Round 371.xx

Category: This Is The Beginning

Song: Such Great Heights

Artist: The Postal Service

Became that annoying television commercial about [redacted so no corporate advertising] logistics, nearly ruining a great beginning for the rest of us. Don't really know what to say about that. Modern life is rubbish?

For whatever reason, I had more talking type intros to songs in mind when I first started out, but doesn't look like the picks will match with what has been taken so far.   Here's one that always stuck.  Loves that it comes in hard and heavy, then you get that pause... (where I attempt to get the timing right while air drumming!! ) 

IN THE BEGINNING

371.xx:  METALLICA - SAD BUT TRUE

e-Mk4 who needs a new name because those are a lot of things to type with proper punctuation and all...has gone to bed.

You used a two-letter abbreviation for him in the solo Beatles countdown, wouldn't that be easier?

This Is the Beginning

371.PIP Welfare Mothers -- Neil Young and Crazy Horse

Comes right out and hits you IN THE FACE.

372.PIP It Was There That I Saw You -- ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead

This floored me when I first heard it -- all kinds of hazy space and then BAM! 

It's also the song that made me realize my hearing was shot. I played it for a friend and, not that I could tell, I had the volume way up so I could hear the first part, and then the BAM! part was agonizing to him because it was so loud, but it sounded normal to me.

A lot of my favorite intros are already drafted. I've always liked this intro a lot.  Eddie had some great riffs.

 

So true.  I think I crossed about 20 off my list of stuff that's long gone.

Don't love doubling up here on the last pick but this intro is just too incredible and it's not my fault KP took the wrong song.

I'll try to do the spreadsheet.

FIL was supposed to have surgery tomorrow for the new growths but we heard from anaesthesiologist and post-op but no one to actually schedule surgery, so we're thinking maybe pushed til Sunday? This is to say I'll be around this weekend. 

Mrs. NV took him in at 9:30 this AM for an 11 AM surgery. Apparently there was an emergency that required the operating room, or surgeon, or something... and everything got pushed back. 

As of 7 PM he still hadn't made it in for surgery.  That was the last update because that was when the nurses shift change was happening. We were told we'd get a call saying when he goes in and another when he's out, after which is a 3 hour recovery but we haven't got that first call. We're hoping they missed and surely he's in by now but we thought that earlier too and it wasn't the case. There's a chance now he ends up staying overnight to recover. 

Meanwhile, he hasn't eaten of course because of the surgery. Mrs. NV is obviously worried. Before he went in he said "make sure you take care of your mom" which really didn't help. 

Anyway, not much we can do but wait for the phone call and see what the story is. I'm watching hockey while she tries to have a nap. May make a couple bonus picks for distraction.

Thoughts sent your way. It was 2-2 WSH/BOS end of the second last I looked.

Best wishes. Went through some scary stuff with my FIL last week as well. He was hospitalized this week but his fever finally broke and he seems back on track. This stage of life taking care of our parents sucks.

You post a bonus and I'll launch a counter bonus.

You used a two-letter abbreviation for him in the solo Beatles countdown, wouldn't that be easier? 

OK, can we all agree he will go by OH?  That'll be easier.

Best of luck to him. Is your wife allowed to be inside the hospital?

Unfortunately no, we've had a spike in covid cases here recently and we're still in a lockdown/stay home order for at least the next couple weeks still which also means no one with him at the hospital :(

These guys haven't been drafted yet and I think this is one of the most iconic rock intros of the past 20 years.

Bonus.NV - Time to Pretend - MGMT - This is the Beginning

Swear I almost picked this but I've been picking them a lot lately in previous drafts and for Footballpalooza.

Taken for In My Room in round 314 by ... you. 

(This never gets old 😆)

:bag:

Not to pour salt in the wound but I just checked to see what Tragically Hip songs are taken and you also took "So Hard Done By" in round 79 for 90s on 9 and round 291 for Oh Canada. :lol:

Did we do a category that was basically "best bridges"? I know we did "The Bridge" which was not about bridges at all but about 70s light rock. I thought we did bridges too but I can't find it.

I don't think so but we are always accepting new categories
