[DMCForum] Re: BTTF actress dies.. (music -- so off topic...)



Like most young artists, the Beatles' music became much more
interesting as they left their teens/20's and moved closer to 30. The
human brain doesn't finish growing until 25 or so.

Of course by then they were becoming rather sick of one another.

I just hate it that I was too young for the 1965 Shea Stadium concert.
If my little silver car were a time machine, that's one place I'd
definitely go back to. Would swing by Bethel NY on my way back to
2005. And perhaps pay Carrie Cagle a visit for that first kiss again...

My favorite driving song is Molly Hatchet's Flirtin With Disaster.
Perhaps we should do a driving song poll (thence a compilation CD?)
