Song of the day: The Stranglers - "Go Buddy Go"
One reason I like Facebook is that people post songs on it that occasionally remind me of things I'd completely forgotten about. For example, somebody recently posted a Stranglers song, and that reminded me of two things:
1. I used to be a huge fan of The Stranglers*.
2. Our band used to play The Stranglers' "Go Buddy Go", a song that was a heap of fun to play. (I'm a bass player, and when you hear the bass line in the song you'll understand why it's fun to play.)
