by Sublime. from Wikipedia:
The official title of the song references the date April 29, 1992; however, the lyric is sung as, "April 26, 1992." It has been said this was a mistake, but the take was strong enough the band kept it. Theories have developed about the true integrity of the song's lyrics.Lyrics excerpt:
April 26th, 1992I've found it interesting to note that some songs reference specific dates, and I've decided to post those on the appropriate date tduring this year.
There was a riot on streets
Tell me where were you?
You were sittin' home watchin' your TV
While I was participating in some anarchy
First spot we hit it was my liquor store
I finally got all that alcohol I can't afford
With red lights flashin', time to retire
And then we turned that liquor store into a structure fire
Next stop we hit, it was the music shop,
It only took one brick to make the window drop
Finally we got our own P.A.
Where do you think I got this guitar that you're hearing today?
Since today is T Tuesday at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog, I'll share the coffee I'm drinking while I listen to the music. Coffee is my usual hot drink of choice, and I always take it black:
My mother drank hers black because back during the Depression she wanted to use her sugar ration for other things. I didn't realize folks put sugar and milk in coffee until after I'd been drinking coffee for years. Now sugar just seems to turn it into a different drink entirely, and milk or cream? Yuck ;)
