Your Monday Moment of Words Fail Me: Special These Geezers Still Got It Edition

The incomparable Cheap Trick and their brand new single "The Summer Looks Good On You."

Inspirational verse:
"Thought I'd seen it all/From mankind to tan lines/I ain't seen nothing like you"

Seriously -- that just blows me away. As my colleague Brett Milano, who turned me on to it, observed -- it may be the power pop song of the year.

Probably one of the greatest Summer songs since Summer in the City!!! Maybe BETTER.

The only way this song could be better is if Bun E Carlos were drumming. Rick Nielson's son is good, but there is some distinctive about Bun E. But I guess it is unrealistic to expect a band to stay together for 40 years.

BTW, on summer vacation, I ran into Rick Nielson and his son at a restaurant. Dude is taller than I expected.

Damn good tune. Always liked Nielson's guitar work.
