An Early Clue to the New Direction: Special "Oh Wow!" Edition

From 1970 or so, please enjoy legendary hippies The Grateful Dead and a live version of a song that eventually turns into their tribute to John Carpenter, the celebrated "Dark Star." Or so I'm told -- I frankly didn't have the patience to listen all the way through.



In any case, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

drugs as a marketing tool?

Gummo said...

So some of my tastes are decidedly twee.

Does that make me a bad person?

Well, yes, but that's besides the point.

Songs with surreal or nonsense lyrics?

(And steve, I really don't take thsi stuff all that seriously. We need a tongue-in-cheek emoticon.)
