    Maggie I think I got something to say to you.

    What comes to mind when you hear this song? Can you hear it in your head? Discuss.
    Wake up Maggie, I think I've got something to say to you
    It's late September and I really should be back at school
    I know I keep you amused, but I fell I'm being used

    Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more
    You led me away from home
    Just to save you from being alone

    You stole my heart and that's what really hurts
    The morning sun when it's in your eyes really shows your age
    But that don't worry me none, in my eyes you're everything
    I laughed at all of your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax

    Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more
    You led me away from home
    Just to save you from being alone

    You stole my soul and that's a pain I can do without
    All I needed was a friend to lend a helping hand
    [- From :http://www.elyrics.net/read/r/rod-st...ay-lyrics.html -]
    But you turned into a lover and mother
    What a lover, you wore me out, all you did was wreck my bed
    And in the morning kick me in the head

    Oh Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more
    You led me away from home
    'Cause you didn't want to be alone

    You stole my heart, I couldn't leave you if I tried
    I suppose I could collected my books and go on back to school
    Or steal my daddy's cue and make a living at playing pool
    Or find myself a rock and roll band, that needs a helping hand

    Oh Maggie, I wished I'd never seen your face
    You made a first class fool out of me
    But I'm as blind as a fool can be

    You stole my heart but I love you anyway
    I'd never seen your face
    I'll get on back home, one of these day

    I think of two things:

    1.) Maggie is Rod Stewart's "Mrs. Robinson", turned him out....

    2.) My mother (a Mario Lanza fan, I kid you not), said she liked this song when I was playing it one day; I bought her a copy of it (the old vinyl 45's remember those?). Twenty years later, she denied ever saying she liked it.

    I hear that song and I hear the rest of the album. After that, I smell the bourbon and hear the sloppy performances. As somebody in the music biz, many musicians are keen on the idea of tweaking their disc to the nth degree to get it EXACTLY perfect. This album was my talking point illustrating that you don't really need to get it perfect to make it sound great.

    +5 though I can't say the rest for the album. I've probably never heard another song on that album.

    I hear the drum hits at the beginning of the song, right before the first line.

    In 2003, the album was ranked number 172 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
    Mandolin Wind? (with the credit of the mandolin player listed as "the mandolin player" because they were too drunk to remember!)
    Every Picture Tells a Story?
    I'm Losing you?

    Pick it up, it's a great album.

    It also reminds me of Rod Stewart, which in turn reminds me of this:

    What comes to mind is someone needs to turn the classic rock station off.

    You asked.

    That's my folks' music. I sought my own genres and still do.

    I have my own genres too, almost all of them having nothing to do with music from that era. But I still like that song a lot.

    Thanks to Mike Myers, all I can think of when I hear a Scottish accent is Fat Bastard.

    I was 2 when that song came out...A good song is timeless. After you get finished trying to rebel against your mommy and daddy, you'll find there's a lot of "old" music that is simply amazing.

    I have plans for a 16' sail/row boat that I will start building this coming fall, I have already named it Maggie. I know it is going to be a time/money killer, and I fell in love with the lines of that boat the first time I saw it.

    links please? I loves me some hand built boats. When the wife and I had our Cal 20 out at the marina, there was a guy in a slip next to us that made a sail canoe that was unreal. He made everything, including wooden bits like blocks for the rigging and hand braided lines, hand sewn sails. It was a thing of beauty to see it sail.

    The Goat Island Skiff. I have had the plans for two years but built a very similar 12' summer breeze and some single sheet skiffs as practice boats first.

    I prefer the slightly sloppy sound...it lets me know real instruments are being played by real people. If its too tight, its probably not real people playing it.
