YouTube of the day


No, wrong dolphins.

That's better. "Dolphins", by Fred Neil.

Based on the inane grin that keeps appearing on Fred Neil's face throughout this 1976 performance, I deduce one of three things. Either:

1. I have completely misunderstood what I have always taken to be a devastating song of loss.


2. Fred Neil has completely misunderstood his own song.


3. The drugs have taken hold.

(I was hepped to this fine clip by Mr Ian Penman's twitter feed. Thanks, dude.)
