When Dinosaurs Roamed The Earth

I'm not sure why but I've been listening to Bob Seger a lot recently. It may be the faint echoes of Van the Man, but I think it is to do with nostalgia. Not nostalgia for when I used to listen to him first time round - I never did - but because so many of his songs look wistfully back at the boy he used to be that I find myself doing the same. Me listening to Bob is like two middle aged men in a pub comparing notes on our wild years and sighing.

Here are a couple from the Bobster (as he used to insist on being called when we trawled the bars of the red light district - happy days): "Fire Lake" and "Mainstreet".


And here he is with a dramatic re-imagining of "Night Moves", featuring Joey from Cheers*:

* As Mister F points out below, "Joey from Cheers" is a mistake. I meant "Woody from Friends".

  2. You're right, I mean "Friends" don't I. They all look the same to me these American sitcoms - coming over here, stealing our TV schedules.
