This one of my favorite moments in rock’n’roll history. What Daniel gifts them, lyrically and melodically is positively earth shattering. I’ve never managed to make it through this without crying. I’m very proud that I ordered those cassettes directly from Daniel way back when. His all-time ranking is FF15 putting him officially ahead of The Beach Boys and the Beatles as the greatest melody maker of all-time.

Song fact: Notice the way Daniel emphasized the singular on neck when he sings “our neck”

What we can ascertain from that is the Speeding Motorcycle lives inside of him as part of his spirit.

You know the way someone like Hitler can make you feel ashamed to be a human being? Daniel makes me proud to be a human being.

Daniel if you ever read this please know I love you so much your music is something that makes life worth living.

I haven't checked out much of Yo La Tengo yet, I really should. That Speeding Motorcycle track is emotional indeed, and gorgeous

It's actually a cover of Daniel Johnston.
The album which it's featured, Fakebook, is full of covers.
It's a good one to start together with I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One and Painful.

Don’t backhand compliment Daniel though

If you ain’t onboard with his other stuff you need to get your ass onboard

You don’t take half measures with a genius like Daniel Johnston.

Or just base your stance on artists based on whether or not you enjoy their music.

I created the Freak Fighter Forty so people wouldn’t have to do that anymore.

^ HaHa! Your posts often have something unexpected about them, so I'm always curious to read them, Neapolitan.
On the matter of the dress, isn't it of such simple design that many women across the world have one in their wardrobe? I can imagine Jackie Kennedy, Sandie Shaw or Blondie all wearing something similar too.
That dress seems to be 60ish fashion, and it's possible both Jackie and Sandie Shaw were the original ones to sport that particular style. But other than that I don't know if every women would have that dress in their wardrobe. If anything some bands of the 90s borrowed from the fashion sense of the 60s.
