I hope Al doesn't have a commercial. Look at The Who. Every other car commercial is The Who. It's very annoying. No pun intended, but The Who have really sold out.

Dick's Automotive

Postby Well, Well, Well » Tue Jan 12, 2010 3:08 am

After listening to this song a bunch of times now I just have to say this is way crazier and better than Albuquerque. This is just insane. I'd start a poll but I guess you still can only do that in that one stupid subforum.

Isn't there like a 10 page thread about this issue?

I would have loved to have been able to search for it.

Hmm...it also seems the Rugburns did a song at one point titled "Me and Eddie Vedder" which shares about a third of a title with ANOTHER original ("genre" style parody) from RWS...

It's probably too late to for me to add this, but I just listened to Dicks' Automotive for the first time last night. The similarities are more apparent in the lyrical structure than in the composition, IMO. It is quite a dark song, but I wouldn't call it "nightmare inducing."

I would also say that Albuquerque is a far better (and funnier) song. Al did a way better job of going on a funny pointless tanget (aside from "I. HATE. SAUERKRAUT!!!" obviously) and DA just seems to stay on a linear story structure for eight-and-a-half minutes with a clumsy attempt to tie up the loose ends of the Julie/Dick/Narrator love triangle. Albuquerque is just a far more creative absurdist song any wany you look at it. 'Nuff said.
