Isn't it funny when you've been listening to song for years and think you know it really well only to realise you've been singing the words wrong all along!? I always thought IA was singing In the shuffling madness, of locomotive breath etc etc......but no! You can pick out the real lyrics much more clearly on this version
Thanks for finding that Nonrabbit, been looking for it for awhile, my mate Alan is now constantly taunted by it, in a pub the other night, someone called out to him only to have half the pub shouting Steve, Steve, Steve in unison
"Do you ever get the feeling that the story's too damn real and in the present tense?"
Ah, the joys of childhood...I'll always cherish the memory of some bigger boy on the playground trying to explain to me, colpete with stick drawings in the sand, what was naughty, and therefore funny and admirable, about Tiny Tim's dent in the top 40 charts 'Tiptoe thru the Tulips'.
Jings, Crivvens , Help Ma Boab! I hope that lad didn't grow up to be Ian Anderson ;D BTW, if you watch the rest of the video The King Brother's are on after the wee Edinburgh lad. That really makes me feel old as I saw them at Blackpool when I was a wee lad But as this is the Funniest Video's thread, watch the lady in the striped blouse at 5min 27sec. Well, she made me laugh ;D
And who comes here to wish me well? A sweetly-scented angel fell, She laid her head upon my disbelief, And bathed me with her ever-smile.
jackinthegreen: Cream without Eric??? Santana without Carlos?? and not even with a stand-in player.....you're easily pleased, I reckon most people would not be happy to say the least...

jackinthegreen: If it was Scott that got Covid would they have played the gigs without a drummer?

ash: It's Tull not Cream and my answer stands. Now it there was no flute player...No flute no Tull . I've seen Ian play with just an ipod backing track it was great

jackinthegreen: "No flute, no Tull".......hmmmm tell that to MB when he's doing all the Tull stuff..
May 3, 2022 20:18:27 GMT
jackinthegreen: and I've seen Ian doing his one man thing with just the backing track too, but that's not billed as a Jethro Tull concert.....
May 3, 2022 20:19:44 GMT
jackinthegreen: I do agree he's brilliant at playing to his own backing tracks though
May 3, 2022 20:20:48 GMT
ash: My first answer stands in stone

rredmond: Well the radio.net plug in at the bottom of the site shocked me a bit!

maddogfagin: Yes it's a great addition to the Forum and I'm hoping radio.net will provide this service for years to come
May 14, 2022 15:58:55 GMT
jackinthegreen: Where is the link to this radio.net.......I don't see it folks
May 15, 2022 1:11:08 GMT

jackinthegreen: Cheers MD, I can only see the link from the "Home" page, but disappears when looking at threads etc, so find if I open it up in a new window it then plays constantly
May 15, 2022 13:29:06 GMT
jackinthegreen: So I have it bookmarked to open at any time....nice in the background if reading on t'internet

jackinthegreen: Did anyone on the forum see Tull at the De Montfort Hall in Leicester in September.....

smint100: Good Lord, why did no one tell me about the radio.net! I've spent a joyful afternoon in the garden watching the strawberries ripen - I mean, editing a book - and listening to unadulterated Tull. Heaven!
