japan. Can't remember if Paul was in the studio at the time of the demo, but ya mate, John, Paul, Ringo and I."

steelmonkey: Spring has sprung in California...or, at least, here in the land of two seasons, 'not rainy season' has begun.

steelmonkey: 'Walk Into Light' cued up as my headphone delivered soundtrack for bike ride home on empty streets at 3:00AM after 10 hour shift ends in 5 more hours.. True reward.
