This week’s edition of Saturday Night Shut-In seamlessly ties back to the previous week’s topics for discussion. It’s remarkable how Mr. Moderator does it, no?

    “greatest hits albums are for housewives and little girls”. Truer words have never been spoken…..

    Yeah, few bands embraced both lameness and greatness in a single entity like the Guess Who. They were a bunch of ugly, pudgy guys with no sense of style or visual appeal. Their lyrics were often ridiculous be-a-cool-brother or take-a-hike-girl hogwash. Singer Burton Cumming wouldn’t know subtlety if it ran him over in a truck. Listen to the fake-Doors “Friends of Mine” to see just how laughably bad these guys can be. But…

    Could these guys write catchy songs or what? Fantastic singalong choruses. Fine melodies and harmonies. Even dumb stuff like “Albert Flasher” is hard to resist. For about four years (1968 to 1972), Guess Who really brightened up AM radio with their junk-food-tasty singles.

  3. Sexist.

  4. Great characterization of that band, tonyola!
